Mandarin Chinese Language Immersion Magnet School Reviews

4 reviews

We have been at the Mandarin Immersion Magnet School for 7 years since its inception. We have loved that it has consistently ranked high as one of the most diverse elementary schools in Texas and in the U.S. The principal and teachers care deeply about the students, and parental involvement is high. Learning in Mandarin 50% of the day (math, science, and Mandarin) is not easy and not for everyone. Due to the nature of Chinese, there is a lot of rote memorization, homework, and repetition of character writing that is found in schools in China and Taiwan, but may be different for people used to the American school system. If you treasure diversity, high expectations, and learning Mandarin, then our school is great!

The majority of the teachers at MIMS are very hard working and dedicated. You see them leaving the school late at night and showing up to volunteer at school events during their time off. A lot of families who value education tend to be drawn to MIMS too. You often see these same families taking extra tutoring outside of school. The children of these families will do well no matter what school they attend. It just so happens that they see MIMS as a rare opportunity to learn Mandarin which is one of the most in demand and most difficult language in the world. It is the only K-8 mandarin immersion program in the entire state. While there are improvements that could be made, MIMS still remains as one of the better schools in HISD in terms of community/culture/and yes, academics. You're not going to see gang violence/drugs/alcohol/vaping at this school like you would at others. The kids here are pretty sheltered.
All about test scores. Many inexperienced teachers and high turnover. Good if you are a parent who buys into the test score game, otherwise, look elsewhere.
