About HISD’s Mandarin Chinese School

HISD’s first ever Mandarin Chinese Language Immersion Magnet School will open in time for the 2012-2013 school year, the Board of Education decided unanimously at its December monthly meeting.

The school will be located at the site of the former Holden Elementary School, 812 W. 28th St., and will initially serve students in the early elementary school grades, with additional grades to be added in subsequent years.

The school will serve youngsters from throughout the district, and transportation will be provided.
