Fine Arts and/or Performing and Visual Arts

HISD’s Magnet programs in the fine arts build on academics to give students opportunities for creative expression. Young artists work together to produce high-quality performances, publications, and exhibitions that reflect their understanding of the arts, develop their critical-thinking and problem-solving skills, and enhance their self-esteem. Excellence in the arts is considered an integrated, natural extension of the academic program. Participants receive specialized instruction in a variety of areas.

Grade average of 78 and a conduct grade average of "S" is required in order to be considered for audition at all Fine Arts middle schools.
