Through the transformation of Sam Houston, Midland ISD has created a dynamic collegiate pathway for students in our community starting as young as PreKindergarten. The college preparatory model instills the expectation from the first day on campus that every student will go to college. College prep classroom instruction is enhanced by exposure to university campuses and confidence-building experiences that prepare parent and student expectations of college. At Houston, we employ Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID). AVID strategies are used to incorporate student success skills, writing through inquiry, and organizational skills. AVID enables students to develop a vision for their future, gain confidence in their abilities, and take ownership of their learning.

    Campus doors open at 7:15 a.m.

    Tardy bell rings at 7:45 a.m. All student arriving to school after that time must report to the front office. If a student arrives after 8:00 a.m., a parent will need to escort them to the front office to sign in.
