Are you questioning your near future? Are high school choices pressuring you? Well then, this article is for you! To start off, you should get advice from a former POMS student.

This former POMS student said she was indecisive and confused during the time when she was picking her high schools. She also said that you shouldn’t pick based on friends because you’ll probably make new friends. She further stated that she relied on family to help her with the process.

This advice might have helped you but if it didn’t this quote might:

“Mistakes and pressure are inevitable; the secret to getting past them is to stay calm.”  -Travis Bradberry

You can apply for up to 5 magnet programs. Phase one of the school choice application ends December 8th, where all applications sent by families inside the HISD boundary will be considered. Phase 2 deadline is May 31st and the phase 3 deadline is August 10th. Phase 2 and 3 are where school applications are considered in the order they were sent. For help you can go on the Pin Oak website or the HISD website.
