I'm Looking For...


            Welcome to Houston Middle Schools web page! 
            Each year districts and schools are required to provide information to parents as well as opportunities for them to be involved in the educational decisions that affect their children.  Parents have the right to inquire about the professional qualifications of their child’s teacher and paraprofessionals that work with the child.  This information is explained to parents in the attached Right to Know letter.  Distribution of this letter is a requirement under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act detailed under section 1111(h)(6)(A).   Please click on the link below to view the document.

            Questionnaire:  Questions? Comments? Please feel free to email us at HMS@matsuk12.us
