Pin Oak Middle School is designed for a capacity of 1,200 students. The academic portion of this facility consists of three houses of 400 students (one house for each grade level). Each individual house contains three learning groups of 133 students. Each learning group consists of five classes of about 27 students each; a science lab; and math, English, social studies and reading rooms.

Each house offers the perception of a smaller school, with each separate learning group having a distinctive character and unique identity.
