A friend of mine is a teacher in the ISA program. I'll DM you his contact info. From what I've seen, it's a really amazing program, and if I had kids that I wanted to keep in public school, I'd put them in there. Make sure you read about them online.

ISA is the only high school in NEISD to get an Exemplary rating this year. They must be doing something right over there.

ISA differs from the other NEISD magnet programs in that admission is done by lottery. The other programs have competitive admission.

If you have an 8th grader in an NEISD school, watch the correspondence from school (or the web site calendar) for a Magnet Night at your child's school. Each magnet program makes a separate presentation and you can go from room to room to check out any or all of the presentations. IIRC, Magnet Night happens late in the fall. A few weeks after that, the individual schools have open houses on their campuses, where you can learn more about the programs that interest you.

STEM was a brand new program last year, so it's just getting on it's feet. The concept behind it is very cool, but we'll see how the execution is carried out. A good friend of mine is working on the technology side of things with STEM. I'll see what info I can get from him when we have lunch next, and I'll PM you with info.
