Manor ISD Today
Over the past two years, Manor ISD has announced it will implement Fine Arts, New Tech, and International Baccalaureate programs at its middle and elementary school campuses. These programs are a means of providing families choice within the district, as well as opening up students to new opportunities.
At the high school level, the district is moving forward with new initiatives, such as expanding its career and technical education offerings, creating new ways for students to earn college credit, doubling capacity at Manor New Tech High School, and building a new senior high school for grades 11 and 12. The new senior high school will open in August 2018. Furthermore, Manor New Tech High School has earned national recognition for its approach to project-based learning, and the Manor Early College High School has grown tremendously while offering students a chance to earn their Associate's Degree at the same time as their High School Diploma.
