Growth Through Innovation


Information about New Tech, International Baccalaureate, and Fine Arts programs 

Manor ISD middle and elementary schools have started developing specific academic focuses in the 2017-18 school year. Developing these programs will give parents a choice within Manor ISD, and open up new academic opportunities for all students.

Fine Arts Academies 

Fine Arts academies will focus on creative curriculum at all levels to engage the whole child while encouraging the highest level of personal achievement. Studies have shown that effective fine arts programs help reduce drop-out rates, raise student attendance, foster a love for learning, and enhance student self-accountability. Fine Arts Academies also help bridge the gap between the school community and home while also increasing opportunities for parental involvement and community support. School children exposed to drama, music, and dance may do a better job at mastering reading, writing, and math than those who focus solely on academics, according to a report by the Arts Education Partnership.

Participating schools

  • Decker Middle School
  • Decker Elementary School
  • Oak Meadows Elementary School

International Baccalaureate Schools 

Manor ISD will begin the process of working toward International Baccalaureate certification at four of its schools in 2017. While the process can take three years, the training and instruction teachers receive will help benefit students right away. International Baccalaureate schools teach using a global perspective. IB schools encourage multiculturalism and multilingualism. Also, students at IB schools are encouraged to think independently and to drive their own learning as well as become more culturally aware.

Participating schools

  • Manor Middle School
  • Bluebonnet Trail Elementary School
