Curriculum & Instruction
Manassas City Public Schools, through the combined efforts of students, parents, community, and staff, seeks to provide quality education in a safe environment that will ensure that students attain the knowledge, skills and attitudes to become lifelong learners and productive citizens.
At the elementary level, a strong basic education in the core areas of English, mathematics, science, and social studies is emphasized. Technology is incorporated in all areas of the curriculum. With a foundation of early literacy in these core subjects, skills and knowledge for a technologically and socially advanced world of the future can be achieved.
A core team of teachers and exploratory elective courses highlight the intermediate and middle school programs for students. The core course offerings are English, mathematics, science and social studies. Foreign language is offered at the eighth-grade level, as is Algebra. Other opportunities for students include: art, band, chorus, orchestra, computer, technology education, physical education, and STEM.
The high school curriculum offerings include: English, mathematics, social studies, laboratory science, and foreign language. In addition to the core curriculum in these areas, students may select accelerated, honors, and Advanced Placement (AP) and dual enrollment (DE) courses.
A full range of additional academic areas such as Title 1, Gifted and Talented, fine arts, early literacy learning, English for Speakers of Other Languages, Special Education and others are offered to meet the needs of our students.
