Tutoring and Remediation Opportunities

NewTech@Mann Applications are Live for 2021-2022 School Year

We would like to take a minute to talk about a program that is available for students in our school called NewTech@Mann. This school-within-a-school uses real-world projects to make learning authentic and meaningful. In these classes, students work primarily in groups to improve collaboration and communication skills while tackling problems that are realistic and simulate experiences they may have in their future careers. Over the past four years, students in this program have scored exceptionally high on standardized testing. If you think your student would be interested in this program, we are now accepting applications for the 2021-2022 school year. You can access the application form via the following link now:

J. L. Mann and Kristin Burrell Nominated for National Advocacy Awards

The SCPTA President has nominated JL Mann High School and Kristin Burrell (parent volunteer) for the National Advocacy Awards! Their efforts on behalf of students in the school community and district has not gone unnoticed and they have the full support of the SCPTA! They will truly represent us well! We are honored to nominate you and share how awesome you are on behalf of the children of South Carolina!  

One reflection the State President would like to share: "Kristin Burrell is a genuine individual that gives freely of her time! When speaking with her on the telephone you gleamed some insight into a truly humble and kind individual! She is the kind of person that South Carolina needs advocating for Greenville County School District and the SCPTA!" 

Congratulations JL Mann High School & Kristin Burrell! We are so proud to have you represent us for a National PTA Advocacy Award!

ACE Awards Nominations

The ACE Awards (Advocates for Character and Education) was created by Greg Blatt, Founder and Executive Director of Coaches 4 Character. It is an annual award given to 74 male and female students from each of the 36 Greenville County middle and high schools.  It will honor one male and one female from each middle and high school in grades 8 and 12 who are considered the true “unsung heroes” in their schools. These are students who might go unnoticed for one reason or another, students who are role models, who work hard and give their best effort, students who are all too often not recognized for their accomplishments, or students who demonstrate unusual commitment to academics despite various obstacles. The award ceremony will be organized and hosted by Coaches 4 Character and Greenville county school counselors. Anyone can nominate a student: faculty and staff, parents, community members, and students. Click here for the nomination form is online at

Nominations open December 7, 2020 and close February 8, 2021.
