Classroom Observations -- We open the NewTech@Mann classrooms on the first Tuesday of every month (10:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.) for current and prospective parents to come and see how a project-based classroom works. Your student is welcome to come with you. You do not need to call ahead, just come to the J. L. Mann front office at 10:30 a.m. on the first Tuesday of any month. Please note that tours are cancelled if we are not in school.
Information Nights -- We also offer several NewTech@Mann Information Nights at J. L. Mann High School for interested families. At these sessions students, staff and administrators present information about the NewTech@Mann program and answer questions. We strongly encourage you to bring your student with you.

Applications are Live for 2019-2020 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 2019-2020 school year. You can access the application form via the following link now through the March 8th deadline:
