We join 164 other Expeditionary Learning schools nationwide committed to learning that is active, challenging, meaningful, public, and collaborative.
In our middle school, students take responsibility for their learning as members of small advisories called Crews.
Students from different grade levels help each other learn.
Throughout the day, students practice demonstrating the Habits of a Manara Explorer: gratitude, responsibility, perseverance, collaboration, and compassion.
As part of their expedition on insects, kindergarten students investigate the real world as entomologists.
Welcome To The Manara Family
Welcome to Manara Academy Public Charter School. We warmly greet 460 students from Kindergarten through 8th grade every day. They enter the building eager and ready to learn thanks to the support that they receive from their parents and teachers.
Through the use of Expeditionary Learning, Manara inspires the motivation for our students to learn, engages the teachers, takes students to new levels of focus and effort and transforms our students, parents and teachers to become leaders of their own learning. Our teachers provide a model that challenges students at all skill levels with high level tasks and active roles in the classroom.

|Special Message From 1st Grade|
Dear Manara Friends and Families,
The first graders of Manara Academy will showcase their learning today over our expedition "Forces of Nature". Throughout this expedition the students have studied the affects that natural disasters can have on communities. We never imagined such a tragedy as yesterday would occur.
We would like to dedicate our "Forces of Nature" Expedition to all the families and victims of yesterday's tragedy in Moore, Oklahoma. Our hearts are with all the the children and staff at Briarwood Plaza Elementary School. We want to help the families and victims so we have set up a site for you to donate. All the funds go directly to the victims through the American Red Cross. Please visit the link and donate to help. Here is the link: http://www.crowdrise.com/manara/fundraiser/manaraacademyinc
