Greetings Manara Family

As Superintendent, I would like to personally welcome all of you to a Manara Academy. We are having a wonderful year and I believe we can expect the remainder of the academic year to be characterized by ambition and excellence. In fact, this year’s theme is “Expect Excellence!” During the short period of time I have been able to call the Manara family my own, I have been met by nothing but the enthusiasm of a highly diligent student body, the dedication of an exceptional team of educators, and the support of parents who have entrusted their children's education to Manara Academy. It is an honor to have been given the opportunity to be part of this.
