Mansfeld, located across from the University of Arizona, has a rich tradition of academic excellence. The school is a magnet school with a focus on science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). Teachers in all content areas embed STEM practices into their curriculum preparing students to think critically and collaboratively as they solve problems. Additionally each quarter focuses students on answering an essential question that is addressed across campus from a variety of perspectives.
The focus on STEM subjects and processes has increased collaboration among teachers so that students can make connections between what they learn from one class and the next and can apply their knowledge beyond school. Mansfeld also has a strong before- and after-school program to both improve and enrich student learning.
