Mann Elementary - Mastery Charter School

Your Neighborhood School in Wynnefield

Mann is a neighborhood elementary school serving over 555 students and their families in Kindergarten through 6th grade. Mann is a special place where your child will experience the joy of learning in a safe, positive environment. We focus on 5 core values: respect, responsibility, hard work, teamwork and kindness.  Students who attend Mann Elementary have the opportunity to automatically attend our Shoemaker Campus for 7th – 12th grade, thus giving them a full K-12 Mastery experience.  From music to art to field trips-Mann students take part in a well-rounded education.  We work closely with our families to ensure Mann is a place where every child loves to learn.







Our School

  • Students come to school excited to start their day.  
  • The day starts with free breakfast.
  • Students are greeted by their teacher and head to their classroom for morning meeting.  
  • We value reading.  Students have at least 2-3 hours of reading where they work in small groups with the teacher.  
  • Students have classes in math, social studies, and science.
  • Students head back to the cafeteria to enjoy free lunch.
  • Afterwards, students enjoy free play or structured recess.
  • Students engage in art, physical education, music or social emotional learning. We are proud to educate the whole child at Mastery.
  • Once the school day is over, students may stay to participate in clubs or the aftercare program.
