Welcome to Mannsdale Elementary!
We hope you find this website an informative tool that will give you a glimpse into the life of a Mannsdale Maverick! We are a state-of-the-art facility in Madison, MS for students in grades K-2.
The 2020-2021 school year will be our 12th year as a campus. The Madison County School District is one of the most desirable in our state and the reputation of Madison County Schools is widely known and respected. In fact, Family Circle magazine named Madison as one of the "10 Best Cities to Live." We excel in academics, athletics and the arts. We feel a sense of community among all our schools. It's a great day to be Maverick!
Mannsdale Elementary has continued on the path of excellence set in the Madison County School District. We were named a STAR school by the state of Mississippi this year. Our test scores are some of the highest in the state of Mississippi.
Our building features a large library with a customized reading room and eight research stations. These stations are equipped with Destiny Quest, United Streaming/Discovery Education, a classroom set of iPads and many other valuable educational tools. Hallways and classrooms are brightly colored with modern art sculptures and an alphabet floor mural in our foyer. Festive banners can be seen outside classrooms with inspirational quotes by famous authors and athletes. A multi-purpose cafetorium with a raised stage, a gymnasium, our own rock wall, an outdoor fitness center, music room and computer lab are all special features in our new building. We have a school nurse and counselor who meet with students each week. Students attend P.E., music, library, computer and art class each week. Students also meet with our counselor for character education classes. Mannsdale P.E. students can participate in the Mississippi Blues Fun Run, the Presidential Fitness Awards and local "Punt, Pass and Kick" competitions.
Our impressive staff has been given a common planning time each day to plan arts-infused lessons among each grade focusing on master artists and authors. We have adopted the Fountas and Pinnell "Guided Reading" approach to teaching reading along with guided reading lessons and writer's workshop. We recently received an arts integration grant through the Whole Schools Initiative. Our K-2 students learn problem solving and higher level mathematical skills. Stop by and tour our state of the art facility. Our enrollment in grades K-2 is approximately 675 students.
