The overall quality of academic programs at Manassas is very decent. The staff is highly qualified and they really care about the students and their well being. It's my opinion that a lot of gifts and talents are being ignored due to the lack of an Art curriculum and the Music program should be expanded and used to the fullest. There are a lot of gifted children in the Memphis City School system and music and art is the strength of the system! By having a stronger Music, Art, Media and Theatrical base, this would eliminate the majority of the discipline and attendance problems associated with Memphis City Schools in my opinion.
