Manitou Springs High School

Mustang News - February 25th, 2022

From The Principal...

Thank you to the families and community members that engaged with us during the Manitou Springs High School Parent and Community Forum on Thursday evening. We appreciate the topics that were brought up, and we look forward to future Q&A sessions. We will continue to focus on family interactions with staff and administration, and we hope to build and strengthen those relationships. We want to share a vision with our community of our children coming to school feeling safe and valued. Please enjoy the photo below taken by Melissa McElhaney (District 14 Employee) of a snowy day at Manitou Springs High School.
