Mission Statement:

The 10th Grade Academy believes that students in Manual Arts High School should be as well educated as any in the world. The school staff is committed to making a positive impact on the lives of students creating a highly motivated, healthy, successful, safe and effective learning environment. All 10th graders have the capacity to be high achievers, life -long learners and the reason we are here.

Students will be active, engaged, and informed citizens to meet the challenges of a global society.

merit system1
Merit System
  • The administration expects ALL students at Manual Arts HS to be well disciplined and to maintain the highest standards of behavior at all times.
  • The merit system has been chosen as a guide for student discipline at Manual Arts.


  • Every student begins his/her school career with 100 merits. When a student makes a poor choice, merits may be taken away (see discipline policy matrix).
  • Each student is required to maintain a merit record of at least 90 to remain in good standing.
  • A student is required to earn merits immediately upon falling below 90.

Ineligibility List

  • When a student’s merit balance goes below 90, he/she is put in a weekly ineligibility list. Students appearing on the ineligibility list may not participate in school activities or athletics in any way until the merits are earned.

Earning Merits

  • Attending one hour of after school or Saturday detention for each merit needed—1 hour detention makes up for (1) demerit.
  • Completing an assignment given by the Assistant Principal—1 assignment makes up for (1) demerit.
  • Completing school service and turning in a contract for demerit removal to the Assistant Principal of Discipline’s office.

Failure to serve detention may result in suspension from school (Ed Code 48900)
