The Manvel Public School’s mission statement is, "Manvel School is Committed to Helping All Students Succeed." This principle guides the school on a daily basis, with every student. It is the school's goal to provide students with the skills to develop intellectually, socially, emotionally and physically within a stimulating educational environment.

The Manvel Public School serves children in preschool through eighth grade, with 15 to 20 students in each class. It has the opportunity to provide small class sizes and individual attention to students, and at the same time, it is large enough to provide superior education. The students know that they are expected to succeed. Instrumental in achieving success for all has been the Response to Intervention program. Each year, during the first weeks of classes, students are assessed to determine specific academic needs. Interventions are applied where needed, and individual progress is monitored. Students are excelling due to this methodical program paired with the expertise of the teaching staff.

During the summer months, Manvel School opens its doors to offer an extensive kindergarten through twelfth grade seven-week program for approximately 100 children of migrant farm workers. The children are enrolled in programs focusing on math and language arts. The students in grades nine through twelve participate in credit recovery and high school credit classes.

Manvel Public School serves the needs of all students, including permanent residents and migrant students, bringing meaning to its mission statement that all students will succeed.
