Each year, Mansfield High School has the opportunity to select two members of the sophomore class to represent our school at the Massachusetts Hugh O'Brian Youth (HOBY) Leadership Seminar. HOBY is a non-profit organization that was founded by actor Hugh O'Brian after spending time with Dr. Albert Schweitzer. Founded in 1958, HOBY's mission is to inspire and develop our global community of youth and volunteers to a life dedicated to leadership, service and innovation. The organization provides leadership education to sophomores across the United States and throughout the world. Students are taught how to think, not what to think through a variety of teaching modes. There is also a community service element to the program where students are encouraged to give back to local communities and understand the importance of civic involvement.There is an extensive application process where the entire sophomore class was invited to complete an application to be considered. A panel of judges blindly read the application and selected two representatives. This year's representatives are Jillian Kern and Paige Oliveira. In June, these students will attend the 3-day leadership seminar at Bentley University. For more information please visit;

Mansfield High students flourish in AP courses.

From the Attleboro Sun Chronicle.Advanced placement courses allow high school students to do rigorous, college-level work while potentially gaining college credit,  and Mansfield High School students appear to be thriving on them. Success in the courses, which range from English to science, history and mathematics, is measured by annual test s from the College Board that grade students on a scale of 1to 5.Students who achieve the highest grades may qualify for college creditor to skip an equivalent course when they enter college.Results from last spring’s AP exams showed that 86 percent of MHS students who took the tests received grades of 3 or higher.While all high schools do not offer the same array of courses,that’s the highest percentage of any area school district, including charter schools, school officials say.
