As a designated Early College High School, the Texas Education Agency requires recruitment efforts to target the following areas:

Mansfield Early College High School recruitment and enrollment processes shall identify, recruit, and enroll the subpopulations of at-risk students (as defined by PEIMS), including, but not limited to, students who are of limited English proficiency, students with disabilities, or students who have failed a state administered assessment.

Mansfield ECHS shall identify, recruit, and enroll subpopulations (in addition to those who are at risk as defined by PEIMS) that are historically underrepresented in college courses (e.g., first generation college goers, males, students of low socioeconomic status, African Americans, Hispanics, and Native Americans.)

Students who do not meet the target recruitment may still apply and get accepted into the school.
