I have gone to Manchester Community Schools all my life. I always appreciate their strides to make the school better for their students. They are constantly searching for more ways to improve safety, academics, and atmosphere. Most of the teachers I have had or met truly care about their students and their academic success. They are also very open to student suggestions for new clubs and extra-curriculars, as well as ideas to improve our athletics. I would say I am lucky to have grown up in this school system. The only thing I think could use improvement would be, nothing! Things can always be improved but I see nothing that is truly in need of immediate improvement. Go Squires!!

Manchester Community School is a great place for learning, fun, and extracurricular activities. They offer a variety of things for all types of kids to do. I enjoy most of the staffs' enthusiasm in their job, however, I believe that the safety aspect is artificial and the teachers can sometimes be ignorant of other kids needs. While the focus on college is good and the food is great, the safety just continues to haunt me. I watched a kid punch a teacher in the face and in return the teacher was fired. It made me upset and I had to confront reality. Schools are supposed to be safe and fair, and while this school shines in many ways, safety is a clear failure in my honest and humble opinion.
What I like about Manchester is that the faculty and also other students help you through each year no matter what. If you're struggling, then there's someone there asking you if you need help. We have amazing teachers that teach us the materials that we need and they teach very well. Manchester has a great learning environment. We also have a great sports program. There's many different options to choose from and whatever sport you choose, they always give you the support you need and encourage you to do your best.
