Manchester School District Reviews

Manchester Community College is flexible, affordable, and of good quality. It offers numerous opportunities to students and adults to further their education and become skilled in their field. The teachers were personable and professional, while also helpful. It offers a variety of majors, career paths, and programs that can be tailored to your needs and wants. Staff and teachers WANT you to do well, and can help you find jobs and other opportunities with ease. The school is known for providing students with a quality education to those who may or may not be able to afford to learn at a four year institution. That being said, MCC lacked in the area of preparing students for transferring to outside college institutions. Although the school has a rich learning environment that embraces all students and adults, the amount of work I completed for MCC is nothing compared to the average student living and learning at a higher four year college.

I am currently a student at Manchester High School and I've been in the Manchester School District since Kindergarten. Between all those years I've attended Washington, Verplanck, Bennet Academy, Illing MS, and now MHS. My experience has been really positive. The teachers at the middle school and high school have been really supportive and want to help you succeed. All my experiences with teachers have been positive. I have never had any problems with them. My transition in between the middle school and high school was very helpful. They have programs here at the high school that help us get to know the school, like the LINK Leaders. The Manchester School District is always including everyone, regardless of anything. We are a diverse town, which makes it a positive place to be in. All departments are unique in a way. We offer programs that not every district can offer. The district is a very positive place to be and learn in.
The Manchester School District has made progressive strides towards more inclusive, engaging, and rigorous schooling. The teachers do what they can to keep kids interested in subject content and emphasize the importance of utilizing resources whenever possible.
Like all school districts, there are a couple of changes that could be made to improve the system. The secondary schools could make more of an effort to keep the parents and guardians of students involved and there should be an equal emphasis on extracurriculars (the athletics department isn't the only department that has things going on- there's the arts, sciences, etc.)
As a whole, I'm proud to say I was taught through MPS. Thanks to the supportive staff and a multitude of extracurriculars, I was able to make the most of my education and I look forward to see how my younger sibling does.
