There are several things to consider when reflecting upon the Manchester School District. Each school is different and will lead to different experiences and therefore a different education. Most teachers genuinely care about the students and put 150% into their job. Some on the other hand will openly admit they hate teaching! It really it a hit or miss. Truthfully, you must make the most of the various opportunities given to you. That is how you will make it the best it can be.

Overall the school district has poor education standards. Children are often struggling in school because of this. While there are great teachers, some act worse than the children! Being a student in this district was hard as teachers offered no support with education. People who can make a difference in the toxic school environment ignore the problems.
I’m attending a school under The Manchester School District (MSD), and I must say the schools here overall are average. I transferred to a school in Manchester, roughly 5 years ago. Over the years, I noticed that many schools here, are not funded properly; the funds we received were not spent properly either. For example the school I attend received funding couple months ago. Sadly the money was spent on flat screen TVs and smart boards for each classroom. That seemed to me like a waste of money because many teachers never bothered to use the TVs; we still used projectors, black and white boards. I honestly believe that the funds could have been used for better things.
Although, the schools here are not the best most faculties are great. Many of them are dedicated teachers. Many teachers here teach 2 or 3 different classes and they give up time to help their students.
While the student body is very diverse and the school does provide and great variety of classes and clubs.
