I greatly enjoyed my experience at Manchester Central High School. I always got a strong sense from my teachers that they enjoyed teaching and were happy they were able to teach at Central each day. Being located in a city, and taking in kids from nearby towns has created a very diverse group of students that attend Central, which I have certainly valued becuase a diverse population brought in a share of culture, perspectives, and ideas. The students have a great sense of community. Our academics are very diverse, sending kids to Ivy League schools at least every year i've attended. The guidance and administrative staff is helpful and always goes above and beyond to be helpful. There are so many options for clubs and sports. All of that combined makes Central a very well-rounded school full of opportunities. Because of that each student there has a great sense of Central Pride! I do not wish I could've gone to any other high school!
The school board does an okay job listening to what parents want for their children; their opinions are considered but changes aren't always made. Unfortunately, it is not necessarily the safest school district either and staff members do little to enforce behavioral rules. For example, I attend Central High School and the fire alarm gets pulled almost every day, sometimes multiple times a day. We have also had multiple shooting and bomb threats, and fights break out in the halls and cafeteria all the time. Students also smoke marijuana and vape in the bathrooms and teachers don't seem to notice (which was the same when I went to Hillside Middle School as well). Not to mention that they've made the grading policy more and more lenient since Covid started, and many students (myself included) are stressed as they don't actually know the material they are learning, despite the fact that their grades say otherwise. Overall, this school district is somewhat of a mess and we need change.
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.
