The Manchester Township School District has its positives and negatives. I have always been in the Manchester Township School District. One thing I wish to change is the technique of scheduling for the high school. But the teachers are truly great and work to make the students the best they can be. The school district is very safe and if you ever feel unsafe they're officers and security guards there always ready to help. The school systems do daily fire drills and lock downs every month. The school district is proud of all their student athletes and their effort. Overall, the Manchester Township School District is not a district that you would regret having your child in!

Manchester’s schools are great. They are small but big in that there is smaller class sizes in the advance or honor classes so that can have the one on one with teachers, but big enough to be diverse. The teachers I feel are there for the students and go out of way to help when ever they can. The high school classes for advance and honors classes need to have more options so that students that are trying to challenge themselves have the option to do so and not loose out. The sports programs and extra curricular actives offer a wide variety so that students can find there niche.
I really enjoyed my time at Manchester Township High School! Most teachers always put students' best interest as priority. I made lifelong friendships and I graduated feeling very prepared for college.
