Manheim Township School District Reviews

I moved to Pennsylvania from New Jersey going into my Junior year of high school...not ideal. However, I actually found my transition a lot easier than expected. The students at Manheim Township HS are actually quite friendly. I found the faculty extremely friendly and very supportive of the students. I had a great relationship with early all of my teachers. They were always willing to go out of their way to help students. The guidance counselors at MTHS are phenomenal. The best I have ever seen. The guidance counselors are always, always there for students regarding college, schedule changes, or if they have issues with other students. There are a number of school security officers that patrol the school so that trouble is kept to a minimum. I had a great time at Manheim Township High School!
