Manheim Township School District Reviews

My time at Manheim Township has been great! Besides the typical teenage drama, I feel that I have really gotten a full high school experience. My school offers a diverse array of classes and have had the privilege of taking advantage of these course. Furthermore, school events never disappoint. I have so many memories from pep rallies and dances that I will treasure forever. Overall, I feel comfortable and able to thrive in Manheim Townships environment and am grateful to be a part of this community. One thing, however, I hope to see change in the future is the balance between girls and boys sports. Title 9 is important to me and sports culture in schools nationwide, and I hope to see both sports valued more equally by the school in coming years.

I enjoy the academic challenges that set me apart from other students in other school districts. I would like our school to inform us on different scholarship opportunities or programs abroad. I am aware that other schools in my discrict have opportunities to observe surgeries at local hospitals or they have guest speakers that inform them on different programs they can travel with to gain a more profound understanding of other cultures. Manheim Townhsip is a very rigorous school district that thrives academically, and is constantly challenging its pupils. The sports teams at Manheim Township are all extremely competitive, and perform very well. My favorite thing about Manheim Township are the school events such as friday night football games and homecoming. I love attending these events with my friends, and I always get excited to spend time with my class!
Great school! Teachers are very involved with the students as well within the school. Academics push you and make you work hard. Many different clubs and activities are involved for anyone and everyone. I believe the school accommodates everyone’s wants and desire. If there would be one thing that needs improved it would be the cafeteria food, but other than then it is a great place to be a student.
