Manitou Springs School District Reviews
Manitou Springs High School is a small school, no more than 500 students total. Small schools are great, you know everyone there and you don't get lost in the vast hallways. The downside, however, to small schools is they don't have a whole lot of money. The school is small, the facilities are mediocre, and it's always impossible to find a parking spot. The Student Council does a lot to give the students fun school activities, but there's only so much they can do. The school itself is pretty boring, but the students have their own culture, and it's much more united than a large 5,000 student high school. Manitou may be small and underwhelming, but if you take a week and get to know the students, it's so much more interesting than any large high school out there.
Manitou is an open and inviting district that teaches tolerance at a young age. Students are encouraged to interact with each other despite differences, and the staff is no different. No once have I had any difficulty with my peers or the staff!
Manitou is a healthy learning environment for all the fundamental needs of a student. that being said, students need to be readily aware that many extra hours of specific work towards further education is needed. The ideals held by admin and staff are superb learning tools but effort and time outside of school are most likely needed to prep for further education.
