DuPont Manual High School Reviews

I meant the most amazing people at this school! It was amazing to be around students who were so well behaved and motivated. A good chunk of the teachers do belong at Manual, but there is quite a bit that should leave. Although we have the title of the best school in Kentucky, there were many problems at the school. I have experienced first-hand racism from some students and teachers because of the magnet I was in and the low diversity in said magnet. Overall, it's a good school with tons of school spirit. Go Crimsons!

Manual's status is definitely well-deserved. The students are extremely dedicated, and nearly all college bound. The school's culture is competitive, but everyone is very open-minded and accepting of all students. However, the resources the school has are subpar for the amazing work that happens within those walls. Many classrooms only have chalkboards and have paint peeling off the walls, old desks, and old furniture. The students and faculty deserve much better. Despite these challenges though, the student body has still done some amazing things! I would recommend that anyone come to Manual and promise they will come out a more educated and more accepting person.
My high school is absolutely amazing! Our school is full of diversity, in appearance AND thought! It is a very competitive environment but that only fuels more hard work and determination. The teachers are very knowledgeable. The school spirit is out of this world! However, the administration can be a little sketchy sometimes, they have come under fire recently.
