After experiencing my first year at Dupont Manual, I can gladly say I had an invigorating experience and I am definitely excited to be returning. The teachers, the staff, and the students all make the place that we can proudly call Dupont Manual High School. We all show our school spirit and show out in our red, white, and black. We prove ourselves academically to be the best by participating in state and national competitions and even win them! We make up the three pillars of Manual: diversity, tradition, and excellence. I can proudly say that this school has nothing to change. We are all who we want to be here and make the best of it and flaunt ourselves. Everyone here supports each other to the best of their ability, no matter how we look or how we act. I can confirm that we are all in this together, no matter what. Overall, my school has about everything a school should have and I'm so glad to be apart of the family.

DuPont Manual High School has been an incredible experience throughout my four years attending here. Most of the teachers are incredibly cool people that make me willing to learn. The magnet program is also incredible and creates a very unique culture within the school environment. You feel very connected and integrated with your magnet and interaction between magnets is always interesting. I am in the visual arts magnet and I cannot express properly just how much I appreciate it. I have learned so much in this magnet and met so many people that are now my friends, along with the teachers. The only thing I'd like to be changed is an increase in food quality, as it is often not very good. Other than that, everything else about Manual I enjoy very much!
Manual is a great school! They have a very friendly, inclusive atmosphere. They focus on excellence, diversity and tradition. The academics are excellent and they have prepared me well for college. It is a diverse school that is open to all people. All in all, I highly recommend you go here, it's the best school in the state!
