Manalapan High School Reviews

I am privileged of spending my high school career here. All the resources needed were provided. The school's evidently clean and safe. Most notably, the unique teachers, eccentric Milboer, energetic Dowe, wise Dempsey, goofy Berger, and sassy Pepper, were united under genuine care for their students. These teachers have given me extra time, encouraged me to believe in my capabilities, challenge myself, allowed me to correct mistakes, given me feedback, compliments, and even offered relationship advice.
My only complaint is the evident decline in school spirit, which is largely a result of administration erasing of our freedom. Recently, our senior quotes were taken away, and we desperately want them back!

So far, I have really enjoyed my time at Manalapan High School! The teachers are always there for students whether it is helping advise or a club or staying after school to review a lesson. Most are also very approachable and I will always appreciate their help and support. The student body is very passionate about academics, athletics, and other activities that they participate in. However, like every other school, there are cons. To be honest, the block scheduling is still very confusing and inefficient to me. Most teachers and students still haven't fully adapted to it. Another negative aspect is that the lack of air conditioning makes classes unbearable in the beginning and ends of the year. Nonetheless, I had a great experience so far and I can't wait to spend my last year here! As long as you put effort into your studies and school life, you will enjoy your high school experience.
I enjoyed my experience at Manalapan High School. My teachers for the most part were great, and I took classes such as AP Micro/Macro Economics, which sparked my interest in a new field. MHS helped me find direction by encouraging me explore my academic interests, by taking several economic, statistic, and math courses throughout my four years. I also have had the opportunity to make life long friends and teammates through joining the tennis and track and field teams. Although not every moment at MHS was amazing, the overall experience was. In addition to the amazing athletics, Manalapan has a myriad of clubs and other extracurriculars for everyone to find their niche. Manalapan sets students up for their future endeavors, by helping each student find their individual interests and passions.
