Manchester Township High School Reviews

I like the majority of teachers at my school. There are many excellent teachers that helped guide me through high school. However, there are some things that I would like to change. I feel that my school limits creativity of it's students. Our school has removed senior quotes in the yearbook, does not allow students to paint parking spaces, and has very few spirit days. I also am a member of the gymnastics team at Manchester. Unfortunately, we do not have our own equipment and do not get much recognition. I feel that our top scores should be hung on the wall like all of the other sports. Although I do feel that Manchester Township High School is a good school, there are changes that could be made.

Manchester Twp High School is a friendly, safe environment that provided me with the sound education that granted me access to the medical program I am currently enrolled in. I recently was granted admission to Stockton's Pre-Med Program. My AP credits grained from this high school and the lessons I learned in their many extracurricular activities; Marching Band, NJROTC, and Golf. I loved my time at Manchester and gladly would do it all over again.
Through the 4 years, Manchester was a decent experience. From the field to in the classroom I have made a bunch of memories. With that being said, many things could be changed, starting with the way students are behaving because I believe students get away with a lot of things they should not. through the years, many things have been changed or taken away from what administration thinks is inappropriate but to the students it took away a lot of fun and it really had no harm, like senior blackout. Overall for a student athlete this school has given me a lot of happiness and It is not how everyone says it is, it is fun and enjoyable when you actually see the good, not dwell on the bad like teens tend to do.
