An updated, clean, and bright school that made my high school years wonderful. They have a JROTC program with great instructors and the the administration makes sure that the teachers are always satisfied so that they can have a great time teaching the students. Many of the teachers here are approachable and are very friendly plus the environment is very bright and friendly here too. The school is located in an areas about a mile away from all of the noise on the Main Street so learning comes to be peaceful. This is a school I would definitely recommend to everyone.

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 has honestly been a wonderful High School experience for me, it has made me stay on track with my academics and club activities. They have counselors that walk you through the college process and makes sure you have everything you need. Another great quality of the school is the school spirit of the students and teachers.
