Manhattan Center for Science & Mathematics Reviews

Overall my experience at this school was pretty great. The schools has some really amazing teachers that have a reputation amongst the students for being great teachers in their subjects. Many resources such as computer labs, the library, the college office and afterschool tutoring sessions are extremely useful and give students a place to go to when they need help. Many kids form groups of friends with eachother and mostly everyone is chill and no major fighting occurs. There are also a wide variety of clubs where anyone from freshman to seniors can join and be a part of. The best part of the experience for me was definitely hanging with friends and maintaining good relationships with the some of the best teachers ever!

My four years in Manhattan Center were amazing. I developed skills and experiences that I will forever carry with me and made friends for life. The environment is great and the teachers are friendly. It doesn't strongly focus on Science and Mathematics, but it has a variety of classes that a student can take. I would recommend this high school for any student looking for a fun, interactive, and cultivating academic experience for their next four years of study!
Manhattan Center for Science and Mathematics is a large school with 1,600 students. This allowed a spectrum of students to attend the school. Students with different backgrounds, races, financial statuses, religions, sexual orientation, interests and more allowed me to find my own clique in the school.

Manhattan Center also has some talented teachers with a drive to teach students. My physics teacher went to Cornell University and California Institute of Technology for undergrad and for research. Additionally, my English teacher did his best to help us all with the college process. However, not all of my teachers were great; some of my teachers did not care much if the students learned the material or not. Although there were negative aspects of the school, my overall experience was great. Manhattan Center is a great school if you use the school's resources as much as possible.
