Manhattan High School Reviews
I think that I enjoyed how welcoming the faculty were to new students during my time at the high school. However, one way to improve on this is to incorporate more organizations for students with different interests as to show how the school is open to multiple extracurricular activities. Also, perhaps emphasizing courses or programs that can assist students in how to complete certain things such as filling out proper tax information, managing a budget or other activities they will need to do in the future. Other than this I found my experience there to be very worth wile in helping me academically to grow as I prepared to enter college.
I like how the teachers want you to learn. They actually do their job and make fun learning by making you participate in your learning and pushing you out of your comfort zone to make you a better person and a better learner. On top of the school itself, the extracurricular activities are amazing. They have so many different clubs and sports and after school program. There is something for everyone to do, including everyone from age and gender. My experience at MHS has so far been really good, I've gotten great grades, I participate and multiple sports and attend a wide range of classes. The students at MHS are just as good as the teachers, they are loving and open to everyone. The students also take pride in our school which can be seen at every sporting event we have.
Manhattan High School is, for the most part, a wonderful school with a mostly wonderful staff. However, there are a few things I think could be changed in order to make it better. For one, many of the hardest working, smartest, studious people are not recognized. They love to congratulate and acknowledge the athletes but the quiet, intelligent, students do not receive the same praise. For another, some of the teachers are only teachers for the sole purpose of being a coach. They give endless chances and unearned grades to their athletes; and they don’t focus on teaching/the lesson plans.
