I loved the school spirit, and the club opportunities! However I wish our administration had more of a backbone when it came to punishments. I also wish they didn't favor athletes over everyone else.

Overall, I thought Manhattan High School was an excellent school based on my years there. The academics are very prestigious and almost always lead to positive results in the students. The teachers and staff are friendly and for the most part have the students in mind when teaching. In many classes, the teachers would actually sculpt their teaching style to student preferences(group activities or individual work), which I though was very accommodating. They do however have a tendency to run out of food in the cafeteria during the second lunch period but I have read that this concern is being addressed. Other than this, good things always come to mind when I talk about MHS. Definitely highly recommended by a former student.
I had supportive and helpful teachers! And almost everyone is super friendly and nice. I really enjoyed my time there. I wish there could be more education on how the environment is important, though.
