I like how involved community members are with the community. We have a great student body and a lot of fans that support what we do. Also Manhattan offers a variety of extra-curricular activities. Including BPA (Business), NHS (Honors Society), SkillsUSA (Labor/Workforce), Academic Olympics, and Science Olympiad. Every student at Manhattan is given equal opportunity to participate in these activities. I would love for Manhattan to have an FFA club (Farming), especially with how overlapping our school is with agriculture. Manhattan is a great small school to learn discipline, scheduling, and all the basic tools that will prepare you for college.

My experience with Manhattan has been very good. This school is growing rapidly, but every year I have been here it is a super comfortable to be here. The school is small enough to have the whole school do little activities and big enough to play sports which has been the best experience for me. What I would like to see this school change is more room for kids in the halls. Because we have a small school and more kids are coming, we need more room to move around to class to class. That would be nice to see.
When I think about Manhattan High School, I feel a mix of emotions run through me. On the positive side, Manhattan has knowledgeable teachers, there is typically a place for every student to fit in amongst the student body, and those on the school board make sure to support not only sports but also the arts. Manhattan was on the news in 2015 for having "Montana's Most Dangerous Pepband" and every year a talent show is held at Manhattan. Not only is music promoted, but the Speech and Drama club feels encouraged by the school as well. On the negative side, bullying often occurs at Manhattan and since it is a class "b" school, it is not easy to get away from this issue. Despite this, I have enjoyed Manhattan overall and would recommend going there.
