Manheim Township High School Reviews

I had a wonderful experience at Mannheim Township. I found the staff and other students for the most part to be caring and supportive. If students attending this high school had any desire to achieve academic and social success, Mannheim Township made it possible. I was also extremely prepared by this high school for college which not many of my college classmates can say. It was always sad; however, to see kids slip through the cracks each year. Mannheim Township could work on bettering its one on one relationships and instilling drive and initiative in those students to ensure the success of as many kids as possible, not just the ones who want it from the beginning.
Review Manheim Township High School
There is a handful of teachers who grade assignments in a timely manner, grade fairly, treat the students with respect, and follow through with a curriculum that allows students to reach their full potential, there are some who don't. Some teachers will mix together several units and lessons that confuse students, take weeks to grade assignments, or even not effectively prepare their students for large tests such as midterms or finals. Nevertheless, it is stil worth it to attend one of the top schools in the area.
I am in between whether I would come back and redo all the 4 years again. It's not only the teachers its the other students as well that can make the student experience on the positive side or the negative side. The school is unique because I believe it doesn't lack any resources a student would need to complete projects or assignments. The technology is up to date and the library has new books coming in all the time and volumes that are easily accessible for research purposes. The school is larger than most and it has a lot of options for students when it comes to the arts or english, any class you could think of including guitar lab, and english speech club, just many options that help students build up an idea of what career they would like to do in the future.
