I attended Manheim Township ever since kindergarten and I graduated from there. During my time there as a student, I would always say I hated it but honestly after graduating, I feel so honored and blessed to have been able to attend Manheim Township. I feel as though I got an amazing education and could always seek help when and if it was needed! The teachers are excellent and the environment is excellent as well.

I loved the activities and teachers at Manheim Township. I just graduated this month in June 2020. I was part of the music and performing arts department, and video production, which was a fun experience. The teachers really care about their students and love to teach. I wasn't in sports, but many of our teams made it to championships including the football and basketball team. One thing I would change about the school is that it needs a little more Diversity.
I had a great experience at Manheim Township High School. There were so many opportunities and ways to get involved as a student, which is something that is super important to me. They offered rigorous courses and allowed me to obtain a great education to help me get ready for my college experience. Overall, I believe that I benefited greatly from attending this high school and definitely learned a lot of valuable
information over the years.
