I absolutely loved going to high school here! I felt like everyone belonged and was very involved in all activities. I felt comfortable and encouraged with all of my teachers. I also thought for any student they provide help and assistance as well as classes to continue your education such as AP classes and being able to take classes at HACC while in high school!

I spent all of high school at Manheim Township. Overall, my experience was good. We have a wide variety of programs for all sorts of students. Our athletics are excellent, as we have won many state and district titles and a number of sports. Our after school and extracurricular offerings are great, and have a true impact on the community. Teachers care about their students and want to help them succeed.
This is a competitive school. I moved from Warwick and in comparison MTHS has a harder curriculum, but they also seem very focused on standardized tests. There are entitled people that go here that think their better then you because if they mom or dad. But overall I would recommend for kids who already excel in school, or who have good work ethic, otherwise it’s a hard school to go to.
