We had multiple children come through MTHS, and although each experience was a bit different, all were excellent. MTHS has top notch academics, but also support for students that need the help. Multiple AP classes and IB offered. Flexible with curriculum and even offer cyber classes. Many extracurricular activities. Teaches accessible and care about their students and their futures. 5 star experience all around.

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.
Overall, it is a very good high school that prepares students for college. It has above average facilities in most respects, including a diverse lunch menu and very clean bathrooms, etc. Most of the teachers have graduated from their colleges with honors, so they are mostly very good at their jobs.
