I would like to say that even though I have had a decent time at Manley, there could be some improvements. I would like it if there were more teachers, and better quality books available. My freshman year was actually a ton of fun because of the students, the atmosphere, and even more importantly the teaching quality. It seems as if the years went by teachers wouldn't care how you turned in your work. My sophomore year was somewhat reasonable with education, but I barely received homework and it seemed as if people passed just to pass. My junior year was terrible because of the fact the teachers didn't know how to prepare us. I took a AP class that year and the teacher just told us that we probably won't pass, but I maintained my grades and pushed through everything. My senior year so far has been alright the teachers seem to care more. I feel as if the principal tries but as a whole with the students and teachers I feel that we can be a successful school.

I'm a former student from manley, and one thing that I liked about Manley while I was their were the teachers. Some teachers aren't just there for a check they actually want to see you learn. I just had to through that out there. Ms.Jessup, Mr.Gamble, and Serg.Magor were my favorite teachers while I was a student their. They taught me things from being a student and gave me personal advice about life and help me through difficult times and they're just AWESOME!.
In Manley i liked the way teachers took their time to make sure you understand what is going on. I also like the basketball team we went to the state playoffs and we tried our best but we lost but we had fun and the teammates were great.
