I liked going to high school at Manteo. The teachers and staff were always friendly and people you could go to if you needed any help or advice without feeling judged. It was easy to make friends here since the school is so small, everyone knows everyone. We had a large variety of clubs and organizations for everybody. Our sports teams were very diversified and reasonably good. The only two negative things I could say about this school is the amount of homework assigned was CRAZY and the food was awful. I felt like I never got a break with homework. But I guess this was reasonable in the long run to prepare us for college. The food on the other hand was just terrible. It was either pizza or chicken and neither was good. By the time I got to lunch, since I had the last lunch out of three, there was barely any food left so I had to eat what no one else wanted.

I am currently a Junior at Manteo High School. It's my first year at this school, and coming from an outsider, it's not hard to fit in. There are many students that help in your transition and they are very welcoming. The staff is very helpful in your transition to a new school, and help you in anyway they can. Academically, the school prepares you for major tests such as the ACT and PSAT. There is a diverse community of students, and it creates an acceptance of others. Teachers teach more than the required curriculum, they prepare you for life experiences that you typically wouldn't know how to handle.
Average, small school with decent resources. Most teachers generally want to see you succeed. Some of the administration should be replaced with newer-aged people who realize that we are no longer living in the 1950's.
