Manitou Springs High School
131 Best Public High Schools in Colorado
- Manitou Springs School District, CO
Alum: When I was at Manitou all of the athletic programs were top notch and very successful at the State Championship level. Everyone please keep in mind that MSHS is only a 3A school, by that I mean it is a small school. I believe there were around 500 students enrolled when I attended this school. Since it is so small resources tend to limited but the teachers and administration seem to do the absolute best they can with what they have.

Senior: Roanoke Catholic is a school that teaches students belong the classroom and prepares them for either college. In the past years, 100 percent of Catholic seniors have attended college and this year the seniors have received over 2.5 million in scholarships. I started Roanoke Catholic two years ago and it was a big change coming from public school. In public schools you could slide by without doing your homework, but at Roanoke Catholic all work is required and graded as a test grade. Roanoke Catholic does not let you fall through the cracks. I also must say the food is outstanding!!
One thing I really did not like were the uniforms. In public school you basically wore what you want, but not in private school. My first year the gentlemen had to wear a shirt and tie during the winter and in the summer a polo shirt with the school’s logo and khaki pants or shorts. This year they changed the dress code to where gentlemen could wear the polo shirt and khaki pants all year around.
