Manchester Reviews

The public school which is actually an independent school is great. The teachers and the community are fantastic and understanding. However, night life and accommodations are lacking. There are many restaurants aimed towards tourists that have overpriced mediocre food. Lots of stores close early too so there really are limited options at night. There is only one true grocery store that is clean and somewhat decent. The town is located very close to three awesome ski mountains, though, that are all awesome in the winter.
