Manila Reviews

2 reviews
I have been a resident of Manila for 26 years. Manila proved to be a safe area for me to raise my daughters and gave me the comfort of a small town reminiscent of my own school years. The positives always come with some negatives, unfortunately. Like any small town there is an abundance of gossip and people getting in one's business. Additionally, the school showed favoritism to students with certain surnames. Overall, Manila is a quiet farm town in the Mississippi Delta that is really a great place to raise a family.

I was born and raised in Manila! I love the school system they have. If you have kids, this is the town to raise them in! There are great neighborhoods and they can get a great education.
