I am the parent of a child that has attended Manchester Gate for 4 years. It has been an amazing educational experience. The teachers are phenomenal and the administration is incredible--great leadership. Both teachers and administration care about the success of each student. Some extra benefits that make this school one of the best: the school's population is culturally diverse; there is a terrific noon-league sports program open to all students that wish to participate; there is a strong music program (concert and jazz band, orchestra, chorus), competitive sports programs, etc. This school is safe, welcoming, and always doing the right thing for the students and their families. I am proud to be a Manchester Gate family.
Manchester is simply amazing. Not only does it provide an academically challenging curriculum, it promotes critical thinking as well, while making students feel like they are human, and important. Best of all, the bright and interesting children at this school love every moment of their education. The teachers have brilliantly pulled the wool over their students eyes, and made learning fun and engaging. My only regret about sending my daughter to this school is that I didn't send her sooner.
Our daughter has gone to Manchester GATE since 3rd Grade. This school has great funding support and is able to offer the students many field trips, a staffed computer & science labs as well as other enrichment activities. The principal is a positive force and many of the teachers at Manchester are fantastic!
I love this school for my son! He's been in since 2nd grade and will be a 6th grader this year. Teachers are so dedicated and creative. Parents are supportive. Mr. Painter is so involved with every program and is so visible at events. He knows all the kids by name and they love him!
The school is great kids are awesome and the staff is wonderful. My child attended this school 5-6th grade and so far this year we have had a an awesome Teacher but 5th grade was horrilbe my motherly instinct told me there was something wrong with a certain teacher and now due to the fact that I didn't follow my instinct my daughter was affected and therefore did not get into edison computech. She went from a 4.0 to a 1.2 Mrs. Alethea Traskin is horrible horrible teacher.. I'm sorry to say she does not belong at Manchester Gate...
This is an amazing school with an excellent principal, teachers, and staff. Every kid who goes there never wants to leave Manchester.
I love this school. I love the teachers. I love the principal and vice principal. This is, by far, the best school in Fresno.
I'm not sure what else I can add to these wonderful reviews of Manchester GATE. It really is all that! Great school, great teachers, great students and great principal...he really sets the tone for the school and he does a fantastic job.
As a grandparent of a Manchester, I have been impressed with the variety of enriching activities offered to the students. I do, however, feel that the extremely outdated bungalows need to be removed from campus, and replaced with rooms with higher ceilings and more light. The principal is a welcoming presence on campus, and knows all the students by name. I highly recommend this school.
Gifted and Talented Education is an understatement for this wonderful school. I will never forget how friendly the school enviornment was when I entered Manchester four years ago. The teachers are very thoughtful and amazingly bright. If I wouldn't have gone to Manchester, I wouldn't be so inspired to get a good education and be successful. Because of everything that this school has to offer, I am on track to being a freshman at University High School. Thank you, Mr. Painter for being so supportive of your students. It really makes a difference. -Submitted by a student
Great School, teachers and staff are the best. Wonderful curriculum for the gifted and talented learner. My child is so much happier than at the home school.
This is such a great school!! I didn't realize how bad my other sons school was until he started going to Manchester last year. They do lots of field trips and fun hands on projects at this school. The teachers are great! The principal is awesome too. He is always walking around and talking to people. There is a lot of parent involvement which I like too. They have a couple plays a year, music, computers, science night, pinewood derby races..just to name a few. My son is SO lucky he can go to this school. I am thankful.
This school is great for students who want to be challenged and have the time of your life while learning every day. Its awesome and fun!
As the parent of a 6th grader, I will always be thankful my daughter was able to go to Manchester for the last 4 years. I wish all elementary schools had the kind of outstanding admin staff & teachers this school does. Parent involvement has also been tops. Academically a wonderful place to learn--and the music program was great! I will be sad to leave the school, but if your child has been invited to attend---you will be SO happy you did!
I am very pleased with Manchester Gate. As a parent of a student at Manchester for the past 2 years I am proud of what this school stands for... excellence! The parent involvement is great as well!
Manchester Gate is a terrific school all around. The faculty and Principal are outstanding. They offer excellent academic programs, superb extracurricular activities, and the best ever sports program - led by Principal Painter. I was very impressed with the high level of parent involvement. They also shared the school spirit along with the students. My son had the pleasure of attending Manchester 3rd thru 6th grade. During his time there, he had the best teachers that left a lasting impression on him to this day. Thank you, Manchester, for giving my son the knowledge and experience of a lifetime! I highly recommend this school for all your (gifted and talented) child's needs!
Go Manchester Gators! Thank you to all of the teachers and Mr. Painter for all of the support you have given my daughter the last two years! RR
This has been the best learning experience for our daughter. I would highly recommend this school to anyone lucky enough to be invited to attend!
