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!
Manchester Gate is a wonderful, well-rounded and welcoming school. The principal knows each child by name and is visible and actively involved on campus. The office staff is friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. My daughter's teacher radiates a love and excitement of learning! my daughter has never been this excited about school in her life! Thank you manchester gate for making my child love school again! You have been an answer to my prayers!
I am quite pleased with 'our' school. My son is in the 2nd grade and I enjoy variety of homework and classwork he does weekly. I have observed him during computer and science labs and those teachers are awesome. Mr. Painter, the pricipal, is very visible most of the time, which I love. My son's teacher is creative and well prepared. Thank you, Ms. Victoria Sumler
Manchester is an outstanding School with excellent leadership. Russ Painter has done a great job as Principal--instructional leader, coach, 'cheerleader', and encouragement to all the students and parents alike. FUSD should give more time and attention to the 'school culture' at Manchester and try to cultivate principles for renewing and improoving their other schools. They have a well rounded program that includes an excellent computor lab and website. They participate in Science Olympiad, Peach Blossom, all sports, chorus, band, orchestra, and many other extracurricular activities. Parent involvement, support, financial help, etc. is top notch! Although the school does begin with very high achieving students--they do an excellent jo of challanging and stretching these young people. For a GATE program--I would give Manchester and Mr. Painter A+!
Manchester GATE was one of the best things to happen to both of my children who attended there a few years ago. The staff is positive and responsive and they do a great job of working with families. It is a great place for children to develop positive relationships and a great place for families to become part of an educational community.
All children should be so fortunate to attend a school like Manchester GATE. The administration and staff are veteran, mostly master teachers trained to teach gifted and talented youth.
Manchester school staff are very dedicated to their students, and care about their personal and academic growth. The teaching is high quality and my children have been challenged to learn and grow.
The parents seem to be extremely involved in their children's education at this school. The class room sized are small enough for individualized attention and the teachers have decades of experience.
The academic curriculum at Manchester is outstanding,unlike any other I've been witness to. The creativity and imagination that Manchester shows it's children is so wonderful. I couldn't be more pleased with the quality of academic programs. There is little room for improvement. The school offers music, sports and arts. The Academics and parent involvement are definately what helps Manchester to stand out in the Central Valley. My two daughters have attended Manchester for 3 years.
Best school in Fresno Unified academically. Excellent if you are looking for a cross-cultural mix. Principal Russ Painter keeps the kids active with organized noon league sports and high participation on sports teams. District financial troubles have resulted in programmatic cuts.
Our daughter is a 5th grader @ Manchester. We love this school. She gets the challenge she needs and has been exposed to so many wonderful things that she never would have experienced at another school. The principle is great, he is at just about every school function, he directs traffic and he knows all the kids by name. The parents at this school are the greatest, when there is something to be done, the parents are there, ready to man a booth at the fall carnival, chaperone trips, help in class, unload trucks of cookie dough, you name it they'll do it. It's a dream school come true.
I'm not a parent, but a graduate of this amazing school. I'm currently attending CSUF on a four year scholarship through an honors program! I believe the headstart I was given by attending this school allowed me to succeed in school, graduating magna cum laude from Edison high school. Any parent who wonders what good can come from attending Machester need only to look at my success. Thank you Manchester GATE for pushing me to my full potential and for teaching me that anything I can dream of is possible.
we have been so extremely happy for several years now. our daughter started in second grade and is now in fifth. no problems,no complaints. ever any questions...everyone on staff is always so kind and willing to help. we now have another daughter who just started second grade and i think we are even more thrilled now. both of our daughters are getting the best education they possibly could in california. god bless manchester gate and all that that implies.....thank you from two very grateful parents
