My son attended Manual for 2 years, and that was enough. The school is not terrible, but there is an attitude among the teachers that since this is a ghetto school they should be able to do whatever they want. There is no leadership from the administration and teachers run their classes however they see fit. Mr. Channel, who is mentioned elsewhere here, has a rule that if a student is absent even one day, with or without an excuse, they fail the course. My son was sick one day (with a doctors note!) and failed the class, even though he had all A's. Channel also designates certain pretty girls to be his "helper teachers", and these students get special privileges. Other teachers do much the same, favoring some students, enforcing bizarre rules, etc. We went as far as the school board to protest this, but the attitude seems to be "well , those teachers work in a tough school so we let them alone". At least we didn't have to worry about "teaching to the test". Nobody in this school seems worried about how their students do, long term or short term. I come from a family of educators and I have never experienced a school like this.

Although I am not 100% on board with the structural changes taking place at Manual Arts, I have met the principal at a community function and he seems to be making a serious commitment to this school which I applaud.

i am currently a freshman at mahs nd its is a good school the staff isnt topnotch but if you do fond a good teacher it will help you. i am in NAI (USC Neighborhood Academic Initiative) and i feel it is really helping me get through all dillemas at school because it helps me to achieve higher.

Well, I'm a current sophmore/junior at Manual Arts High School. The reason that I am in between is because I'm trying to graduate early, not because I hate Manual Arts, but because I know I will enjoy college more. Anyways, thanks to the staff, especially Mr. Keith, my dream of going to NYU seems really possible. The staff in general is horrible and relucant to help but when you find a good teacher, man what a teacher. If you want your kid to go to Manual Arts, put him/her in these programs, first of all A track, Magnet Program, and AOF (Academy of Finance).

I attended Manual arts high school for four years of my life from 2005-2009 and they were the greatest years ever! My first two years i did feel cheated from my education, but after my first two years i entered a track with the magnet program and the academy of finance!!! the best programs in the whole school, but out of all of this i believe that the Academic Decathlon team is what truly got me ready for college! you studied college level reading and writing Mr. Channel is one of the best teachers in the whole school and does not kid around he is a serious professor. As for the Academy of Finance the same can be said you take accounting with Mr. Andereck. Not the best school but it is an awesome choice for experience!!!

this school is decent. Its my second year here and my experience have been great. The best advice would be to joing the magnet program or come into manual throught the NAI program,( an excellent program).Manual's academy of finance is amazing as well. If you want to learn about chemistry and biology i would suggest you take Mr. Channel's class; he makes his class college-level. He also coaches the academic decathlon team which so far is doing alright. Overall you decide whether your experience here is at a desirable level.

I attended Manual Arts from 2003 till 2007. I did end up going to a college, a UC, but once I got to college and saw my competition, I knew right away that I was in trouble. There are some good programs within the school, like Academy of Finance, Magnet Program, AP courses, and a couple more programs. The problem with the school is the lack of effort that many teachers have when it comes to teaching. Out of the four years that I was there I had only three classes that challenged me, they weren't rigorous, but they did make me work for what I earned. All I have to say this is an decent choice for a school, but there are better schools students can attend. The staff didn't really respect us, they treated us all like children, even making the average student feel dumber than they actually were.

I am a senior at Manual Arts H.S. Magnet program. In the fall I will be attending USC. All through my 4 years in this school i felt cheated... teachers are fairly easy and academics are a joke. There are some good programs that some schools do not have. If you attend, make sure that you enroll in the magnet, be part of as many extr. curriculum activities as possible. You will not receive a quality education so it is better if your prepare yourself.

I was a student at Manual Arts, right now I'm in UC Berkeley. To be sincere Manual just has like 15 good teachers in the whole school. There are many Extrac. Activ. But they don't let the students know about them, if you care you have to look for them. Academic programs? AP classes, out of all the AP classes I took, just 3 of them made me work, the rest of them were another break for me. It's just crazy! and parents? It is really hard to see somebody who cares!

This school had a few sport teams, and after-school programs. But for P.E. classes they were always about exercise or running around the track. They did not have special programs in place for P.E. ie. ballet, dancing, etc. They did have afterschool programs, and there was good security in the school. The science classes were normal classes, they did not seem to be advanced classes. They did have a program were they would prepare the students for college.

Posted August 25, 2005

The teachers do not show much participation in making sure that the students receive the education that they deserve and the safety is non existent with many students getting into fights or pressured to do things that they would not normaly do. I haven't heard much from the principal regarding securing the safety of the students or assuring that they receive the best possible education, this just seems like the dumping ground for those kids with no goals and there are no motivation from the school staff to get these kids to become goal oriented.

This School is in a very bad neighborhood and it's tough on the kids. The teachers don't try hard enough to motivate the students to do their best.

Manual Arts is pre-judged as a 'ghetto' school with low test scoring students, but it is not. Overall the students are challenges and achieve their goals, by getting accepted to the best colleges, we have a variety of academic programs to choose from and we are one of the best known schools in our district for our competitive clubs or teams including but not limited to basketball, soccer, volleyball, academic decathlon and academy of finance.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.

The Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) School Experience Survey asks parents, students and employees about their school's learning environment. Results provide insight into school climate, such as whether the school is academically rigorous, engaging, safe, and collaborative. Learn more

We organized questions from the LAUSD School Experience Survey into five categories. The respondent group-level results (parents, students, and school employees) show the percent of each respondent group that agree or strongly agree that the school has positive results for that category.

Overall school results for each category are calculated by averaging across group-level results, ensuring that each respondent group is equally represented. Alongside the results for each school are the aggregated results across all LAUSD schools, which are provided as a basis for comparisons.
