This is one of the worst schools I have ever been to because it's really underfunded (most of the textbooks and lockers are falling apart) some of the teachers are mean, and many of the students there are very mean (on my first day there, they talked smack behind my back and sometimes called me names) .

I'm currently a Senior at MHS and I love this school. Yes, there isn't too much spirit in my class, but that's in the hands of the students and that doesn't determine what kind of education this school gives. What I love most about MHS is the diversity. There so many people with so many backgrounds, culture, race that is actually celebrated at this high school. The teachers so far are fabulous. Of course, like every other school there are the terrible ones and the great ones. I have been lucky to end my last year with the best teachers on campus! ( in my opinion). I would recommend this school for students who like diversity, and culture.

I'm currently a Junior at MHS and it is miserable. Most teachers rush through the content and don't make sure everyone is comprehending each lesson. Also the students that go here just don't care. There is NO school spirit or anything fun to do. Everyone is either weird or boring. Plus the school is freaking old and has NO money. In one of my classes we don't even have books and the books they give us are either falling apart or close too. Don't even get me started on sports the only thing MHS cares about is Football, they get so many funding clubs and stuff while the other sports are forgotten about. The food is horrible an they worry about the stupidest things. I can't wait to graduate.

My experience at Manteca High was that you could learn and do well there if you wanted to, but you didn't have to learn to get by, or even to do well. The teachers were very good and care about the students. There are plenty of clubs and organizations for after-school activities as well. I did not personally have very good experiences with the school leadership. I was very disappointed in several of their decisions.

I like MHS! We had a rough 1st year but, that's typical teenage stuff. Communication with the teachers was excellent! They all gave out their email addresses and were quick to answer any questions we had. The principal is great & wants to keep making possitive improvements. It would be nice to see MORE PARENT INVOLVEMENT! The ones that complain don't want to put forth the effort to get involved! Manteca has my vote!!!

Honestly, I could say, attending Manteca High was the worst experience in my life. I hated it. The teachers and staff do care, but most of the students do not. Alot of fights happen at MHS, as a student that went there in 2007-2009 i dont recommend students going there. but everyone has there right to their oppinion.

Great kids at the school. Teachers are very helpful and obviously want to help the kids achieve goals. School needs funds to help kids reach goals and with further programs.

My son is now a Sophomore at Manteca High, and I have to say I am very impressed with his experiences there so far. He plays football, is in Honors classes and is part of the medical program that started when he was a Freshman. The coaches and the teachers do grade checks before game day to make sure the players are keeping their grades up, and I really appreciate their diligence. I recently had a conference with the medical program counselor, and what they have to offer at Manteca High is a college level education. I am very pleased that he has had the opportunity to attend such a fantastic school. I look forward to my younger son and my daughter attending Manteca High.

Manteca High is deff. the best school out here in Manteca. I just graduated from here in 2008. i attended this school all four years and had a great experience with everyone including the teachers they were really great. i also did the mural project was probably one of the funnest things i did throughout the whole time i was there. i wish i could go back again as a student. But since i cant i still go back as a teacher and teach the students and let them know what a great school manteca high is we show our pride and spirit more than any other schools i would reccomend this school for those high schoolers. 5 Stars! MHS Class of 2008!

i'm a parent of a sophomore student, i fell that my child has grown so much in the last year, this is in part to his involvement in the schools JROTC program. My son now works hard on his academics because he feels he needs to keep up to stay involved. i am truly grateful to all the staff members and students who helped my adjust to his new life.

This is our first year in manteca and we couldnt have picked a better school. Teachers and administration are not just friendly, they actually care. My daughter has really learned a lot this year, thanks to Mr. Obrigowitch, Mr. Burr, Mrs. Noonkester, and Dr. Taylor She will be takin A.P. classes in her junior year.

This school is one of the worst in the area. They don't apply the rules and policies to everyone. The staff isn't very concerned with what's going on with the students. As a parent, they are very poor in keeping me informed with what's going on with my child good or bad. They make decisions based on how they feel that day. Just because you have a degree in education and child psychology doesn't necessarily mean that you know what you're doing, and the teachers and staff at Manteca High are clear examples of this. The counselors are ok.

Teachers are great, campus is historical, we have character, and we have good work ethics.

Being a current student at manteca high, i honestly think it is an outstanding school for students to attend. Being involved in not only my regular school schedule Im also involved in 6 different clubs and also in the choir concert coming up and the school play ' lil abner'. The teachers are awesome. Never been to a school where teachers actually cared and want to help students. Art programs are the top ratings, having 116+ murals all around campus made my students its breath taking. I out of all would recommend this school.

I truly saw organization for the incoming freshmen. The teachers are well versed and Mr. Erckle is awesome. My son has met with him and he is understanding and very helpful even with the overload of students.

The academic programs that they offer are ok. Not as extensive as I would like. Foreign languages are French and Spanish would like more. Extra activities are a plus. Many for the children to get involved with. Staff is very supportive. I am not to familiar with parent involvement but the teachers will spend the extra time with children to ensure proper learning. There are many programs to assist the kids that are struggling as well.

Having been a former student of this school I can honestly say that this is the worst school I could have possibly gone to. Yes, I thought with pride the test scores said everything, how wrong could I be. Going to college and progressing to own my own business I have met many people who now have kids and went to schools that met with the requirements of being a California Distinguished School. I also found that the counselors (and speaking with people from town) are still the most inept counselors that could ever be employed. As I do hope to have children someday I can honestly say that I will NEVER put my children in this school!

My family has recently moved out of Manteca after living there for 12 years. My daughter briefly attended Manteca High School beginning her freshman year. I pulled her out because of the lack of academic level, school communication, and teacher respect for the students. I would not recommend this school until it changes some of its policies and actually starts listening to parents.
