Manor Hill Elementary School3

Since the new Principal started in 2007 the school is leaving parents, as partners for improving the school, out. Most teachers are great, but there are few who have problem controling their anger and big ego (bad attitude, harrasing students, "funny remarks" etc.). Big words, small actions- great potential, incompetent leadership.
My kids have been very happy at Manor Hill. The teachers care about the kids and it shows. The staff has always been very responsive and the community of parents have been supportive of the school and its activities.
i am totally disgusted with this school! They focus on and cater to the wealthy while targeting and ostrisize the middle and low income families as below everyone else. The principal is very ignorant when it comes to dealing with real, serious problems. The teachers can't do their jobs, while having one or more parent volunteers per class, they still openly admit that they can't handle classes of 20 or less! The formats for teaching our children leaves soooo much to be desired! Definitely re-think any ideas of sending your children here!
Manor Hill is a great school and I love the way teachers handles each and every child to help them achieve good grades and become an independent thinker. I am very impressed with the overall administration.
I think that Manor Hill School shows kids how to become leaders when they grow up. The students make a lot of friends and i bet they all have fun! Music- They have a lovely Music Teacher who teaches all different type of things. P.E.- They are always active Art- They do very creative projects There are very excellent teachers and they always are organized and on time. The PTA ( Parent Teacher Association)gets excellent shows for the kids to watch. I love this School.
I am very happy with this school. The principal is very active in the day to day activities of the school, and it seems as though she knows almost every student by name. They are very pro-active in recognizing areas where a student may need extra help and provide appropriate help where needed.
Our daughter has done very well at Manor Hill. I feel the staff is highly qualified, and has given our child a great education. Additionally, the staff has gone beyond the call of duty and has truly inspired our child to learn. 'They have made learning fun!' -Cassidy, age ten.
