Manual has great students and staff, but the staff haven't guided the students abilities. I agree that it is powerful, but it needs alot of cleanup.
This school is very powerful. Often tim epepole say ' You go to Manual' in a negitive way. Its not about where you come form, its where youre going. Manual has a 94% of (2009) seniors that headed to collage. Its good to be a Ram (IGTBAR)! Go Rams!
As a student I try to attend Manual everyday. We have okay teachers, and the staff is alright. The students are very smart but some are lazy,and have great talents but do not know how to harnest their talents in a postive way. They need positive energy to do positive things but all they have is negative energy so they turn to negative things. This school is very fun and bully free! This school is the kind of school where everyone usually gets along with one another not that we don't have fights because sometimes we do but what school doesn't have a brawl ever now and then.
All though manual high doesn't have all the fancy high test scores, they really provide a solid education. They teach about the real world and the teachers relate topics so the students get it. I used to attend richwoods high school and the staff and student body were so full of themselves it hurt. the teachers there could care less about you and everyone there really is snoody. at manual you'll find no such thing, everyone is nice and says hello and the students have lives and aren't stressed out all of the time, they have street smarts and know how to talk to people. maybe if manual was given money by the district or maybe richwoods might actually share. do not pay attention to manual's bad rep, it teaches you a good curriculum but more importantly gives you a realistic education. Give manual a chance people.
