I have two kids that are currently enrolled in Manning and I could not be happier. The teachers are amazing, the curriculum is challenging without being overly stressful for the kids. The teachers are extremely receptive to any and all concerns and respond immediately to anything that needs to be addressed. We are in the process of selling our house and we are very torn between moving districts now when it might be socially easier for our children or waiting until middle or high school to put them in a higher rated school. If I had to think of a complaint it would be the friendliness of the office staff is somewhat lacking but that would be a stretch.

The teachers and support staff really care about the kids. Everyone seems to know all the students names. The test scores keep pace with the more affluent, neighboring towns despite our much higher low income and ESL populations. I have two children there now, and will miss the school terribly when they are out of there!

Manning may not be as new, sleek and streamlined as schools in the surrounding areas but its building has character and its faculty and staff make my son feel as if he has not left home. Manning is like that pair of jeans that you've had for awhile that still fit better than anything else in your closet.

I love Manning because the teachers there were the best I ever had. They made me, a military brat, feel very welcome and I left not only with a great education, but friends that have lasted a lifetime.

The teachers really care about their students. It is NOT a job to them. They love what they're doing and care about the kids as if they were their own. They're excited about their job and how they can literally be a part of molding the adults these children will grow up to be.

My daughter went to Manning elementary. I was amazed how much she learned in just 2.5 hours a day! Her teacher Mrs.Roth is so good, she knows how to handle each kid and how to keep them occupied at their own levels... The principal Mrs. Molby is awesome too. They recognize each kid's strength and weakness and teach them accordingly. Great school, she was lucky to attend this school!

I went to Manning 7 years ago. I started at kindergarten and went through 5th grade. I loved this school so much. It provided me with a fabulous education, caring teachers, and the educational background to be successful farther down the line. I recommend this school to any parent that I talk to who lives in my neighborhood because I want other children to have the tremendous experience that I had.
