I have a child at this school and cannot recommend it...sorry! This school is like a crooked government. If a child is receiving an F, they are punished instead of helped, even if they are getting all A's in other classes. Their policy on Failure is not an Option punishes children for needing help/ If a student is failing because they need help, not simply for screwing up and not doing work, it dont matter. They get a detention! Its a horrible thing to see that the kids are being forced to teach themselves.

Take it from some one that went through this school system. Going to MHS was not that great. There are rules that are set to follow but not every teacher enforced the rules. When I was there, there were only 3 teachers that did and the student body didn't like them just because they were doing there job. That and because their classes were hard and they didn't want to do any real work. I felt like a lot of the teachers there let the students get away with a lot just so they would be liked. When I graduated and went to college, it was a huge step and was very hard so i do not believe Manchester does not do a good enough job in educating and preparing their students for the next step, college. Also, they let the students get away with so much that they can pass a lot of classes by doing very little work. If you're a parent concerned about the education you child is getting don't send them to Manchester.

Manchester is not as large as the fancy high schools in Ann Arbor, and has fewer resources. But there are many great teachers and competent administrators. One of my children was accepted into a VERY selective college (and did well), and my other child was accepted at another VERY selective school (and did well). They mentioned on several occasions how their high school classes had prepared them completely for some of their math/science classes in that much of the college material was review. And every teacher and staff member knows every student by name.

Great school and a safe neiborhood. Small class sizes let the teacher and the student connect and learn better. I have been to other schools in the district and never seen more motivated teachers. The AD is a GREAT man with morals that cares about the education and wellfair of the students more than the sports the school offers. Make a visit, i guarantee you will love this school.

Ideal sized school had the highest test scores in Washtenaw County; it is in the top tier statewide. 400 students is perfect size. New principal has brought many much needed changes. Big school class offerings, small school attention. As the site says, one of the best schools in MI.

discipline level low, football players given leeway, athletic director is football coach so theres no soccer program. dress code fairly non existent, VERY short skirts are allowed. rather close-minded community, some decent young teachers. paraprofessionals available, they do little good though (glorified babysitters). Parents not very supportive, community influence holds schools forward progress back. Principal leaving next year so he's a lame duck.
