My son was in a public school in Jersey City, not a good learning enviroment. He started here this past September and we both LOVE it! This is a great learning enviroment and they really care at this school.....LOVE IT!

Small school, and I went to a very nice college and did fine. So long as students put in a good effort, they can retain a lot. Too many dummies end up going no where, but that isnt the school's fault, its the fault of the students and their parents. I'd go back if I could.

Do not, if in any way possible, send your children here. They will learn a lot more, and gain more respect for their college years ahead of them if they do not go to this school. As a current student, the day-to-day lack of interest in learning and understanding anything that is being taught, or current events, saddens me

This is a good school. If you want a school thats small and close knit then this is the school for you. To me it's like a private school thats how small it is. They have a good fbla program and great teachers. The school is clean and its always improving. Some many students come back and say they miss it. Everyone gets along, and it's a very safe school.

Manville High School offers a substandard education and if you can afford it, send your students to a private school! As a former student and current teacher, I can attest to the fact that students graduating from Manville have difficulty adapting to the college environment due to inadequate preparation.

I am a former student at Manville High School and absolutely love it there. The teacher's the students and the staff make it enjoyable. Everyone knows each other and gets along great. The school offers several different programs that will benefit you down the road. Manville High is a small knit school that provides a good education. The school environment is very safe !

About the tests


In 2012-2013 New Jersey used the High School Proficiency Assessment (HSPA) to test students in grade 11 in language arts literacy and math. The HSPA is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New Jersey. Students are required to pass the HSPA in order to graduate. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
