Manzano High School 5

Manzano is a great school, it has an amazing English department, strong music and sports programs. They have more languages than most high schools as mandarin, italian, german, spanish, vietnamese, and others are offered. My children have done quite well with their education from MHS...two are in college in the medical and engineering programs. The science and math programs have struggled through the years due to teachers passing away or other misfortunes...but they do have great teachers in these areas. I think one of the best things about MHS is the diversity; every ethnicity attends manzano, every socio-economic status and every culture is represented to my knowledge. The passion for people is strong and the judgement against foreign cultures is low, it is the real world as it should be. Please support these great kids, teachers and community!

I don't have a kid that go there thank God! but after learning that one of their school counselors was involved in child abuse, bullying and harassment is working there? WOW! Check the public record if you think I'm joking.

My school has really great kids and they are all very nice, but the teachers are not really good at teaching. they do not interact with the kids enough they just talk and assume that we can soak in all that information. Manzano is really going to help me get a good future because the only reason I am attending this school is to play varsity basketball. Manzano is a pretty good school but who am I to say its the best.

My son graduated 3 months ago. My impressions follow: Great English department; hopefully the same teachers continue. Great band program. The science teachers seem genuinely interested in the kids; but the administration doesn't help them much. Some teachers in the math department have the practice of retrieving the tests after the students have looked at them. This prevents the students from later studying the problems they missed. It also means the teacher won't have to worry about students sharing the same test with next year's class. In my education, this happened rarely, and was detrimental to learning. I don't think Manzano's math teachers are overly energetic, nor effective. When I called to talk to teachers, about 40% of them didn't call back unless an e-mail was sent to them with a copy to the Vice-Principal. Good teachers would call back within 24 hours, usually the same day. The others could take a week or more. If I had an issue with their teaching method (usually math), they would put the focus on my child, rather than their method. This seemed to be a common technique they used to keep from admitting any culpability or drawback of their own.

Almost done with my Freshman year here at Manzano. There is one specifi teachers I'll never forget and that's my Biology teacher, Mr. Duran. He really really cares about his students and will give you his full honest insight about anything. But overall I don't think the teachers really care. Sports and BAND! Is huge! GO BAND(: Clarinets all the waaay:) If you want more socializing than education then go here. I'm hoping to go to Eldorado next year for a better education.

Very unhappy with this school. The teachers don't care actually the whole school don't care. My daughter went through 5 math teachers and still didn't find a good one. The spanish teacher she had, he had his favorites (the blondes) only. APS school system is not a great system at all.

Manzano is a great school. It's great for kids who aren't involved in sports and are independent. I enjoy the school, don't go in for counseling, and get to know your teachers. It's not hard, it's dedication

Amazing School - strong teacher/parent commitment to the students. The best principle in APS.
