I feel that my daughter has had pretty decent teachers in regards to her ADHD, they have been highly considerate of her needs and have given her extra time to complete work but that is just in her case that doesn't mean that all around you will find teachers like hers in this school. The school has a different atmosphere since the change of Principals last year.
I agree with the one review about having a child with a learning/behavioral disability. My child has ADHD and has declined since starting at Manchester. I woud not recommend this school the teachers are not trained and educated on how to handle children with ADHD, with the exception on my sons 1st grade teacher who is no longer there but fostered my son and was able to find the good instead of the bad.
If you have a child with a learning/behavioral disability, then good luck to you. The more we tried to help my daughter and the school with her situation, the more complaints from the school we got back. Doesn't matter if you have an IEP either.
Manchester's community is like one big, caring family. They foster an air of excellence in everythin the children do, and in turn, children strive to out-do their own best performances on a daily basis. My daughter comes home every day eager to share stories of what exciting new thing she learned, and what she wants to check out on the net because Mr. M 'said.' I believe that the joy for learning that Manchester is teaching their children will remain with the children throughout their lives. Thank you Ms. Poulk!
