We are delighted to have our children attend this awesome school. Everyone, including administration, educators and support staff create a community environment that promotes success, leadership, and respect for others. We cant think of any place we would rather our children learn, grow and flourish!

My daughter attended this school K-2 grade, however we moved to a different part of the state. As everyone else mentions in the other reviews, this school is WONDERFUL!!! Enough cannot be said about the Principal, teachers, and staff. If relocating to this area, consider this district, and specifically this elementary school.

Best little known secret - Central Manor is an excellent school. From the Principal who I think knows every single child and parents names, to the amazing teachers that go the extra mile for the kids. I have two children attending and love it! I wouldn't look to another school even if I had the chance! Every parent I know who has kids going to Central Manor would say the same.

Excellent school. It is newly renovated and the teachers are very caring. I would not want my child to go to any other school!

Lancaster county's best kept secret! From the devoted and dedicated teachers who create an loving open environment to the wonderful leadership of a principal who has 4 children of her own and sets the tone of the whole school. So impressed that the principal knows not only the names of all 500+ children, but during Grandparents day she knew all the Grandparents names as well! The focus of her school is NOT teaching to the PA state test, yet somehow the children score consistently above the state average! Did I mention the staff stays once hired, no shuffling of staff, the principal knows how to hire the best staff and our children benefit from her skills! We choose our home because my child would attend this school and even though moving was soo hard on everyone I would do it again in a heartbeat!

I LOVE Central Manor!!! I have 2 children who also love going to school there. I have nothing but wonderful things to say about our school experience so far, especially the teachers and the principal. The school is such a wonderful community of families that really do care about their children and how to help make the school successful. I would truly give Central Manor a 5 star rating!

The results for reading, writing, science and math are displayed on GreatSchools profiles.
