This school has graduates who are now lawyers, educators (Masters and above), businessmen, ex pro-football players and many areas of life. On or about 2008, the new administrative staff through leadership and changes such as teachers working in teams, brought about additional improvements to improve the educationf for students attending MANOR Middle School. Overall, the academics and education provided, improved the student achievement as shown by the higher rating achieved 'RECOGNIZED'. This rating is shown on the building of the school.
I love Manor it has the best teachers best athletic program i love going to this school because i trust every one and they know how to handle the situation the right way and Sports is what no other school can compare to the Manor Middle School!! Alexus Scharkley
The Flames Are The Best Group Of Girls On Campus..They Work Hard Do Everything They Are Told And Treat Eachother With Respect ..They're Family & Sisters At Heart.. Chanel Has The Best Personailty And Is Out Going...Allison Is The Leader & Everyone Likes Her Better Then The Officers . Toni is the hard worker of the group and shes beautiful :) I am done :33
First of all, I have to say that this website should be to inform the new students and their parents about the school rating in general according to your experience and NOT about your child, student, etc because if you have to post his/her name in order to be recognized or embarrass others probably you and your child have to work with the poor self-esteem. Secondly Flames is the Best MS Group of Dance in KISD and Emeralds (Ellison) the Best HS Group followed by Killeen HS. You are welcome to set up appt to walk thru the school's hallway to see the trophies, photos and recognitions. If you don't like the dance group you are free to walk away to other campus because almost ALL the schools have dance group but Manor MS is the only one in Killeen that participate in National Competition and the answer is obvious (they are confident of their talents and the trophies talk by itself). By the way, we CAN NOT JUDGE the teacher's performance in the dance group because it is a VOLUNTEER SERVICE and they are DONATING their time to train the girls to proudly represent the school and we have to appreciate that because it's not a regular class; it's extra and the teachers don't get pay for it.
Its a good school but I would not reccomend the dance program The coach Margarita Rodriguiez(Spanish Teacher) is unorganized with the program and dosnt pay enough attention all of the dancers/students. Mrs.Kristi Carr though is the assitant coach (who should be the main coach) is very caring towards the girls.Maritza Flores is the 3rd in command and (none of the girls like her). But that is one problem at Manor is dance. Lots of fights break out, Teachers only work for the money(Ms.Stacey Riles) also stay away from the Academic Adviser Mrs.Tibbs Jones who has an attitude problem. Mr.Welch the princpal is pretty cool and nice so he's a good part of the school. The special needs class is run by nice teachers Sandra Cahill and Mrs.Lewis. The help in the special needs classroom are the Teacher's Aid Mrs.Duren and Mrs.Santiago. I would rate this school a 2.5 out of 5 stars.
Manor Middle School is a good school to be in. I've been going to Manor since 6th to 8th grade, and it has been an amazing journey there, although some teachers I don't like, but over all it's been a good year!
I see plenty of negativity here. It seems many are following along with the popular notion of blaming educators for the lack of parenting in the community. One should not blame teachers for the lack of discipline, ambition, and respect of the students that attend this school. The previous poster is a prime example. This parent blames educators focus on discipline for the lack of it in the children attending? I have had two students go through Manor. Neither of them ever complained about the teachers, just student behavior. The oldest is graduating with honors from HS. The other has received Commended ratings on every TAKS exam since grade six, and is a member of the National Jr. Honor Society. Their success is directly attributed to quality instruction and high expectations from home. Not accepting failure from students and blaming the educators who are working hard to make to make their school successful.
After my previous post earlier, I picked up my son from school. 4 different fights broke out in the cafeteria. MMS really needs new staff and teachers. I can not stress how much this school is not concerned with teh best intrests of our children. I agree with some of the other posts. They are more worried about dress code violations then the academics and safety of the children.
