    This school is horrible. Staff are not well trained students are taught material that is 3-4 years below their grade level and behavior methods include locking children up in isolation rooms. Children are also allowed to punch kick and attack other children.

    Our son is a student in the Lower School and is finally thriving after flailing around in the public school system in our town. We are extremely happy with his progress as our son finishes his first year there this week.

    These reviews of Manville are very worrying as we have just been recommended this school for our 10 year old son!

    The behavioral practices here are draconian. Isolation rooms are restraints are standard practice. Many staff are not certified. The whole experience was destructive.

    I'm Darcy I am almost 13 years old and I'm in the middle school of Manville. This is my first year here and the first time that I can say I love my school yesterday i was home sick and something amazing happened i thought to myself.........I want to be at school not here. This school lets every child be an indivisual and express them selves. Manville school was a gift from God to me and i thank him for it everyday
