    I currently go to this school. It is the best. Mrs.Rice has done everything she can. We learn and do anything any other school would. I love this schooo and always will. We also have a wonderful choir I am in that we get picked for KMEA. You should by western one time in jcps west main street. God bless. The only thing to improve is the lunch but that is in transition.

    This school is now a magnet for Visual & Performing Arts. While test scores have been low in the past there has been a complete changing of the guard at this school from the administrators to the teachers with a plan implemented like the one at Manual. Every teacher there seems to be there because they want to be & because they want to help our children!! The arts programs are all amazing & the kids are dedicated too. So far it has been nothing short of a WONDERFUL experience!!
