    If you have child in a IEP don't expect any real help also they let the other kid who are not in IEP make fun of the ones who are. As a parent they care less about what you think and use out of date material for some of the classes and if your kid is indian forget help because the JOM is the biggest laugh there is. They also think a D grade is good and will pass them just to get them out.. If you could rate them a negative it would be -10

    The faculty and administration fail on every level almost every time. They never admit any wrongdoing (even when it's proven they are at fault) and try to portray this image of perfection despite the glaring imperfections. Teachers while some of them do try are severely limited in what they can do. Some of the teachers incorporate their beliefs into the curriculum or show favoritism to students who share their beliefs or academically "punish" students who don't. Music and arts could be better funded in respect to their mediocre sports program. I don't recall seeing a football player trying to sell candy bars to raise funds for activities.

    When I went to Mannford just a few years ago I really wasn't pleased with the school. Coming from a school that really worked with me and all my other classmates I had hoped for the same here. The teachers were great but the officials who should have done better did not and I was almost expelled over a say-so that was not proved nor confirmed to be true. If a student can stay away from trouble-causing students then Mannford isn't a bad place to be.

    The teachers do not know how to properly support their students and tend to seem like they are only doing their job for the money some of the teachers put their own personal beliefs into their teaching and at some times seem like they will go as far as to convert you to their way of seeing things furthermore they never even try to put life lessons or things you will need to know to make your life successful into the teachings the administrative side of this school has an even worse reputation and has faltered many times this i can say from experience with dealing with them. I have been a student here for the last 5 years and im frankly tired of the way the entire school handles things another issue needed to be looked at is preference the people in sports tend to get more attention than most

    We love teaching at Mannford High School and the problems here are minor compared to other schools. We are obviously doing our job because test scores continue to rise! --K&C

    I am currently a teacher at MHS;we just switched from the block to the trimester schedule--it's pretty much a disaster! Kids have split classes (for example Algebra IIA first tri Algebra IIB not until 3rd tri) a lot of students also switch teachers between tri's for the same subject and if a student fails the 1st tri of an all year class they have to stay in it the 2nd and 3rd tri--even though they're destined to fail because the 1st portion of the class isn't offered again until the following school year. The scheduling was very poorly done and class sizes have increased to approximately 28 students per class. As far as discipline goes the principals are not consistent and tend to leave most things up to the individual teacher; which I might add that we hate! Also dress code is not enforced and piercing rules are not enforced.

    While the testing and course difficulty is good the transition into college and the clickish group environment foster or condone a narrow minded elistist middleclass and it shows to have a negitive effect.

    I sent 2 daughters from kindegarten through 12th grade at Mannford. My youngest was entered in to the gifted program in the 1st grade. All the principals at each level did their best to accomodate a gifted student in meeting her academic goals. She received a full ride scholarship to college with the help of the faculty and principals at Mannford

    I am a former student of Mannford and graduated a few years ago. I was a 12 year senior and loved Mannford. Sure I hated block schedule when I was there but as far as teacher administration and other staff Mannford was great! I now am in contact with many different schools around the area and I'm extremely happy I was at Mannford compared to other schools that I've seen!

    I graduated from Mannford in 81 moved away and ended up moving back. I have since had 3 children in the school system. One in the high school one in the upper elementary and one in the middle school. I must say that I strongly disagree with other reviews that says that they do not include the parents. My step-son was in the high school and was in trouble from time to time although none of it very extreme. I will say strongly that my opinion counted with the school and they called me every time there was a problem worth calling me on. I have worked in the past with another school system and Mannford's is the best by far. I would suggest that most of the people who say they don't listen to parents have habitual problem children. The problem starts at home normally.

    I attended Mannford High School and went on to receive a BS in business. Mannford schools laid the foundation that I needed to succeed further in my adult life. I found the academic offerings acceptable in preparing me for a Division I college and the extracurricular activities had something to offer for everyone sports music drama ag etc..... What I witnessed in the involvement of parents was that the parents that had problems with administration usually had problems with everything and everyone else as well. They want the school to teach the kids things the parents should have already taught them at home! I found the administration outstanding and fair and the teachers really seemed to care.

    I am a teacher at Mannford HS and this is not my first teaching assignment. When I look at the varied curriculum there is no contest. Mannford wins hands down. Mannford's leadership is the best that it has been. Students who get into trouble are handled firmly but fairly. I see very little parent participation. We have parent teacher conferences and usually have less than 25 parents that bother to show up. I welcome calls from parents and I try to personally call parents when a child shows improvement in the subject matter or in attitude. I am proud to work with the quality teachers that we have in Mannford. Now if we could only get the parents involved!

    I moved here from another state and my son has been having a lot of problems ajusting. The teachers are a lot better but I can understand why Mannford has a low graduation percentage rate. They need to care more about the students that needs extra help.

    I think that Mannford puts to much into their sports and not enough into their Band. They have a great Band and I think they need to support them more. As for their academics. I think are very good. I think the school board is ran very poorly. They need better leadership. Don't take me wrong They have some great teachers. But that is not where the problem is.

    The overall administration and leadership for the high school is very poor. They don't work with students and parents they dictate to students and parents. They don't listen to parent input and are set that it is their way or 'no way'. I believe that Mannford has good teacher and opportunities for students if the administration wouldn't limit the maximum potential for each student.

    My experience with Mannford High School has not been a pleasant one. In determining the best placement or educational opportunities for a child who may not fit their criteria of a 'perfect' child the administration is not supportive of including the parent as part of the 'team'. I think that Mannford High School administration has a dictatorship mentality. If someone disagrees with decisions they make too bad. Most parents in this community seem to want to be involved with their child's educational decisions but more parents need to let the administration know that we are not children and are capable of making sound decisions with regard to what our child needs. The school appears to have forgotten that students and parents have rights.

    Being a student in the Mannford School system was a good experience for me and well prepared me for college. The small classroom sizes allowed me to get one on one attention in my math classes. My English teacher taught me so much and encouraged me to excel when I was custom to just doing what I could to get by. My coaches were the most influencial. They not only taught me about athletics and health but how to handle life's issues. They constantly pushed me to become more than what I thought I could be. I saw many classmates learn how to respect adults from our coaches and adminstrative leaders. Thank you teachers and administration for providing a safe fun learning environment for my educational experience.

    I have found the school administration severly lacking in the quality of education available to the students. Seems to be an attitude of get them in and get them out.

  • (8 years ago)

    This school has the capability to be great but is not. The high school administration is weak and prejudicial. The Block Curriculum could be great but is not. The offering of electives is minimal. A student needing 29 credits to graduate is preposterous with this curriculum. I have been told the Alternative Education Academy and the teacher is phenomenal. Good teachers are the exception rather than the rule. But there are a few. More attention should be paid to academics than extracurricular sports. Behavior and Guidance issues are where the most help is needed. I am the mother of three that have attended/graduated from M.H.S.
