    As muCh as I'd like to say this school was a great time in my life it wasn't. Some of the staff were always helpful and willing to help with anything. When it really mattered the people in charge that should've been following suit didn't. Difference isn't accepted amongst students in this school. With that said the teachers really didn't seem to intervene should a student needed a person to control the situation. Some situations were completely out of hand and out of control. This does happen in all schools I know but not that often. Kids and teachers go to school for education whether learning or teaching the focus should be on those two subjects.

    I am a former student of Manor Middle School and I loved my experience at Manor Middle. What a great place to grow and learn as a teen. The teachers were phenomenal! The principals were always so involved with us students. The classes were able challenge each student because students are put in classes where they were able to learn and succeed. Not only are the teachers such nice people but they find ways to make class so much fun. As you know there will be students you get along with and students you don't get along with but the teachers are always aware of what goes on whether they share that with the student or not. overall what an awesome school!

    Manor Middle School is an excellent school for students to learn and grow. Teachers go out of there way to help every child in school and out.

    This school isn't very good for younger special children. Creativity and differences in children usually get them literally attacked by other children. One child was hated by the whole school shot with rubber bands choked punched kicked and threatened. He was so frightened he added many things to his list of fears and started being homeschooled. He seems to have worse paranoia then he did before. Teachers don't seem to believe his side of stories when other kids tell lies about him doing things so he gets in deep trouble. The teachers really don't do a thing to help children. I'd rather keep this child anonymus but I do know him personally.
