You will hear that you have skipped high school and gone straight to college level here and it is true. The kids here are here to learn or excel in their Art form.

Some teachers are excellent; others are lazy, i.e., no grades posted for more than 8 weeks of instruction. If a student is 18 and cuts school, there are NO consequences.

Manual is overrated. Some teachers there are fantastic educators who care deeply about the students. Others do not want to be bothered with a student who isn't off-the-charts brilliant in every subject. I found a couple of teachers to be downright complacent, even lazy. Administration is ineffective ...  Read more

Teachers are blessed to have Intelligent and motivated students and students are blessed to have amazing and passionate teachers. Every student feels at home and enjoys their high school experience. At Manual, seniors ...  Read more
