20 Parent Reviews for Manchester High School

Handful of teachers are great. The majority will sit back and watch your child fail. They do not update edline for 3-4 weeks and once the parent knows whats happening, its too late to do anything about it. Their response is "it's on edline", but it's a month old. One teacher literally posted 6 assignments ...  Read more

As a parent at Manchester I have nothing but good to say. The staff and adminstrators have been TOP in directing my son's education. We have yet to find a teacher that isn't genuinely interested in his future. The school is a wonderful microcosm of the real world, a diverse student population and a large ...  Read more

Awesome school, my child is challenged daily by a rigourous curriculum and the administration takes a proactive approach in handling the school's various issues. The faculty communicate with parents very effectively and efficiently.

As a alumni of Manchester High School, I can honestly say that all the teachers give 110% all the time and truly care about every individual that enters their classroom.

As a member of the Manchester family, I would like to commend all of the faculty and staff for working so diligently to educate and keep our kids safe.

Manchester is a great school and there are so many varieties of different classes to choose from. The specialty centers have so much to offer along with the athletics.

I am a principal and career educator myself. All I want from a school is for my daugghter to be able to learn what she goes to school to learn. She does that at Manchester High. Her experiences at MHS have prepared her for life after school. Therefore, I am very satisfied.

My son just started MHS a few weeks ago and so far we are impressed. The teachers seem to really be available to both parents and the students. They all seem to truly utilize and update which is a great help to the not so organized students. They also gave us some wonderful links for ...  Read more

Manchester is way too big. Everytime I go in there, I get the feeling that it is on the verge of being out of control. I have never met a bad teacher (most have been very good for my two sons), but there is a lack of overall control by the administration. In talking with my kids and their friends, ...  Read more

The SOL End-of-Course tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Virginia.
