  • I am an alumni for Manual and I loved it all four years! I really enjoyed high school and it sad to say that my high school years were way funner than my college years. I always find myself taking up for Manual because others seem to have a misconception of the school because its on the South end... but I know the truth and Manual was/is the best!!! : )

  • Manual high school is a great school and I dont care what other people say about it. Everybody thinks that just because its on the south end it cant be as good as any other school. I know that Manual has alot of patential and it will as the years pass get better and better. So for all the teachers and staff thank you for not giving up on me and all of the other students. Im not going to state my name because I dont want any type of special treatment. Sincerely
