Open Quote I am an alumna and going to Manual was the best time of my life. Manual has more than prepared me to go an incredibly rigorous college. Go to this school if you can. Close Quote

Open Quote Manual is a great school. However, the pressure is INTENSE. There is pressure to join multiple extra curricular activities, to take an extremely challenging course load with several hours of homework every night, to play sports, etc. It is definitely not for everyone. Expect a lot of stress if you attend this school. For those who thrive in that type of environment it is a great school and it prepares students well for college courses. However, there is no commitment to the struggling student and many kids are 'exited' from the school after their Freshman or Sophmore years. Close Quote

Open Quote duPont Manual is a special school with teachers that elevate their students thinking and engage them in the learning process. Graduates are more than prepared for college as independent learners and thinkers. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
