Open Quote My daughter went to Manchester High and it changed her life for the better. There are some excellent teachers there who are dedicated, hardworking and hellbent on making a difference with the students. We sent her to the Manchester High School magnet program for mass communication, and she would otherwise have gone to Cosby High School (rated 5 stars by School Digger) and it was the right decision for her. Sure, you need to seek out the good teachers and put some effort into your education if you go there, but there are a lot of great teachers and administrators at Manchester. Also, every high school in Chesterfield has a "specialty program" that your child can apply for in the 8th grade, as well as two Governor's Schools. These accept students countywide, so don't buy a house in a more expensive area just for the school.

The area where Manchester High is located is certainly not affluent, but if you find that this is where you can afford to buy a house, don't worry about sending your child to Manchester. Pete Koste, the principal is fantastic as is Ms. Ellis, the new Assistant Principal. Make your child take Cary Nothnagel for theatre whether or not they think they have any interest in drama. Art and music also have very good programs. The content area teachers in Mass Communications are good, and some are great. There are AP classes and Dual Enrollment classes that are very good and can give students college credits. This school does not deserve zero stars. Unfortunately, it doesn't deserve five either; you need to work too hard to find the great teachers among the mediocre. Close Quote

Open Quote Best kept secret in Chesterfield Co.... Amazing administration, teachers,support staff and student body. The students have several different elective classes to choose from(culinary, arts, business, duel enrollment, AP, music, choir......). Feels like an extended family. There are several after school activities too!
Don't let the test scores fool you.....The success rate of these students AFTER HS is great! 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.
