    "Manning might suit some driven, and parentally controlled students, who strive to achieve academia (good grades) above all else. As for an enjoyable education, you need to go elsewhere. Just academics, four hours of homework a night, stressful weeks at the end of trimesters where you have to complete presentations and papers in all subjects, and sometimes inadequate teaching (with stressed out teachers, small lockers, tight hallways, old bathrooms, leads to success for those who strive on the stress, and whose parents stay up late with them every night. Education with no heart = Manning."

    "Manning has an excellent academic program and students are challenged in a safe environment. The change in Principal for the 2008/09 school year has had a noticeable (negative) impact on this schools stellar reputation created under Tripp Sargent; enforcement of school discipline is very inconsistent among faculty and administration and consequences for severe infractions not tough enough. Monitoring of teacher classroom performance and execution of curriculum, and teacher participation in school conferences and activities also needs improvement."

    "Must be the hardest middle school in the entire state of CO! Great foundation for high school and college. Be prepared for four hours of homework each night. Most recommendations for middle school level homework assignments are 80 - 90 minutes daily not 240 minutes! Otherwise, school totally prepares students for higher learning. Typical middle school peer issues, parking lot drop off/pick up process is very dangerous and a total nightmare. Staff seems to be well meaning and well educated for the most part. Can use Manning School as a very good foundation as stated earlier for higher learning, way ahead of most middle schools in the entire state of CO. A parent review"

    "Manning is a truly exceptional middle school. I graduated in 2007, and I still miss the motivated kids, teachers and environment. I am now in 10th grade and I am taking the most advanced courses available. Manning prepared me so well for high school and although the environment is 'sheltered,' it is what a school should be- focused on learning and maturing instead of accomadating crazy teenagers. All programs are exceptional and the extracurricular academic opportunities rival my current high school. Manning is a school of excellence both academically and socially."

    "I am a manning Alumni of 4 years now. I will always consiter it my school and my high school just a place I spend my days cause I have to. I was in a very gifted class and looking back it was the single greatest experince of my life. I was beyodn well educated. I always struggled in math and for the first time I was ahead and actuallly felt like i knew what i was doing. THe math i do now in high school, it doesnt have the lasting affect. The teachers were allof the highest quality and I never had difficulty getting along with them or learn what ever it was they were trying to convey. I wont lie in saying its a sheltered school. Middle school is where wild teen tendencies develop. Manning has no such issues. The quality of educators and students is unparalleled."
