    "It is a good school. the school can be lot better if school administration (especially principal) and some stabborn teachers can forget their personal grivences and work for the students. Parents participation is also very low - especially fathers! there were hardly any father present in PTA meetings for the last 4 years i was associated with the PTA. presence of students very much needed especially in SLT(school leadership team) meetings and they must have an opportunity to express their problems/solutions without fear of repercussion! this school has lots of potential please try to keep it up."

    "It's average. Way too many students. Some of the teachers are really good, while others are just waiting until their retirement comes up."

    "I attended this Highschool . It was called Benjamin Franklin HS. I managed to get through College and medical school, and attended law school. Typical PR hispanic boy. Went through the USAF and retired. I learned a great deal here. There was only one problem that I remember; bad kids in classes who should be in jail, not in school. Thank God, back then there was tracking...."

    "Manhattan Center is a great school because it offers many opportunites which when used effectively can result in a great High School career. However, this school is overcrowded and that issue does extend on to the staff and the student who sturggle to strech out limited resources. The area is also not very good, but the school does attempt to make the school as safe as possible. Overall, in my personal opinion and experience, Manhattan Center is a great school for fostering a good education to those students who desire to be successful and who put in the effort."
