A student who is able to adjust quickly to their surroundings. With it being taught in the college format a student who is focused strongly on academics will succeed well. It does help you prepare for college in an astounding way. I feel a lot more confident entering a bigger pond than other students in my new graduating class. A student who can get along well and accept all kinds of people is very important in this school. I'm not talking about race, but accepting people for their choices in life. The way they dress themselves and the way the act. It's what I imagined high school to be like. Jocks, emos, preppies, etc. However, the one thing I find highly unique about this school; is how nonjudgmental everyone is. Though academics is very important, we also have intense feelings towards athletics. Being a part of one of the nations longest rivals also leads to everyone in the school being more welcoming and closer.

It is an expectation of students at Manual to have a rigorous course schedule, and to take these classes seriously. There are hours of homework assigned every night, so students at this school must know when it is time to buckle-down, and when it is time to relax and take it easy. If one wishes to participate in sports in high school, one must seriously consider the focus and diligence one must possess in order to be successful in sports and academics.
