    Health & Safety: High school is known for the occasional crazy stunts that are pulled by most students and it has become very normal. However I feel pretty safe and I know with the security we have that in the end things will be worked out.

    Overall Experience: Most high school students do not get to have the opportunity that I have had attending Manvel High School and I greatly appreciate it. Being in private school my whole life and transitioning to public school for my high school years was a great success. Not only have I excelled in academics and being apart of the drill team but I have also gain many wonderful friends along the way and that is all I can ask for when I ponder on my high school years in the future. I truly discovered myself here even with the mess ups and disappointment I have caused from time to time it has truly made me who I am today and that is loved by all.

    Food: The cafeteria staff works extremely hard to make the student body happy about eating lunch everyday. Although it is very common to not like school food, I think they do an okay job with what they prepare. However our school is overfilled to capacity that some do not get as much time to eat.

    Administration & Policies: The administration and policies are so strict that many students are not known to get away with not following the rules.
