    Extracurriculars: The extracurricular activities offered at this school are noticeably amazing. There is so much to do, people hardly know about all of it. A few of my favorites that are offered are Track & Field, The Dance Team, Debate, Student Council, Yikes, Cross Country, Shattered Dreams Program, Deca, Powder Puff, Homecoming, Prom, Spirit week, and much more. No school is perfect, but mine is nearly close when it comes to extracurricular activities and opportunities.

    Overall Experience: I love my school. Manvel creates this unique vibe that fills every students soul. Yeah I know, sounds cheesy but it really does feel like a family. In everything that we do, we are supported. Students, teachers, counselors, janitors, and coaches are all apart of the reason why we keep going everyday. We like to succeed together as a whole. Football games are my absolute favorite. Its like we all are on the field! Everyone is cheering for everyone. Everyone is considered family. When one cry, we all cry. When one laugh, we all laugh. When one is successful, in spirit, we're all successful. There's nothing that can compare to the pride that my school has.

    Overall Experience: What makes Manvel High School so appreciated and beloved is because of our wonderful principal at the time, Ms. Liptack. I feel like our school became one after the incident with her husband and son. With a state contending football team (that I was a leader on), students were encouraged to come on Friday nights and support their figurative family.

    Teachers: The teachers at MHS are down to earth and knowledgeable in their teachings. Some of them even go above and beyond for their students.
