Welcome to our web page and to Manton Consolidated Schools, where our motto, “What Ever It Takes, Manton Students Are Worth It”, drives our every decision. We are very proud of our school’s long standing tradition of success in the classroom, on the playing fields, and in serving the community. Manton Schools are K-12 North Central AdvancEd Accredited. We are one of about 15 schools north of US-10 that have earned that distinction. Manton High School was ranked 92 out of 650 high schools in the Michigan Context and Performance Report Card (2012) and received a B. In the Context and Performance Report Card for Middle and Elementary Schools (2013) Manton Middle School was ranked 183rd with an A and the Manton Elementary School was ranked 205th with an A out of 2,362 schools in Michigan.
As important as our academic success, is our student involvement in our community. Our students learn about service by joining in projects with our Senior Center, local churches, and community service organizations. Our National Honor Society and Student Council coordinate school wide service projects such as collecting for food banks and participating in Project Christmas. The Manton Consolidated Schools family is committed to teaching both academics and values for life.
We have a wonderfully supportive community that embraces our school! Groups like the Manton Alumni Association have built their trust fund to over $315,000. Since 1986 the Alumni Association has awarded over $170,000 in scholarships to graduating seniors. The Elementary and Middle School PTO is active in its support by helping pay for field trips and assemblies. Our Outdoor Education Program, primarily financed by a golf scramble that earns over $10,000 in one weekend in August, provides a wonderful experience for our 5th, 6th and 7th grade students. The skills and challenges they learn in the “wild” are educational highlights that create memories for life! Our Manton school family is indeed fortunate to have such amazing community and alumni support!
