Manton Middle School’s main entrance faces US 131 and is located near the flagpole. Students in grades 5-8 attend classes with teachers working in teams to provide a rigorous curriculum. We feel it is important to work together as a team with parents/guardians to provide a positive experience for our students.
Manton Middle School continues to be proud of our academic excellence and this past year was named “Academic State Champions” by Bridge Magazine. We were ranked 14th out of approximately 600 schools. Our staff works very hard to make sure the curriculum, instruction, and assessment align with the standards by using research-based best practices and making sure the Grade Level Content Expectations are taught. All content classrooms have either Smart Boards or LCD Projectors. Many classrooms have access to Clicker Systems and the teachers continue to use the two computer labs that we have for use by entire classrooms. Each grade level has a classroom set of Chromebooks. Experiences outside of school are still essential components of our middle school. Our 5th grade does an overnight team building trip to a camp Hayo-Went-Ha, our 6th graders go to Camp Rotary for a week, and our 8th grade travels to Detroit. The staff at Manton Middle School continues to be committed to our vision of “Whatever it takes, Manton students are worth it.”
Extra- curricular activities are important for the middle school age student. For our seventh and eighth graders we offer volleyball, football and cross-country in the fall. During the winter months boys’ and girls’ basketball will be offered along with wrestling. In the spring, track and field will be available. A variety of sports are also provided for our fifth and sixth graders such as volleyball, wrestling, and basketball. Other after school activities that are offered are Student Council, and disc golf. Students are expected to meet our eligibility requirements in order to participate in these sports and activities.
We are committed as a staff to provide a safe environment where all students have the opportunity to become thoughtful, productive, contributing members of society.
Success is a team effort and we believe the team consists of students, parents, teachers and staff.
