Shadowing at duPont Manual High School

Manual welcomes the opportunity to allow your 8th grade, parochial, private, Anchorage, non-Jefferson county residents, home-schooled or out-of-state student to shadow a Manual student for a day.

Pursuant to JCPS district guidelines, current JCPS students are not allowed to shadow any JCPS high school. We look forward to meeting your JCPS student at Manual 8th grade Open House.

We have 8 possible shadow days. Choose one for your student to spend the day at Manual and experience our excellence, diversity and tradition.

School day info
  • Lunch - Students may bring a lunch from home or school lunch is $2.90.
  • Attire – common sense casual. No bare midriffs, sleeveless shirts, tank tops, sagging pants, super short clothing or anything that will be overly distracting to your student during the day. Please be comfortable, but recognize it is a school.
  • Bring something to read or work on in case your host has a quiz in the classroom. Cell phones are only allowed out at the discretion of each teacher. A string sack for lunch, water bottle and a book works well.

We look forward to meeting your student!
