Advertising Information for besthousingvalue

High school is a name used in some parts of the world, and particularly in North America, to describe the last segment of compulsory secondary education. It is preceded by primary education. High school is also the name used to describe the institution in which the final stage of compulsory education takes place. In the United States, high schools generally consist of grades 9, 10, 11, and 12, although the inclusion of grade 9 varies by school district.
DuPont Manual High School is a secondary school located at Louisville, Kentucky. It is part of the Jefferson County Public School district. The Principal of the school is Dr. Beverly Keepers. The student was estimated 1,800 in 2003 to 2004. The three story building is in the Gothic style, made prominent by a large, majestic tower that protrudes upward from the structure's center. DuPont Manual traces its roots through the University of Louisville back to the Jefferson Seminary in 1798. After several changes, the Jefferson Seminary was divided into the University of Louisville and the Louisville Male High School in 1856. Soon, the Louisville Girls High School became operational in 1856. In 1892, a generous grant of dollars 150,000 from Alfred Victor du Pont became the foundation for the duPont Manual Training High School.
Manual holds Kentucky's state record from 2000 of 52 National Merit Semifinalists, ranking third in the United States for that year behind only the Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology and Stuyvesant High School. In the past few years it has won both National Science Bowl in 2000 and National Academic League championships, and performed exceptionally in Quiz Bowl tournaments throughout the eastern half of the nation, even achieving 7th place at the NAQT's High School National Championships.
Manual has been mentioned several times in Redbook Magazine's America's Best Schools, based on its innovative programs and commitment to excellence. It has also been featured in the United States Department of Education as a National School of Excellence. In 2002, Manual became its own region for the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair. The school offers many sports includes baseball, basketball, cheerleading, cross country, dance team, field hockey, lacrosse, soccer, tennis, track and other sports teams. 
The mission of DuPont Manual High School is to provide an environment in which all students will acquire the necessary skills to become responsible thinkers who appreciate diversity and are productive citizens in their community.
