Welcome to School District 114


The Staff, Administration, and Board of Education of Manhattan District 114 are committed to promoting excellence in student achievement and student behavior, enabling children to become successful life-long learners.


  • We believe that the chief purpose of the school is the all-around development of each child as an individual and as a citizen.
  • We believe that it is our duty as teachers to train pupils, that they may learn to live together peaceably, cooperatively, and efficiently as intelligent individuals in an increasingly changing world.
  • We believe in a democratically operated school system at all levels. Pupils will learn the democratic way only as they have a chance to share it.
  • We believe that the school should help develop in its pupils a strong sense of sound American patriotism together with a full understanding of the liberties and responsibilities which come under citizenship.
  • We believe that community understanding, interest, and cooperation are necessary for the continuing success of any desirable school program.
  • We believe that good classroom order and a healthy, cooperative working atmosphere are essential to the effective conduct of any class.

New Family Registration

New families that will be registering in the Manhattan Schools can click on the New Family Registration button above and fill out all of the forms online. Instructions to take you through the registration process can be found on our website. After you have completed all of the forms, please come to the District Office at Wilson Creek School to prove residency and show an original birth certificate.

Please bring with you:

  • Proof of residency form, printed and filled out
  • 1 supporting document from Category I
  • 2 supporting documents from Category II
  • Student's original birth certificate from the county where your child was born

We will make copies of all original documents and return them to you.

One Book, One Manhattan


We are proud to announce that our students chose Legend, by Marie Lu.

When you are shopping in local businesses, please check to see if there is a copy of Legend. Take it home, read it and pass it along to your family and friends. We want all of Manhattan to participate in our book discussion! If you don't see a book, please stop in at Manhattan-Elwood Public Library to order a copy.  We hope you join us in this endeavor!
