Heights Middle School, New Mexico – Teacher feedback

It was exciting to see how quickly the kids fell in love with the games.

Elk Meadows Elementary, Utah – teachers collaborate with Mangahigh on Edmodo

Myself and Mr. Ray met on Edmodo. He offered to have his class tutor my kids in learning about Mangahigh. The kids started to correspond via Edmodo over Christmas break.

Herricks School District, New York – Teacher feedback

I am so impressed with your site.  It is hot and sticky here and we have only 2 weeks left before the kids graduate to middle school.  But all they want to do is play on Mangahigh.

The math discussions going on and the cooperation is amazing.  They are even playing late into the night and on weekends.  Way to go!
