Principal's Message

James Miller
Middle School Principal



     Welcome to Manchester Middle School! We have grades five through eight in our building with a population of approximately 410 students. We received an “Excellent” school rating by the state of Ohio for five years.  Our mission is to provide a quality education in a safe and stimulating environment. We offer a variety of clubs and activities for all grade levels along with athletic teams in the seventh and eighth grade. Our faculty and staff work hard to instill both the educational values needed to succeed in school as well as the social values needed to succeed in life. This year we will be implementing the “LEAD” program in our school.  This program is an extension of the “Leader in Me” program at Nolley.  We are extremely excited about the possibilities that the program brings to a school.  Our attention to state standards and current educational trends allow our students to be prepared for the next level of education.

    I am both proud and honored to serve the community of New Franklin and Manchester School District.  I believe that communication and cooperation are keys to the development of each student.  I encourage all parents and community members to contact me directly if you ever have any questions and or concerns. Thank you for all of your support both past and present for our middle school.


Go Panthers!

James Miller
