High School Principal


Welcome to the online home of Manchester High School in New Franklin, Ohio!  Manchester has many proud traditions and a long history of high achievement in academics, the arts and athletics.  Our students benefit from high quality, dedicated teachers and staff, a small community that supports the district, and a strong network of outside entities that bring global opportunities and technologies into our classes.


MHS offers a rigorous college prep curriculum, numerous electives, and a supportive environment that encourages students to create meaningful connections and get involved in the wide variety of extra-curricular activities that are offered ( over 80% of our students are involved in athletics, a club or other extra-curricular activity.)


Students can choose from five AP courses, a wide variety of College Credit classes, Credit Flex, ACT Prep, earn a Bilingual Seal of Literacy, Honors Diploma and other offerings that greatly enhance their college readiness or employment prospects.  A Career-Based work program is also available for Juniors and Seniors, and we are proud to be designated as a “Purple Star” school for our “commitment to students and families connected to our nation’s military”.   We also have an outstanding relationship with our vocational resources at the Portage Lakes Career Center, where students can get hands-on experiences in a wide variety of career-technical programs to get a jump start in their chosen industry.


Please reach out if you have any questions, and thank you for visiting!
