Senior Service! Spring at MHS Manchester Local Schools

Superintendent's Message

Dr. James Robinson



Welcome to Manchester Local Schools, the home of the Manchester Panthers.  I am very happy that you are visiting our district web site, and I hope you find the information you are looking for in Panther Country.  Our Board of Education, Certified, and Classified staff are very proud of the students who enter our school every day and advance through the rigors of our curriculum at each grade level.  Manchester students are well prepared for life outside of school due to a dedicated professional staff and it starts upon entrance as an elementary student and proceeds right onto graduation.  Our elementary school, Nolley, was one of only nine schools in the State last year to be recognized as a “National Blue Ribbon School.”  Students then matriculate onto Manchester Middle School, which has been recognized as one of very few middle schools involved with the national LEAD program.  Students then move onto Manchester High School, which was recognized as a ‘National Bronze Medal’ winner by U.S. News and World Report, to prepare students for life after public education.  Our students choose many walks of life from college, work, and the armed forces but more importantly they are prepared and discerning citizens.


One last item that should be mentioned revolves around school safety, which is always on everyone’s mind today.  Manchester Local Schools has partnered with the Ohio Department of Education’s Safer Schools Program.  Safer Schools Ohio is a multi-agency effort created to assist schools in continuously improving the safety for our students.  By calling or texting the hotline at 1-844-SAFEROH (1-844-723-3764) you can report anything that is suspicious or endangering you or your school.  Words that I cannot emphasize enough are “If You See Something—Say Something.”   If you have any further questions about our system, please feel free to contact my office at (330)882-6926.
