Superintendent Miguel Hernandez, Ed.D

Welcome to the 2016 – 2017 School Year 

Less than a year ago, I began my tenure as Superintendent for the Manchester Regional H.S. District. My goals focused on building relationships with staff, students, and the community, developing a deeper understanding of the school district, and continuing to build on the many strengths of our school.

Due to remarkable people in our community, building positive relationships was thoroughly enjoyable. We have a committed staff who enjoy serving the students. Parents support their children, and I am appreciative of their confidence in our school. It’s been deeply rewarding to work hand in hand with a supportive board that understands the needs of both students and the community.

I am proud to be the Superintendent for the Manchester Regional High School District and look forward to what lies ahead.

This year, as we do every year, we commit ourselves to providing our students the very best educational experience possible. We will update you often through our newsletters, social media, and our school notification system. Please take a moment to visit our district website.

Have a wonderful 2016 – 2017 school year!

Dr. Miguel Hernandez

Principal Richard Ney, Ed.D.

I am pleased to welcome you to Manchester Regional High School, a unique school in a warm and friendly environment, providing a quality education to all of its students, and a school that has been listed among the best high schools in America.
Manchester Regional High School serves over 850 students from the Passaic County boroughs of Haledon, North Haledon and Prospect Park.  It is also one of only two Interdistrict Public Choice Schools in the county providing a quality college preparatory curriculum to students outside the district who want to avail themselves of this program.  One hundred four students from Essex, Bergen and Passaic Counties are enrolled in the school. 
Manchester was recognized by U.S. News and World Report on their list of Best High Schools in America for six consecutive years. This was in recognition of the Advanced Placement program and for narrowing the achievement gap between economically disadvantaged and non-economically disadvantaged students.   The School to Careers Program also earned Manchester Regional High School the title of “New Jersey Best Practices School”. 
The school has a full complement of athletic teams for all three seasons.  These include football, girls’ and boys’ soccer, volley ball, girls’ and boys’ basketball, wrestling, bowling, baseball, softball, track and field, and cheerleading. These sports accompany a wide variety of activities from Drum Corp to Environmental club, D.E.C.A., School Newspaper and Year Book along with chapters of the National Honor Society, and National Spanish Honor Society.
MRHS Channel 77 broadcasts from a state of the art TV Studio.  The community is advised of local items of interest, school news, weather, and the activities calendar.  Students write, direct, edit and produce the Morning Announcements, which are presented by student news anchors during home room.  Also included in the realm of technology are CISCO training, science and math labs with educational hardware and software and numerous elective courses centered on aspects of technology.
One of the programs that the school is most proud of is its partnership with Passaic County Community College.  Through this program, students can earn Thirty-two college level credits during the school day.  Certified MRHS teachers with advanced degrees in their subject areas are adjunct professors for the local community college.  Courses in both the humanities and mathematics provide an affordable means for students to earn college credits without leaving the school building.  The Advanced Placement courses in all four core subject areas also provide students with an opportunity to earn college credits.  Between the two programs, students can earn a total of 50 college credits.
