Social Media Spotlights Student Achievement and Increases School Climate and Culture
The students and staff at Manchester Regional High School participate in positive activities and achieve amazing accomplishments on a daily basis. We have always known this to be true, however, the communities that we serve should know how incredible the MRHS students really are. It is also important to recognize our students for the meaningful endeavors they contribute to our school community. To assist us in this objective, the development of Twitter and Facebook was originated and It has resulted in a positive interaction between students, staff and community.
The social media accounts that we use serve two distinct purposes. The first is to provide important information to our communities regarding school and event information. For example, school closings, delays, event and athletic information, as well as announcements we wish to share with the community. Users of these social media platforms have shared many of our status updates so that pertinent information is spread throughout the communities.
The second purpose of our social media accounts is to spotlight the activities and accolades of our students. Mr. Wacha, Assistant Principal, posts photographs to the Twitter and Facebook accounts. This school year has already produced over 300 photos highlighting the students and their activities.
Our Twitter and Facebook accounts have been very popular with our students, our school family, and the communities we service. The rate of growth for these sites has far surpassed our initial projections. Our Facebook page speaks directly to our students, school, communities, and alumni. This page has over 970 followers and the posts that are broadcasted sometimes reach as many as 20,000 Facebook users. Our Twitter account speaks directly to our students. We have over 670 followers, mostly students, and our following is very active in re-tweeting and “liking” many of the tweets that are broadcasted. Our photographs and “happy birthday” tweets are most popular amongst the users.
We encourage you to visit our sites so that you can get a better feel as to what really occurs at Manchester on a day-to-day basis. We are tremendously proud of our students and staff, and we think that once you get a glimpse into our world through these social media sites, you will be too! Again visit: and .

Principal Richard Ney, Ed.D.

I am pleased and privileged to welcome you to what we believe will be another exciting year at Manchester Regional High School.  I especially want to welcome our new freshmen who are embarking on a brand new educational experience as high school students.  We are fortunate to have an amazing and dedicated staff, and we are welcoming nine new faculty members this year.  They are joining a staff and a student body that has accomplished great things over the years, including achieving high scores on state mandated tests and being recognized by U.S. News and World Report on their list of Best High Schools in America five consecutive times.  Thanks to the quality of education provided at Manchester Regional High School, our graduates attend some of the best colleges and universities in the nation, and last year’s graduating class earned over six million dollars in scholarships. We also have outstanding co-curricular and athletic activities, many of which achieve state recognition including our Make a Difference Club and our basketball team which won a state championship in 2015. We continue to upgrade our facilities as well.  Among other projects last year, we replaced all of the windows facing Church Street significantly improving climate and appearance.  This year we anticipate completing our locker replacement program providing our students the most up-to-date facilities to accommodate their book bags and other belongings.  I am personally privileged to be entering my 16th year serving Manchester, 12 years as an administrator and educational leader, and I continue to look forward to being part of the wonderful Manchester family.
