Dear Parents, Students, Staff and Community Members,
A warm welcome to our students and families as we enter the 2017 – 2018 school year.  Our school is ready to go! This summer we worked hard to prepare for a great school year.  Our staff is eager to care for, support and challenge each student to pursue excellence.
Our district goals, which can be found on the district website, guides our work and holds us accountable to the promise of educational excellence.  This year, in support of the district goals and our commitment to excellence, we will continue to invest in the following:  
    • High quality instructional practices
    • School-wide professional learning communities
    • Coordinated academic, social, emotional and behavioral support for students
    • Increase use of instructional technology 
Our teachers, staff, administrators and Board of Education all share the common goal of providing an outstanding level of education to all of our students.  Together as a school and community we can and will achieve great things for our students.  To that end, I encourage all parents to partner with the school to ensure student success.
I thank you for your continued support of the school district. For more information concerning all MRHS activities and programs, please check the district website at or visit our social media pages at and

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.
