Superintendent Miguel Hernandez, Ed.D

Dear Parents, Students, Staff and Community Members,
Welcome to the 2018 – 2019 school year.  Here’s hoping that everyone enjoyed a relaxing summer break with family and friends.  I am excited about the start of this school year!  We have wonderful opportunities ahead to make a difference in the lives of children.  Achieving student success continues to be our goal which will take a commitment to continuous learning on the part of talented motivated staff, informed parents and communities that are involved and values education.  I am committed to making sure our students receive the best possible education at MRHS. 
We’ve had a busy summer, getting ready for students to return.  We have renovated science rooms, we have painted classrooms, and we have replaced furniture and re-polished floors along with our routine summer projects to ensure a smooth start to the school year. 
For the 2018 – 2019 school year there will be one major enhancement that students and teachers will encounter.  They will all be issued a Chromebook which they will need for everyday use in the classroom.  This is the last phase of a three-year goal to fully implement a school-wide 1:1 initiative with Chromebooks.  We will be training teachers how to effectively and efficiently embed technology into the daily curriculum.
Along with this initiative, we will hold mandatory parent meetings which will explain our technology policy and the use of Chromebooks.  Please look out for our announcement regarding these meetings.
I am also proud to announce our administrative change for the new school year.  MRHS will open this year with a new principal, Mr. John Coviello.  Mr. Coviello comes to MRHS with experience as both a vice principal and principal.  Please join me in extending best wishes to him for a productive school year. 
Manchester Regional High School District is a district that strives for excellence and realizes that we all need to work together to provide the best education possible.  I encourage all parents to stay involved in your child’s education.  When your child succeeds, we all succeed because of the contributions young minds can make to our society and the communities in which we live. 
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

Principal John Coviello

Dear Parents and Guardians,
It is with great pride that I introduce myself as the new Principal of Manchester Regional High School and I am incredibly thankful for the opportunity to serve your communities as an educational leader.  I remember feeling a tremendous sense of joy when I was asked to become a member of the MRHS Family this summer. This was followed by an immediate sense of commitment to ensuring the continued success of your children, supporting the growth of your school, and forging lifelong relationships with all members of your communities.  I pledge to serve your children to my utmost abilities every day, keeping them safe, ensuring they are provided with the finest education on a daily basis and, most importantly, providing them with the best experience possible in an environment that is welcoming, fun, and supportive.
I come to MRHS with fifteen years of public school service.  Seven of those years were spent serving as an educational leader.   During that time I was honored to serve diverse communities of people who were very supportive of their children and who allowed me to learn and grow with them.  I served in all administrative capacities working with my team of colleagues to improve test scores and grades, reduce bullying, introduce new student programming, and create strong relationships with parents and community to make school climate and culture as positive as possible.  Prior to my administrative experience I taught multiple subjects and courses as a special education and social studies teacher for many years.
My educational background begins with Montclair State University where I earned my BA and immediately entered the field of teaching.  While working, I completed my MA in Educational Leadership at Montclair State University and my M.Ed. in Special Education at William Paterson University.  It is my obligation to be a lifelong learner in order to always serve your children with a growth mindset. I also strive to continually apply what I learn to my practice and share this learning with my teaching staff so that we can grow and develop as a team.  
I look forward to getting to know you during the upcoming school year.  Our business is education, but the foundation of that business is relationships.  I could not be more excited to create new relationships with you, your children, and our faculty and staff.  “A person never stands as tall as when they kneel to help a child” –Anonymous.  With that being said, I am so proud to be part of an organization that clearly takes the time to help their children every day.  Please feel free to contact me at any time via e-mail, telephone, or by scheduling an appointment to meet with me in person at the school.  2018-2019 promises to be an exciting year of learning, fun, and excitement for our Falcons. I promise to do everything in my power to help them soar.  Have a healthy, safe, and wonderful school year!
