The Manchester Regional High School District is a proud participant in the New Jersey Interdistrict School Choice Program.


Students from outside the Manchester Regional School District can choose to attend Manchester Regional High School! The program is designed to increase educational opportunities for students and their families by providing students with the option of attending a public school outside their district of residence without cost to their parents/guardians. Manchester Regional High School may accept students from other districts looking to benefit from a high quality, comprehensive education for ninth through twelfth grade students. 


Each year we have a limited number of spots available. Please refer to 2024 template below which outline how many spots will be available.  Inter-district Choice students must have a Technology course within their yearly schedule.  Beginning October 1st, the 2024-25 choice application will be available online and within the main office of our school.  All required paperwork must be returned to Mr. Banta by December 1, 2023.  Incomplete applications will be rejected.  Paperwork received after the deadline will be wait-listed.



Transportation is the responsibility of the home district (town in which you live) and all inquiries should be directed to the home districts Board of Education offices.


Manchester Regional High School will be hosting an OPEN HOUSE on October 18 at 7PM.  Please plan to arrive early.  We look forward to seeing all interested individuals attend this event!
