From the Principal

Welcome to Manchester Elementary School, Home of the Shiners!

Manchester Elementary provides a great small school environment with small classes and a family atmosphere which fosters student growth.   We strive to create a great learning experience for our students through hands on learning experiences and community partnerships.    Starting in Kindergarten students are asked to solve challenging real world problems in the fields of Engineering, Medicine and Computer Science through our Project Lead The Way Curriculum.

In addition to our quality classroom instruction, we offer a variety of extra curricular activities including: Basketball, Volleyball, Cheer, Robotics, Computer Club, Garden Club, Student Council and others.     

Manchester Elementary is a great place for kids to Grow, Excel, and Achieve!
