About our School

ILancer Imagen 1914, three schools consolidated to form Elkhardt School, which had a faculty of four, including the principal. In 1916, transportation was furnished to and from school by a horse-drawn wagon. Elkhardt School became Manchester District High School in 1924. The class of '25 was the first to graduate; it consisted of eight students. In the fall of 1964, the school moved to 7401 Hull Street Road, to the building that now houses Manchester Middle School. Manchester High moved to our current home, 12601 Bailey Bridge Road in the fall of 1992. From its humble beginnings, Manchester has grown into an institution that serves over 2000 students, with a faculty of 155. In addition to its outstanding academic programs, the school now offers over fifty extra-curricular activities for students, including clubs, performing arts groups, publications, and athletic teams. Manchester High School continually evolves as we strive together to uphold its long-standing tradition of excellence.
