About our 1:1
In alignment with the District’s mission, “the mission of Manchester Regional High School is to produce respectful, responsible and well-rounded graduates who possess the knowledge and skills to become contributing members of society and life-long learners”, the vision of technology and the goal of the District’s 1-to-1 initiative is to create model 21st learning environments that transform the teaching and learning process for all students at MRHS to a more student-centered, teacher-facilitated experience that will lead to higher levels of engagement, empowerment and, ultimately, academic achievement.
This will be accomplished by providing technology-rich, 21st Century classroom environments and curriculum-aligned resources, a state-of-the-art network infrastructure, and ongoing, high quality professional development to all MRHS teachers and administrators to enable them to lead and teach in these environments.
As a result, students will be empowered to assume responsibility for their learning by applying new and existing technologies to solve real world problems while simultaneously expanding their global and cultural awareness and developing essential skills necessary for college- and career- readiness. Furthermore, ongoing introduction of computer adaptive learning software will allow the instructional staff of MRHS to blend instruction in order to create a school without walls or time constraints. Essentially, MRHS will become a school that offers students an education that never closes and that can be accessed anytime and from anywhere.
