    Our Schools
    The Manchester Essex Regional School District has consistently and proudly been among the highest-performing districts in the state. It is a growing district with a student population of 1560 and a commitment to maintaining low student-teacher ratios. In addition to a robust core curriculum that balances high expectations for student achievement with the needs of the whole child, we offer specialty programming and a variety of twenty-first century learning opportunities, such as: Elementary Foreign Language, Integrated Pre-K, the SWING Program, Middle School Engineering, Project Adventure, FIRST Robotics, ASR -Authentic Science Research, a Nationally Recognized Debate Team, an Award Winning Drama Program, and the Green Team & Green Scholars.


    MERSD is comprised of four schools. Memorial Elementary and Essex Elementary are neighborhood schools that serve grades PreK-5. The Manchester Essex Regional Middle School serves grades 6 through 8 and shares an impressive new facility, recognized for its utilization and commitment to green technology, with Manchester Essex Regional High School, which serves grades 9 through 12. Our district realizes the importance of professional development and renewal, and, as such, provides staff development through the Northshore Education Consortium, the Northeast Professional Development Consortium, Salem State Collaborative for Interdisciplinary Studies, and the UMASS Lowell STEM Initiative.

    MERSD is an inclusive school district; as such, we are a collaborative culture that welcomes all members into our learning community. Recognizing that students share more similarities than differences, our learning community respects each individual’s unique contributions. It is expected that all adults share the responsibility for providing every student with access to and participation in high quality education.

    Our Community
    The Manchester Essex School District serves the communities of Manchester and Essex, located on Cape Ann in Essex County, twenty-five miles north of Boston. The towns have a combined population of 8,640 people, 5136 in Manchester and 3,504 in Essex, as of the 2010 Census. In 2000, the two communities voted to regionalize their schools, opening up a wealth of opportunity that is currently shaping the future of our students….expanding academic, athletic and social offerings….forming a partnership to ensure a legacy of outstanding education and excellence. Though the towns enjoy unique identities, they have in common the same priority: a desire to provide the best possible resources to facilitate their children’s growth and prepare them for the 21st century….at home, in school, and in the community. The realization of this goal is dependent upon the strong involvement and support that comes from parents, businesses, clubs and organizations, other branches of Town government and the many individuals who do not have children in the system but believe that the community is only as strong as its educational institutions. Hard to measure, but definitely present, is an unusual and enthusiastic willingness to work together to provide the resources necessary to prepare our young people for productive, fulfilling lives.
