New Student Registration

Students in Manchester are assigned to schools geographically.Our "school look-up" tool is in the process of being updated so that search results reflect the new feeder pattern that is going into effect September 2017. In the meantime, the best way to accurately determine all of your assigned schools is to enter your address here to find your neighborhood elementary school and use the feeder pattern chart to determine your middle and high school. If you still have questions please call the school district office at (603) 624-6300. 
 

Registration for kindergartners and incoming first graders takes place in the spring for the following September. Registration days will be advertised in the media and on the school district website. Students must be 5 years old by SEPTEMBER 30 in order to register for kindergarten. Your child will also need to have a complete physical exam, or an appointment to have one, before starting school. 

If you are new to the district and have a child with Special Needs or Limited English Proficiency, your child may be assigned to a magnet program in another school. However, you should still register at your neighborhood school. Also, at the time of registration, you will be able to inform the school of any desired electives, if applicable, such as band or chorus.
