North Manchester Community Schools and Manchester College are located here.


North Manchester Community Schools have served the students of this community for over 37 years. Current enrollment is 1747 students. Governed by a seven-member elected Board of School Trustees, administrative duties are carried out by the Superintendent of Schools, an assistant superintendent, and seven building administrators. In addition, there are more than 250 staff members, 115 of whom are certified personnel.

The educational program of the school system is well developed and provides a desirable balance between basic education and exploratory experiences. The curriculum includes special education, vocational education, advanced placement opportunities, instruction in fine and practical arts, and a strong technology emphasis.

Manchester participates in all educational programs offered by Junior Achievement of Northeast Indiana and is a forerunner of public school involvement in the concepts of conflict resolution. All educational programs are provided for students from Kindergarten through Grade 12.

Gifted and talented elementary students may participate in special programs, and the needs of educationally handicapped students are also fulfilled. Special attention is given to children with speech and hearing difficulties.

A vocational school located nearby serves six high schools and is available to high school students and adults for practical training. For the younger children, North Manchester has a modern, fully staffed day care center and two church-affiliated nursery schools.

Manchester College is an independent, liberal arts college affiliated with the Church of the Brethren. Visit their web site to learn more about this excellent school.
