The Success Program was created almost 20 years ago as a 9th grade transition program. Since then, the program has now developed into a “safety-net” for the entire school. The purpose of the program is to make sure that every student at Manchester High School has the resources available to ensure their success in high school. Initially, rising freshmen are recommended and/or recruited to enter the program during their 8th grade year. In addition, any freshman who is struggling throughout the year will be recruited to enter the program. All former members of the Success Program are tracked throughout their high school years until they graduate. In addition, grades are monitored for the entire student body throughout the year. Students who are struggling are offered the opportunity to enter the Success Program in order to improve their academic standing.
