New Manchester High School offers unique experiences throughout the year. Some are learning opportunities and class bonding, while some are just plain fun!

Freshman Orientation: During the first week of August, before school starts, all freshman participate in an orientation that includes campus and classroom tours.

Class Meetings: Class meetings are held several times a year and often include speakers who talk about study skills, social media responsibility, and character development.
