Passaic County Manchester Regional High School District


The Passaic County Manchester Regional High School District consists of a single high school, Passaic County-Manchester Regional High School, which serves a diverse student population in grades 9-12. The school faces significant challenges, with academic performance well below state averages, high levels of socioeconomic disadvantage, and struggles with attendance and graduation rates.

Passaic County-Manchester Regional High School has a student body that is 67.69% Hispanic, 16.03% African American, 11.96% White, and 2.96% Asian. However, the school's academic performance is concerning, with proficiency rates on state assessments far below the state average across all subjects and grade levels. For example, in 2022-2023, only 23.4% of 9th-grade students were proficient or better in English Language Arts, compared to the state average of 52.1%. The school's Algebra I proficiency rates were even lower, with just 6.3% of 10th-grade students and 5.4% of 9th-grade students meeting or exceeding the standard, compared to state averages of 13.2% and 19.2%, respectively.

The school's challenges extend beyond academics, with a four-year graduation rate of 80.2% and a dropout rate of 3.7%, both worse than the state averages. Additionally, the school has a high chronic absenteeism rate of 35.7%, significantly above the state average. These issues may be exacerbated by the high percentage of students (68.68%) who qualify for free or reduced-price lunch, indicating a high level of economic disadvantage among the student population. While the school's per-student spending of $13,765 is higher than the state average, it appears that more targeted interventions and support may be necessary to help the school and its students overcome these significant challenges.
