A message from Dr. Vargas

Courtesy: David Lane/Union  Leader
This has been an exciting and motivating start to my tenure as Superintendent of the Manchester School District. As you can imagine, there are many people to meet and places to go in order to familiarize myself with the city and our schools. This month, I have witnessed many wonderful examples of teaching and learning at every level -- from our youngest students in elementary school to the students who are preparing to graduate next June. 

The conversations I’ve had and the classrooms I’ve seen so far confirm what I already knew: there are great things happening every day in Manchester schools. I’m very proud to be part of this district and have the opportunity to help every student reach his or her aspirations in education and career.

My role in this city is not only as an educational leader, but a support to the team of administrators, teachers and staff in every position across the district to accomplish the goal of helping every student succeed. We want every child to be a priority. We want every school to excel in educating our students. We want all of our families to be proud to live in Manchester with access to quality education.

I look forward to getting to know you and to work with you as we strive to make this school district a top choice for all families to meet the needs and aspirations of their children.  It is my belief that the District has the ultimate responsibility to educate our children but we can’t do it alone. Therefore, I am eager to collaborate with all citizens of Manchester, including parents, business, civic, college and university leaders, as well as all of the community organizations which make youth a priority, to achieve the best on behalf of our students.  

I welcome the opportunity to meet you in the near future to address any of your questions or concerns. Please also feel free to email me with any feedback you would like to offer on how to best begin this journey of making Manchester public schools the best in New Hampshire and the nation.
