• Welcome to the Manchester Memorial School website.  I am very excited to welcome you to this amazing school community, and I am so fortunate to work with all of the talented staff members, amazing children, and dedicated parents of Manchester-by-the-Sea.  We all work diligently together to make Memorial School truly the BEST school it can possibly be, and we are so proud of the beautiful building that we learn and grow in every day!

    The Memorial website is a great place to find important information and news about our school.  We constantly update the website to ensure that the information is accurate and current.  Please spend some time perusing the various links for families, students, and staff members. This site is constantly changing so be sure to check back often for new links, school news, and media capturing all of the amazing things that happen at our school each day.  I do believe that educating children takes more than just a school – it takes the entire community.  My hope is that this website will help to communicate what is happening in our school so that families and the community can continue to take an active role in their child(ren)’s education.

    Our goal is to maintain a school environment where children have their individual needs met, feel safe, and develop a life-long love of learning.  I hope our students look forward to coming to Memorial School to learn everyday just as much as I do.  Memorial School is an amazing place to learn and grow for students, staff, and parents alike!

    As I continue to make all administrative decisions in the best interest of our students, I welcome you to contact me should you have any questions, comments, compliments for our staff, or other feedback.  Thank you for visiting our website, and welcome to the Memorial School family!  It is my honor to work on behalf of your children.

    Best regards,

    John J. Willis
