West High Spring Art Show 2020

Artwork will be displayed on the Manchester High School West web page all summer. It features art made by West High learners, faculty and alumni.

Every year the West High Art department has put on the Spring Art Show. Traditionally it has food, music and guest judges and it is set up in the hallway outside the library for a special ceremony. It was always open to the public on that night and in the recent past we have left it up for staff, students and district guests to access it for an entire week. This year, with COVID-19 and remote learning, we have decided to create a virtual art gallery for the work.

Congratulations Class of 2020

As we recognize the largest graduating class of New Hampshire Scholars in the program's history, it undoubtedly will go down as the most unique set of circumstances that schools and students have faced.

Terms such as remote learning, stay at home, and social distancing will be ones the Class of 2020 won't soon forget. But the 5,611 New Hampshire Scholars persevered through all of the challenges and are somehow better prepared for their next adventure.

Thank you to all of the counselors, teachers, administrators, and community partners who worked hard to recognize students virtually and in person. When students are presented their diploma wearing their NH Scholar gold medallion, it will all be worth it.

Among the many who want to congratulate the NH Scholars Class of 2020 are these tremendous supporters. Watch their special video messages.

And a special message from one of our NH Scholars graduates:

The Boys & Girls Club of Manchester announces

Paige is competing for the title of NH State Youth of the Year!

Congratulations, Jacob McClelland

Congratulations to our first Harbor Freight Fellow in New England: Jacob McClelland!

Jacob completed his internship at Werner Mazda in Manchester, NH under the mentorship of Patrick Driscoll.

What is the Harbor Freight Fellowship?

Big Picture Learning, with support from Harbor Freight Tools for Schools, has designed a new form of apprenticeships for youths and young adults who show significant potential and passion for the traditional and contemporary trades. Harbor Freight Fellows provides deep and sustaining relationships with expert mentors and access to communities of practice in their area of passion.

We support apprenticing experiences with professional trades persons at their businesses.

We will provide:

A $1,000 scholarship to the youth for 120 hours of apprenticing with a trades person Mentor.

A $500 stipend to the professional trades person Mentor.

A $500 stipend to the supporting staff member (the Advisor) at the referring school or organization.

A $250 to allowance for tools to the Fellow.

What does Jacob have to say about the internship program?

"It helped me see the options I have and it showed me what I should look for when I need to get better, like colleges and trade school. I also can better myself with Mazda ́s specified training classes that I could take. This internship showed me that I work a lot and I never complained cause it's something I wanted to do. It improved my hands-on and listening skills, and made my love and passion for my trade grow even more than it was before."

Are you a senior (or soon to be) with a deep passion for the trades? Reach out to your school counselor to learn more!
