Our school is located at 550 Lowell Street in Manchester, New Hampshire. Our elementary school (K-5) has an enrollment of approximately 500 students. We believe that all students are capable of learning and that they deserve to be challenged to the highest possible achievement. Students are active participants with their parents in promoting their social, academic, and emotional growth. We strive to provide a safe and secure environment that is conducive to learning and we continue to encourage parents to actively participate in their child's education.

Together we can make our school #1. We have a talented and dedicated staff that work extremely hard at McDonough School. The Responsive Classroom Curriculum is part of every classrooms' daily routine. Each classroom starts the day with a morning meeting to share experiences and to help prepare for the day ahead. We also have many extra-curricular programs. We have our LIM (Leader In Me) slips which are given every Friday to the students who have shown to follow one of the 7 habits and also have a travel basketball team and cheerleaders.

We are very proud of our school and our students. Together, we make McDonough a great place to be at! If you have any questions or would like to know more about McDonough School please contact us at 603-624-6373.
