Excellent school that teaches each student based on their individual needs. Staff listens to the parents and students and encourages their input. Facility is always more that clean and the meals are healthy and yummy!
Manzanita tries to do its best for the children in their care. I would like them to take a look at the success of their students at graduation from high school. Please study if the rigorous middle school demands might possible "burn out" the students so as to not be high achievers when they leave.
One of the reasons our family moved to Gridley was because of Manzanita Elementary - and we haven't regretted our decision. Our daughter is thriving, excelling and enjoying school! We love the atmosphere, the principal, the teachers, the academic standards and have absolutely no negative criticism. We love Manzanita!
Manzanita is a high achieving school that sets high expectations for all students. The quality of education is a 5 star even by itself, but the extra curricular activities, parental involvement, and postive atmosphere are a wonderful bonus. We absolutely love this school!!
