This is a hidden gem and a school that does amazing things with very little resource. Ms Spencer, the principal, is also a gem and does even more with even less.

The principal of Manzanita Community School is the weak link of this school. I have never seen such a substandard level of professionalism as Eyana Spencer exhibits, and a blatant lack of respect for others. Eight people have quit in six months,... more

Is there someone at this school who you want to say "thanks" to?

About this school

Manzanita Community is a small school in the heart of the Fruitvale. We have seventeen teachers and around 326 students. Our school is focused on the whole child as well as strong academics. We try to have small classes of twenty to twenty-five students in all grades. When possible, our teachers will "loop" with students, which mean they will stay with their class for two years. We have an after school program to support our most struggling students in the second through fifth grades with homework help and intervention. We also have a strong health and wellness policy that includes weekly P.E. classes for all students, a no chips, candy, or soda policy at lunch, a daily salad bar, a school nurse on site four days a week, and a weekly Farmers' Market for parents and community. Our school is a uniform school; students can wear blue or white polo shirts, white button down shirts, with blue bottoms (not jeans) and tennis shoes everyday.
