Manzanita Community 2

Posted January 30, 2015
- a teacher
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, morale is terrible, children are constantly suspended according to the principal's mood on any given day, and there is never a day without drama or chaos. How can adults teach children to respect others if they are not expected to live up to this expectation themselves? Most of the teachers are excellent with the exception of a few who seem to believe that shame is a way to motivate students. Unfortunately, even with the passionate teachers, they are only as good as their conflict on any given day with the principal, which seems to be constant among staff. The children feel the stress. I give this school one star for the excellent teachers and one star for the great computer lab. I would never send my child there.
