Not sure why the test scores are low since they are very good in helping students now that they have after school tutoring. My only complaint would be all the parent hours that need to be completed and the two additional cleanings. I also hope that they resolve their disciplinary issues. But I really enjoy their study trips and watching my daughter doing her projects on the computer.

Great teachers, great community. My daughter has been very happy. I like the small size, let's you really get to know teachers and the teachers know the students. The teachers really care and work hard for the kids.

I love this school. The classes are small, the school is small, the teachers know the parents and the students. It is easy for a student to get lost in a large school with too many students.

My son just graduated 8th grade after attending Manzanita for three years. They ended their school year with a week long Washington D.C trip for an awesome learning experience. Thanks to all the great teachers and staff.

as a graduate from Manzanita, i can only speak highly of this amazing school. They helped me so much not just in school work but personal problems, the teachers are easy to talk to and always have great advice. The school may be small but its wonderful.

I went to Manzanita last year but I decided to go to a bigger school because I thought I would get a better education there. I was wrong this is a great school for anyone who wants to do well in life, who wishes to succeed or for those who are giving up on themselves. they make sure your getting the education you need public schools arent best i thought i would do good in my new school but im falling behind due to lack of teacher quality even in the advanced classes. in manzanita theyll do whatever they have to do to get you to succeed

The 7th 8th grades are each only 50 students total. Each are devided into two classes making them 25 per class. The whole school is only 150 students. What the school lacks, music & language arts, it more than makes up in other areas.

Hi: The class size is 25, and there are two groups at each level- so while there are 50 students in each of the levels, there are only 25 in each room. LD

The good news is it's small and the bad news is it's small. Compared to all the other public option in WCCUSD your child will be safe and received somewhat individualized attention. There is no music or foreign language. Due the the increasing popularity of Manzanita, you will have to put in your 75 hours to even have a chance of getting in. If your child needs an option other than a huge school and you can't afford private school... this is your place.

Manzanita is a great school with a number of pluses. I am a parent of a 2nd year student. Small class sizes, good teachers,constantly being informed about the child's progress. If she doesn't do her work I'll get a phone call. Almost everything is done by parent volunteers and the students themselves. It is a great community. It helps tremendously having parents around who assist in their child's education. The teacher's actually care about students and their families and are constantly looking at ways to improve learning and to create an atmosphere for students to be creative. My daughter loves going to school!
