Absolutely wonderful. Both academically and personally our child has blossomed. The children, teachers and atmosphere are comletely geared to each child reaching their potential and beyond. Our son LOVES to go to school each day! Can't say enough about our experience at this school.

We have been so happy with our child's progress at Manzanita. Kids are able to learn at their own pace and be themselves while developing a true love for learning.

Excellent school! Our child loves going to school and is learning at a rate we haven't seen in his four years of public education. The teachers motivate the kids with hands-on lessons that are interesting and fun!

My granddaughter s progress in all areas of reading, writing, math and science skills, in addition to what she has experienced in the arts, has allowed her to excel in whatever she has tried to do in her life. I am sure this self-confidence is due in large part to Manzanita School and its wonderful teachers who value her for who she is, encourage her natural development, and allow her to grow in all aspects of her being.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
