Overall I think this is a good school the teachers are friendly and knowledgeable. However the principal is the most unfriendly, rude and unprofessional person I have ever met. This is the first school where I have not seen the principal interact with the parents and the students in the mourning. She passes the students and doesn't even say good mourning she just complains about them being in the way. I think this school would be much better with a more compassionate and friendly Principal and administrative staff.

Great school with positive communication between the faculty and parents. The school is in great and safe neighborhood.

First year at Manatee and both my son and I LOVE it! His first grade teacher - Mrs. Bauer - was instrumental in catching him up (poor experience in a Broward school for Kindergarten). He is more than ready to go to 2nd grade now. Also, the aftercare program that Ms. Patty runs is AMAZING! My son doesn't want to leave at the end of the day. He is also enrolled in the summer camp and I can't say enough wonderful things! My son loves getting up and going to camp every morning! Thank you Manatee! We love you!!!!!

This year my 3rd grade son had a great reading teacher that had to leave at the at the beginning of the year for personal reasons, the replacement is a young teacher with little experience that cannot handle the kids as she should. There are a few teacher that are rude with the kids (computer and media) and even the people from the cafeteria always look upset. Coming from out of state I really noticed the difference, Manatee is a good school but definitely could be better.

Overall school is great. Some great teachers and some not so great teachers. The current principal is unprofessional. Wonderful students!

I think manatee is a great school with great edjucation and safety.There are some great Manatee teachers however some of the staff can be very rude and use foul language and make fun of the kids especialy if they are shy or very smart .

I am a former teacher who worked under the current principal there at Manatee and I must say that she is an asset to any school or organization she chooses to work for. She is truly dedicated and highly capable of pushing those children to new heights. She also remembers that they are children and need that nurturing that the parent spoke about earlier; addiontally her high expectations for staff along with her support adds to the rapport she had always had as a leader. I am proud to see her excelling as I always knew she would.
