My kids, nieces, and nephews have gone to Manitoba since K4 a total of 4 years. I would NOT recommend this school. They are so diorganized, no control, and the worse part is they do nothing about bullying. I recent pulled my children. I loved the teachers but who is running the school and how is a JOKE.

My daughter has been at Manitoba since K4. She's now a fourth grader and doing exceptionally well. I always feel comfortable and welcome in the building. Everyone is very friendly and the teachers are awesome. Manitoba as a fabulous music program! There are opportunities for students to take piano and drum lessons at school. There are a number of great after school activities as well.

My daughter attends Manitoba and is midway through K5. My wife and I are very pleased with the academic program and feel the diversity of the school is a plus. The staff is friendly, and there is a feeling of calm as you enter the building. We think it is one of the best in the city.

My son is completing his first year as a 5th grader at Manitoba. I am impressed at the school and how student focused it is. The kids are well-behaved and the teachers are amazing. A lot of schools cut out Art, Music, and Gym. But the school manages to have all three, which I think every child should benefit from them. I highly recommend this school to parents who are looking for a good school their kids can attend.

My son started attending in February this year after he turned three. He gets the needed attention for his speech and occupational therapy as well as other regular kindergarten classes. He is there 5 mornings a week. They also have art and music. Music! I didn't think schools offered that anymore. I have been pleased with his progress during the past two months. What a difference! His teachers are very willing to communicate with us about how he is doing on a daily basis. He is my first born and this is the school that was offered to us.

This is a great school! My daughter has attended the last two years and we could not be more pleased. there are plenty of opportunities for parent involvement. they continue to have gym, music, and art during a period of time when other public schools have been eliminating these classes to save money. the programming adheres to the standards that MPS sets forth. my daughter's teachers have offered extra challenge when she has needed it. I also like the extra music instruction that is offered. my daughter has violin instruction once a week. the onsite before and after school child care is always appreciated. I would recommend this school to any parent I talk to!
