Manzanita Mustangs are College Bound
Manzanita Elementary is a school of excellence where every student, in all capacities, is highly valued. With 90% of our students socioeconomically disadvantaged and 25% learning English as their second language, the entire school community is committed to our students finishing their elementary education with their 21st Century skills in place guaranteeing their future success. Our three-fold goal focuses on the whole child through nutrition, physical exercise and academic instruction. We are most proud of our “What I Need Now” (WINN) program, which targets achievement in ELA and math. We feel that WINN, our model practice, is an exemplary program. Through our daily instructional practices, which includes our WINN time, students in Tier I receive enrichment activities, Tier II specialized support or if in Tier III, intensive intervention. We are proud of our current journey towards closing the achievement gap for all students at Manzanita and assert that our innovative WINN will develop inquisitive and versatile life-long learners who will achieve their academic potential.
