School Reviews

Manzanola schools are one of the best in the county. The students get a lot of one on one time and extra help if needed. All the teachers are supportive to their students and push them to strive ahead and be involved in after school programs. We are a small school that allows everyone to join sports etc and do not turn anyone away that wants to learn. There are numerous students that live in other cities and come to our school due to issues with bullying etc. We have more of a diverse population than shown in this graph. There are more than one percent black students in the district.
