Principal's Message

“Welcome to Manzanita Elementary School! Manzanita Elementary School has always been regarded as a premier school, earning numerous state-level accolades. We’re very proud of this longstanding tradition of excellence, and we welcome you to our school’s website.

Some of our recent awards have included:

Exemplary School 1999-2000
A-Plus School 2001-2002
Performing Plus School 2007-2008
Excelling School 2008-2010

Our staffs’ dedicated efforts, coupled with strong community and parental support, contribute to our overall success, positive reputation, and consistent achievement. We are very proud of our tradition of excellence, and we strongly feel that our school is a wonderful place for children to learn and grow.

Manzanita is an all-day kindergarten through 5th grade school with an established team of outstanding educators who are truly committed to our 790 students. We are also a proud member of Kingman Unified School District #20 in Kingman, Arizona.

Manzanita Elementary School offers many rigorous academic programs that are designed to address the individual differences and needs of our students. We offer self-contained accelerated/gifted classrooms in first through fifth grade and a magnet program for deaf and hard-of-hearing students.

As you navigate around our website, you will see students developing their talents and skills through participation in choir, drama, band, Art Masters, student council, in-school interventions, after-school tutoring, chess, yearbook, and garden club. We believe that every child can learn and that children learn best when there is a strong partnership between parents and teachers.

We encourage you to explore Manzanita School’s website and become familiar with all that we offer. We welcome your involvement and participation in our great school and look forward to working with you and your child as we strive toward an academically successful 2020-2021 school year.”
