Go Green. Go Manzo.
At Manzo, we empower children to take what they're learning in the classroom and use it in their daily lives. With innovative math and science initiatives and project based curriculum, our students are encouraged to use their knowledge and experience to promote a more sustainable environment at home and in their community. As an award-winning Eco School, we teach students to not only care for the earth, but also cultivate it by incorporating gardening skills as part of our core curriculum.
Go Hands-On Learning. Go Manzo.
Our commitment to experiential learning, including a hands-on Ecology project complete with on-site garden, greenhouse and animal habitat, gives students the tools to think critically and develop a lifelong passion for learning. By combining interactive learning with green living, gardening and composting, we provide innovative ways to teach and learn cooperation, problem solving and responsibility. In addition, our curriculum allows students to learn basic business and applied math skills in a fun, creative atmosphere.
