Manzo Elementary School

When we met Manzo Elementary School, we were struck by the massive needs of the school and the committed staff who refused to give up on it. Slated to be closed due to it's underperformance within the DISTRICT, the administration had come up with a radical way to improve scores and overall education: a greenhouse and school garden. We seized the opportunity to help the dream become reality and Manzo is now a model school nationally with a wait list to join and high test scores annually.
