Excellent, as someone who is a teacher with multiple degrees, I wanted the best education for my son. We moved to Oakland just prior to the Covid-19 shut down and I have the utmost respect for the way that the teachers and staff went above and beyond for my second-grade son. They wanted to ensure that he felt a sense of community and that he was being reached educationally. I applaud his teachers on job well done.

MANITO is a wonderful school and the only school in Oakland I would want my children attending. The teachers go above and beyond to work with the students and really listen to parents needs. My eldest son is now at Valley Middle School. He was so well prepared because of Manito's curriculum and forward thinking programs and implementations.

We have been very happy with the education the kids have received at Manito, and Oakland is definitely a terrific town for families.

The schools lack of diversity and teacher's lack of awareness is evident in how some children are treated. Students that are from a different ethnic background do not feel easily welcomed and are easily taunted by other children and teachers if they do not "fit in". Teacher and students need diversity training and make more of an effort to appreciate other cultures and ethnic backgrounds.
