Manzanita SEED is a TK-5 public elementary school in the vibrant neighborhood of San Antonio/Fruitvale. Our school offers a 50/50 dual immersion education in Spanish and English to all of our students. Our vision is to partner with families, community members and students to create an environment that enables children to become bilingual, creative, thoughtful, and self-motivated learners. We nurture a culture of mutual respect and multiculturalism, where dialogue among students and adults is central to learning. At Manzanita SEED, students exercise their curiosity and voice, challenge themselves and each other academically, and develop their sense of responsibility to transform their school, community, and world. At Manzanita SEED Elementary, we provide a healthy, nourishing environment for every child to develop strong roots in the major languages and cultures of our community. We prepare students to branch out into the world as bilingual and bi-literate leaders and life-long learners. At SEED, children gain an understanding of and respect for themselves, their community, and the world.
