Manzano Day School gave me the foundation to be an engaged learner,

a curious citizen, and a compassionate community member and for that I will always be thankful.”

- Katie Ogawa, Trustee and Alumna Class of 2003

When our children are happy, learning, and engaged,

it makes everything important in life radiate!

- Shari Stewart, Teacher and Parent of 2 students

My 25 years teaching at Manzano Day School enabled me to share with so many students the "Joy in Learning" which our school embodies.

As the Alumni Liaison,reconnecting with former students gives me the opportunity to see what awesomeexperiences our students are achieving in their lives as they become young adults.
