Manzano Day School

Joy in Learning® Since 1938

Welcome from the Head of School

For 84 years, Manzano Day School has lived our mission of being “dedicated to innovative child-centered education, excellence in teaching, and Joy in Learning to prepare children for a life of discovery and community involvement in our diverse world.” We look forward to sharing our joy in learning with you.

Students attending Manzano Day School have the opportunity to experience a strong foundation of curricular experiences that set a path for lifelong learning.  In addition to reading, writing, arithmetic, and communication skills students experience art, music, physical education, Spanish and experiential education in our garden or at Fenton Ranch in the Jemez Mountains.  

Please enjoy browsing our website for samples of the amazing faculty exhibiting excellence in teaching; students experiencing pure joy as they engage in a variety of learning experiences. We also invite you to set up a tour with our Admission Office or join us for an open house--details can be found here.
