Guiding each learner along an educational journey toward a meaningful life
Welcome to JCS Manzanita
As part of the JCS Family, JCS Manzanita operates out of two locations in La Mesa, Jackson Drive and Parkway Drive. All of our programs are well established with credentialed teachers that have been serving our students for many years.
With several distinct programs to serve students of all grade levels, we are proud to have student-centered classes, dedicated and passionate teachers, and an amazing community of students and families. Our school encourages students and parents to partner with us in learning, giving students the opportunity to develop self-confidence as they understand their own strengths and weaknesses and become self-directed learners.
Programs We Offer
JCS Manzanita serves students in grades TK through 12th, and offers three unique programs giving parents choice in the amount of time their students spend in the classroom and at home. In the Academies, students attend up to four days a week, with Friday as a learn at home day. While in the Home Study program, a student learns at home under the guidance of a parent with optional Friday learning centers and field trips. Credentialed teachers create assignments, oversee the learning, and provide instruction in all of our programs.
