Welcome to the Manning! We begin each day with a morning pledge in front of the building, setting our intentions to do our best and work together before entering school for the day. Our instructional focus is on higher order thinking skills with an inclusion program that supports success for all of our children. Our small size allows us to develop meaningful relationships with students so that we can individualize our instructional strategies and students’ social development. We are supported by an active Parent Council and powerful partnerships with the Responsive Classroom, Playworks, and the Faulkner Hospital, among others. Students are offered science, library, art, physical education, and music each week.
School hours: 9:30 to 4:10 PM
Manning Elementary School
130 Louders Lane
Jamaica Plain, MA 02130
Located in the quiet residential “Moss Hill” neighborhood of Jamaica Plain, the Manning Elementary School grounds include an outdoor classroom, new playground and a basketball court.
During the year, the Manning hosts special events such as Birthday Book assemblies, Walk for the Arts, and Discovery Day. We go on field trips to the Science Museum, the State House, Paul Revere’s House, and many other places. Each week, one student receives our “Turtle Award” and one student is named “Player of the Week,” for displaying good character and sportsmanship.
