The elementary years are an exciting time filled with new adventures, different people and lots of fun. These years are also crucial to the development of critical academic and social skills. Our school staff play an essential role in ensuring that students receive the support, guidance and high quality education they need during this pivotal time in their lives.

The Manheim Elementary School team is made up of a group of highly-qualified, dedicated individuals who are devoted to helping each learner reach his or her fullest potential. Managing an elementary school family is not easy, but our awesome staff is up for the challenge!

We encourage you to get to know our staff and we look forward to working together to make your child’s elementary years the best ones yet!
