Welcome to Manatee Elementary School

  • Administrators wearing face masks and maintaining social distance stand on the front steps of Manatee Elementary  

    Located on the east side of historic Bradenton, Manatee Elementary School seeks to create and maintain a challenging and safe learning environment that encourages high expectations through rigorous, engaging instruction while exploring the Arts. We strive to create and maintain partnerships with our families and the community while actively involving students in the development of self-confidence to pursue their goals.

    We are proud of our history and are moving into the future with new and exciting endeavors. Our students benefit from us being a 1:1 school. This means our classrooms are equipped with some of the latest technology to enhance their learning experiences in all academic areas.

    Looking ahead to August 2020, we will be Southwest Florida's first Community Partnership School which will provide many additional services to our students and their families. We will also transition to a visual and performing Arts School with an amazing theater where we hope to hold many spectacular performances.
