About Manzanita Campus
Our Manzanita campus is the original home of Anneliese Schools. While walking through the beautiful corridors decorated with one-of-a-kind art and wood carvings, you can feel the 50-year tradition of education on this campus. This one-acre property located in Central Laguna was once the home of Hollywood’s finest. The impeccably landscaped gardens and unique classrooms adorned with art from all over the world, create an ideal learning environment for children.
The presence of Anneliese, the founder of the Anneliese Schools, is evident on this cozy, yet stimulating campus. From her powerful storytelling and puppet show activities to her multilanguage circles, these group settings are meant to impart powerful learning opportunities around academic and social-emotional topics in a playful and nurturing manner. We graciously accept children from Kindergarten through second grade at which point we transition them to the Willowbrook Campus.
The school calendar below contains an outline of all significant dates for the current school year, including holidays observed, school shows and events, and days off for staff development.

The Value of Whole Child Education
At Anneliese Schools, we believe that there are so many parts of a child that contribute to who they are as a person. We design a learning environment that awakens and cultivates the infinite potential of the child’s mind. By teaching to nine different intelligences, we develop the education of the Whole Child, ensuring that each student is a well-rounded, confident, independent learner who thinks deeply and critically, takes risks, and grows in their humanity.
