Strong community partnerships and collaboration bring unique and effective learning opportunities to Manitou Park. Part of the Tacoma Whole Child Initiative (a partnership with Tacoma Public Schools and the University of Washington Tacoma) Manitou Park teachers and staff receive guidance, support, and tools to meet academic, social and emotional needs of students. Partners such as community members, district staff, Read2Me, Mt.
