  • My daughter attended Magnolia for more than four years until we pulled her out. She found that it was possible to do as little work as possible and still be praised. A loving attitude goes a long way in education, but so do high standards. I'm glad to see that the Magnolia parents responded to the call for positive reviews -- that's part of the community spirit -- and I'm sure they are heartfelt. Magnolia is a loving school, small, and inclusive. But don't be swayed by a PR campaign. Every child is different. Your child MUST be self-motivated if you expect them to do well. If they are not, they simply will not succeed -- and the teachers will praise them anyway. This is NOT a school for every child. My child left confused, far behind her peers, and ill prepared. In public school, she has caught up and finally is working to her potential. But that took a LOT of work. Magnolia was a waste of money and I regret the decision to place her there.

  • Magnolia School provided a solid education base for me, which has carried me through many subsequent educational environments and facilities. I still remember learning how to talk with fellow students and teachers in order to resolves conflicts. I learned to use "I statements," a valuable skill for me. I'm currently in seminary in California, and my learning at Magnolia School helps me have a better idea of how to be the master of my own education.

  • Magnolia School was a great place to teach and a wonderful place for my daughter to start her school career. My older children came for events and summers. It had a caring family atmosphere.

  • At Magnolia school, my two children acquired a love of learning and creative thinking. They felt a sense of ownership of their education which served them well in high school and now college. Parental involvement is a large part of the schooling and community experience. Magnolia School provides an uncommon, excellent learning environment.

  • Both my children attended Magnolia school. They are now in college. I would have been a different person if I could have attended a school like Magnolia School. This school allowed my kids to become who they were meant to be. It let them embrace learning and the teachers that facilitated it. It also showed them that they have an ability to teach others, as space was provided to have peer teaching. It prepared them for the world on many vital levels. It was not only a wonderful school experience for the kids but a loving supportive community for me. All three of us have many close friendships that were established during our years there. If this is the right fit for your family this is a great school. I recommend it.

  • We chose The Magnolia School for our children because our gifted daughter was bored in school and frustrated with the volume of busy work. The theme-based curriculum at Magnolia School allows children to go deeper into subjects. Math, science, language arts and history are all rolled into the theme, allowing kids to make natural connections, fostering critical thinking and sharpening their logic. The multi-age classrooms allow kids who are ahead to move forward, and kids who may be behind to catch up at their own pace, without stigma or fear of being 'held back.' I am amazed by the things my kids are learning - and how eager they are to share what they have learned.
