The teachers and staff truly go out of their way to make you feel welcome at Magma Ranch. The new principal is on a mission to establish Magma as a "School of Excellence" and his vision shines with the attitudes of the students: they want to be at school and are hungry to learn. It is refreshing to see so much positivity at school!
awesome!! i love it! we moved here & my boys started school 2 yrs ago mid way through the year & they were welcomed with open arms & adjusted very well. their grades are great & have never been bullied. everytime i have ever had a question about anything i have gotten quick responses & help in every way.
This school is so horrible! I agree with what some of the other parents said about the bullies getting away with it. My child is being bullied and the school is just blowing me off... They speak to me like i am stupid, they talk down on me, don't listen to what i have to say and pretty much takes the word of the bully even though i have witnesses.. I am taking my kids out of this school and would NEVER reccomend this school!!!
This school is horrible with bullying!! Every time something happens to one of my children nothing happens to the one doing the bullying. There are always other "witnesses" that go against what my child says and the kids that I have talked to have the same story as my child. So "witnesses" are believed over other children? Something does not add up right....Then to make matters worse when one of my children defend themselves then they get a referral because they fought back??? Well what does it say to a child when they are bullied and the people that are suppose to be there for them don't listen, this is just sad.. I would not recommend this school to anyone, there are a few teachers that are good, but overall experience, your better off homeschooling or doing on-line schooling for them, they might learn more that way. At this point if I could get away with not putting a star then that's what I would do!
This school system SUCKS!! I just dont know where to begin!! Just so dissatisfied with the school. Ever since my kids started going to school here I have never been satisfied with any of the schools that the Florence Unified School District has sent them! we went from Walker Butte to Copper Basin to Circle Cross to finally Magma Ranch! my kids have bounced around more than a "bouncey house" , every time an issue came up with my kids being "picked on or bullied" by other kids, my kids were never give a chance to tell their side of the story and the other kids stories were over ruled by my kids story, know matter how many witnesses were around and spoke up for them! It's sad......a sad situation at times!! it seemed like know matter who i spoke to through out the school system, i was ignored!! i'm sure this will not b posted and ignored once again!! Just SAD!!!
I absolutly love this school. I am in 7th grade and this school is the best one that I have been to so far. The teachers and principal are strict, but not too much. I would recommend this school to anyone that is in elementary or middle school!!!!
Magma is a great place to have your children. The leadership is fantastic. Most of the teachers are very good and the ones that aren't don't get to stay very long. Mrs. Hendry really cares about your kids.
