We have been at MSA7 for four years and absolutely love it. The teachers at the school have a deep love for teaching which resonates in the classroom and in the manner in which they treat each individual student. The Kinder teacher is an absolute gem working with each little one in her care at their level. She brings a lot to the table and she sets an amazing foundation for her students to build on. Each teacher has their unique style and it blends so well from Kinder to Fifth grade in providing a rich elementary education. From Ms. Garcia adding her Disney touch to the Kinder class to Ms. Vasquez with a Dr. Seuss bent to Ms. Toccoli adding culture and the arts into fourth grade curriculum to Ms. Bracha & Mr. Yoon preparing the 5th graders for middle school the students at MSA7 get a rich education and outlook. Ms. Atay as the computer teacher with the coding classes and Mr. Wong the PE teacher also promoting nutrition and health among the students add value to the daily school experience that is hard to find in the LAUSD school district. The addition of Ms. Alonso as the Vice Principle and Dean of Academic Studies has been a tremendous boon to the school. The enrichment that is now provided to the students through after school clubs, projects and incentives enhance the learning experience. The career days, assemblies and general respect and etiquette that are promoted serve the students well. We are so glad to be a part of the MSA7 family. Keep up the good work!

The teachers at this school MAKE this school the success it is. They are incredibly gifted, communicative and clearly love their jobs. I love that at each parent conference I have attended I am made to feel like my child has their current teachers heart.

Amount of homework: Just right

I like that they do not give the students too much homework and my kids are done in a half hour with their school work and then just need to read for 20 minutes. This way they have more time to play and be kids

Develops grit: Agree

Yes - because they do talk about careers and working through school work that might be challenging. The only reason I have it as agree is that it would be nice to have a gifted/talented teacher to help with higher achieving students. They do have an amazing program in place for kids with IEPs

My son was disrespectful to a fellow student and the teacher who observed the incident sent me an email and it was discussed immediately. There has not been a repeat incident and I think the immediate action served as a good wake up call to my child that he should always consider his words.

The school dealt with a student having leukemia by creating a crazy hat day and teachers reading books such as The Lemonade Club to build empathy and compassion. A letter was also sent home to the parents and it included book suggestions and talking points.

At the start of the school year the students are given a booklet that outlines behavior that is expected from the students. And the kids are held and rewarded for being responsible, safe etc

My son enrolled to MSA-7 when he was in kindergarten and we were really happy in this school.They had college and career days, science fairs, and a lot of other STEM and College related activities. All teachers and admin were really caring and supportive. Unfortunately we needed to move from LA but still missing Magnolia community. Thank you MSA-7 teachers and admin for your dedication.

Thank you to Ms. Vasquez for being so attentive and patient with my daughter. After a terrible experience with her kindergarten teacher in a different school, my daughter once again became excited about learning. Ms. Vasquez allowed my daughter to express herself fully, and in turn my baby girl thrives. Thank you Ms. Vasquez.

The school has a booklet of rules or guidelines that must be followed throughout the year. These include, honesty, generosity, helpfulness, kindness... Students are positively reinforced throughout the year. Children are aware of the rules initially, therefore are held responsible for not following guidelines. This creates a sense is independence as well as responsibility for their actions.
