When I first came to this school discipline was apply and students didn't do as they please, you were able to see how everyone was doing their job but as the time passed all you can see is chaos and reckless there is not order after school and the students safety is very low. School should provided more security for our kids taking into consideration that they are lacking a lot of stuff that other schools benefit from. That's why i move my kid from here, students safety should be taken more seriously.

I think this school is great, the teachers are friendly and care about the kids and their schooling. When a child drops below a c in their grades they are required to take tutoring in that class to bring it up. They have many after school clubs and sports activities as well as frequent field trips some are just for good behavior and entertainment based instead of merely the requisite learning ones. It is a small school which makes it easier on new students and much less stressful than a big school would be.

So far MSA 1 is great! Its our first year here, we like evything about this school. School safety is awesome, the teachers are great. The best thing ttht everyone wears uniform, the day the students have a free dress day, to me they look weird with out uniform. Overall im in love with this school.

This is a great school in my opinion. It can ensure you your child's safety and education. I was here for 4 years and never had any problems with the teachers. All the teachers there are willing to help and WILL teach.

When Magnolia had growing pains (having more than doubled due to lack of good public middle & high schools in Santa Clara), and some parents complained consistently, they were heard. This is a major difference thanks to being a public charter. The management moved swiftly to incorporate parent requests, brought in new leadership and replaced some teachers. This never happened in our old public school.

it is a great school where there is a safe enviornment and great teachers. The classes are great there is always something new to learn.The teachers help the students with the lessons if they dont understand them and make the lessons easy to learn. There are many diferent classes and after school activities for everyones taste. I like that everyone can express their opinion for many topics or school related things. i like that the school wants to know the opnions of the students and pearents in order to improve things.

Wonderful school. My kid studies hard to keep up with the best student in her classroom. Competition brings success. Success brings better standards. They also play volleyball, chess many games and activities, picnics. Teachers and students are so dedicated. I am a happy parent.

All I can say is that school is very outstanding... I have been here for 4 years, and I'm enjoying it. Everyone is very friendly and the teachers are always happy to help you! The teachers would sometimes crack a funny joke or story to make us feel at ease. The school rules help us keep delinquents out of the way! The teachers give us helpful notes and study guides to help us prepare for tests. Along with fun, suspenseful review games.

Magnolia Science academy is definately a school to go to. The teachers don't only teach us academically, they also help build our character. I'm currently a senior and I've grown to be someone who works hard for everything because of the help of the caring teachers we have.

Oh what a school. I really love that I chose over the other one for my son. If they could only be in a somewhat bigger place, it could have been perfect. And by the way, the administration treats everybody with respect, regardless. Thanks MSA.

I have nothing but good things to say about this school. THe teacher support and the mentoring the staff has provided for my child is priceless...my child is attending MSA-1 and has made consistent progress. The dean and teachers are all open and keep us parents informed throughout the year. I highly recommend this school to any parent who wants their child to succeed in all academic areas as well as in physical education and extra curricular activites. Actually my child is fully involved in the school that he now has higher aspirations than I could ever hope for. Thank you MSA-1

I love this school. I highly recomend it for any kid. The teachers are great and they teach you very carefully. This is a very exellent school. I had only been months in this school and i already think great of it. The classes have a short amount of students and that is great like that students pay more attention to their teachers and the teachers help more the students. Everything in this school is awesome including staffs, teachers, principle, dicipline..etc. I go to MSA-5 in hollywood and I go to 6th grade and i think i'm learning alot and i love that. Also i love the idea that you could check your grades online and see how you are going like that if you are failing you already know what to bring up and whaen the report cards come you get all A's. I extremely recomend this school..

MSA-Reseda is a Great School. I have two children in 6th and 8th grade. The teachers and administration are very cordial and friendly. The office staff is great! The school offers many after school activities in addition to free tutoring! The school has a web site access to for parents/studens to view all the daily homework assignments and how the students are doing in all their classes. Highly recommend the school and the school's education standards are extremely high!

This school is a wonderful place to learn because the classrooms are small and is easy to communicate with the teachers. They really care about you going to college and they help you with your applications.

This school goes above-and-beyond. They care about educating -- academically and psycho-socially -- their students. There is a focus on learning. Their resources for Special Ed. are exceptional and they are very fair and care just as much about those students' success as students who do not need accommodations. They do a lot with the few resources they get in this area as charter schools.

Magnolia Science Academy is a great little school.My child is in grade 9 in MAS. The discipline is very strict. This school requires uniforms. There are plenty of extra-curricular activities. MAS is a place where you feel that teachers know and care about each individual student. I appreciate their drive and school program with accent on math/computers/science.The only what I dislike is the geographical position of the school (school doesn t have any schoolyard), although they have gym for PE.
