The school itself is alright, although it doesnt seem to follow through as it should. I feel like the Dean of Students isn't doing her job as well as she should be. For example, in the school's dress code it clearly states that students should not wear skinny jeans/ tight pants, however, students still do. Personally I feel that the rules should be enforced as they should be, but the students still ignore them and do as they please. On the other hand, the academics are excellent, but other than that I don't feel it's as strict as it used to be.
I was very disappoint the way they do the 8th grade ceremony at this school, they don't recognize the hard work the students with high grades or high gpa. What can the school expect from the students if this is the kind of motivation they give them. In my opinion they need to work more on motivating and recognizing the students hard work. Other school give presidential awards, high gpa award, etc in this school the student just get the diploma.
Best school in the region. Great teachers ! Very professional and caring staff ! I would recommend Magnolia Sience Academy 1 to all parents that want their child do well and get into top university and colleges.
This school is good with the education but there is a lot of bullying there i don't like it and some kids can be racists, and i cant concentrate on learning when all of the bullying is happening
My son is attending this school and his work improve very much . this school is really competent ... GREAT SCHOOL .
the dedication of the teachers and the entire MSA staff, makes the difference to this outstanding school
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.
MSA 1 is a safe place for my kids. It's a safe place for smart kids.
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.
Great school! My son is in 8 grade and he has realy good grades in all subjects. This is a small school but great teachers. They help kids so much. They provide free tutoring too.
Hello! I Love This School! I Been Here For 4 Years Am in High School! I Been Here since 6th Grade and some People Here Still Know Me! I Love this School But It Small But Great Education! I Hope Someday Here We have lockers! So We dont Carry Heavy Things! *hurts are backs* But this school is the best!!!! My Friends Like it and my parents from this education I Give This School 5 Stars!
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.
its an awesome school!!! you get to get along with everybody in it. we have sports lik softball, soccer, football, and volleyball. even srla.
This High school is best and all staff members are excellent in academic standards. The best thing is teachers and students are family.
It is a great school to be in. Everyone here learns great things from teachers and from the enviroment.
This is a great school, and I believe it deserves more than five stars, point blank period. Everyone affiliated with this school should take their time out to vote.
