I hope the orientation is not a little taste of whats in for us parents for the next school year. Very disorganized, didn't know where to go, the school didn't even have the school supply or the schedule for the students.
This school really need to get professional help in how to be organized. CRAZY
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.
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.
