I'm a student and this is one of the best schools ever! I love that class sizes which range from 15-25 people. The principal is very nice and does his best to keep the school at its best. The teachers are incredibly friendly and they really try their best to help you when your need it. This year I'm taking 3 AP classes and the teachers are amazing at really making you understand the material. I've been going to this school for 5 years! And I love it

This school is the best school on earth! I go there and the teachers, students, friends, and staff are incredible!! I am just not satisfied with the new principle that came this year. The old one was much better!

My daughter is in 8 grade at Magnolia she loves the school for the first time she is having amazing grades and she loves all her teachers! she is an IEP student and she gets all the help she needs from the special aid teacher who was an IEP child herself so she totally understands how to approach students that learn differently! i am very happy with the school so far, the classes are not crowded with kids it's a small MS and i like that a lot! we do not leave around the school we have to carpool with another family to get to school (about 25 minutes drive) but it's worth it! for the first time since Elementary school my child feels loved and important and smart she is academically succeeding and her self esteem went up! this is our 3rd Middle school! yes i will recommend this school for all children!

To have teachers who are not fluent in English is not my idea of a good school, Math and Science need to be taught and explained. Several parents have already complained about it and we are not seeing results.

Magnolia Science Academy-2 is a great school. All teachers are dedicated. Small class size. In a one word this school is PERFECT!

Be careful... not all teachers are credentialed (which I learned was okay at a charter school) but it means something to me as a parent. Also... All their advertising is based on the API scores of MSA 1 not the 3 available years from MSA 2. Very misleading!!

This is my third year at this school. And so far, it's amazing. It's a small charter school, and the staff is great, they teach, but they are also fun. The school is also unique, they have a very interesting system called the DRS system, which let's a parent monitor their child's behavior. They have a web-site account for each child to be able to check their grades at any time. They have a good foreign language program which includes Spanish, Turkish, and Russian. I have been is all of these languages, and I can say that they're great. If I had the chance to go back to 6th grade and start it all over again from the beginning, I would do it only at this school.

Magnolia Science Academy 2 is good overall with caring teachers. The dean is really nice and gets things done. The only thing I could complain about is that the principal doesn't hold assemblies or anything special for the kids. I wish they'd enforce respecting one another and adults. Overall though if your kid wants to work and get the grades in a small classroom ration send them here.

I highly recommend this school, Teachers are extremely dedicated to the students. Is a very small school only 20 to 25 students per classroom. Parents are also very involved in the progress of the school. students are tested constantly to show their improvemnets.

The academic curriculum is phenomenal. The small student to teacher ratio affords the teachers to have more of a personal relationship with the students and parents. The immediate access to grades, homework and daily progress, through the school website, is wonderful! I highly recommend this school

My son is in his 6th week at this school and he seems to be doing better than ever! The staff is friendly and competent. I am really impressed with the use of the online correspondense. My son is extremly excited about the after school programs. I think it is very important to get kids excited about school. MSA Valley has done that for my son.

terrific envoirment, diverse student body, great afterschool activities and much emphasis on academic excellence while maintaining individual focus on child's potential. My child is in the 7th grade here and this is our 2nd year at the school, we hope to see continued excellence through to year 12. Thank you!

We like the friendly staff and parents. Also, they have a very good academic curriculum,aim at making their students really achieve the highest possible learning for each grade level.The achievement awards that the school staff gave to my son in the first sem. also served as encouragement and inspiration for our children to always do their best to be successful in their studies.More power to MSA-2 and looking forward to coming schoolyears.
