I have 2 children at Magdalen, and have been very impressed with the faculty, teachers, and curriculum. The tiered reading program for younger students, combined with advanced reading, really challenges the younger students to excel. The parents are extremely involved and a very close community. Faith is instilled in everything they do. The students are challenged each day, feel safe, and love their school. We are blessed to be part of Magdalen.
This school is fine for average kids but not exceptional kids. I moved my high-IQ child to a public school last November. He says he feels safer in the public school and the work is three times harder than his Catholic school. Both of these assertions surprised me. It's sad children do not feel safe at Magdalen.
My children have been happy at School of The Magdalen, but they are students who excel and don't need extra help. The music program could be greatly improved. The 'band' definitely could receive better support. They meet during part of the lunch hour, which makes more kids drop out because they get tired of rushing during lunch. Parents are highly involved and support of the teachers and the school.
