I have two children and they both have been at Magolia trace. My oldest is an "A " student so we did not have any issues with him. However, my youngest has struggled with academics and this is again where they have failed to give the help that we desperately need. If you have a cookie cutter kind of kid, you will do just fine- however, if you have a child that needs extra help, you are in deep trouble. It was interesting to read other parents with the same problems as we had. I hope somebody reads this post and tries to do something about it.

This is a great school with some of the best teachers we've ever had. The principal Ms. Edwards goes above and beyond our expectations. My son switched to this school from Mandeville Elementary where he had a terrible 1st grade teacher & this school has restored my faith in the public school system.

My elder daughter attended MTE kindergarten through 3rd grade, and my younger one will be going to 2nd grade this year. MTE is an outstanding school with a dedicated Principal and excellent teaching staff, and offers students every chance to develop a strong base in academics and extra curricular activities. Over the years, we got to know each of my daughter's teachers and felt that they truly care for the student as a whole, both inside and outside the classroom environment. The PTA is very active and hands-on in organizing events throughout the school year. We are very fortunate to be part of this top notch school district.

My son attended this school for 2nd and 3rd grade. You will not find a more structured yet nurturing school then MTE. There are so many extra curricular opportunties, outstanding pull-out programs, and a very strong PTA that adds to the students' educational experiences. Students spend their days with dedicated teachers that truly care about the growth of each child - academically, socially, emotionally, and empathetically. I could not be more pleased with our entire experience at MTE.

I don't feel that MTE did everything that they could for my child. My child was having a hard time from the very beginning of the school year. I had numerous meetings with my childs teacher and there was never any kind of resolution to the problem. Not until the end of the year did I find out that there were special programs that could have helped my child. The teacher never brought it to my attention. She only told me that there was tutoring but not for his grade level. Apparently there was a program for him, but when I heard about it and talked to her about it, she said that it was too late to enroll my child ; that he wouldn't be able to join until next year. He already failed his grade for the year. I am very disappointed in the 'no child left behind' clause.

My son has had a wonderful first year at this school in kindergarten and an amazing teacher (Mrs. Duke). I could not have asked for a better experience for my son. He is already adding and subtracting in math and can put words together and read sentences pretty well. This is our first foray into the public school system and I would highly recommend this school.

My children and I love this school. The teachers are wonderful. There is so much parent involvement. Some volunteer so many hours that they should be on salary. This is what makes this a wonderful learning envirorment. If a child has special needs there is always a place for them whether it be in speech, voyager reading programs, friendship groups,gifted & inclusion classes. There is always a place for every child where they are given the assistance to help them thrive.

I'm very unhappy with this school. Like one of the other reviewers, they are not very helpful when it comes to trying to get academic help for your child. I personally have been trying all year, jumping through hoops, and here we are at the end of the year and my child still hasn't been helped for academic problems.

This school appears to be in a state of confusing! I feel that special needs children are not given the needed mainstreaming when they present the least amount of difficulty. there are too many parents in the office runnning the show and having access to confidential information. This has been a difficult school to become a part of - I truly hope they make efforts to become more parent-oriented in terms of valuing the parent's relationship

I am extremely pleased with Magnolia Trace. My daughter is entering second grade this fall and her last two years there have been wonderful. There are classes that support all academic levels and overall the school is run very well.

My two boys have been thriving at Magnolia Trace. The staff is excellent and truly look out for the best interest of the students. There are special programs to make sure each child is growing to the best of their ability. There is an unbelievable amount of parent envolvement at the school which makes it truly a wonderful experience for the whole family. I would suggest this school to anyone seeking a quality education, and a nuturing envirorment for their child. Hats off to all who make this school the success it is!

I have no worries that my son will pass the LEAP test. MTE has made sure that his skills are above average. I knew he was smart and MTE has made sure he is confident in his ability to learn. He uses the skills he has developed everyday.He has discovered how to teach himself new words when reading and how to solve problems when calculating. I am very hopeful of his academic future.

We moved here from Georgia and are so thankful to have run into to this wonderful school. The teachers are excellent and Mrs. Edwards(principal) is a big part of why the school is run so well. She's strict but thats what makes it what it is. I've never seen such dedication from all the parents too. Awesome!

This is my two grandaughters second year at MTE, I was very skeptical the first year, coming out of a Christian School, I had issues, but, to my surprise, everything went well, I was so pleased with the staff and teachers, they welcomed my family with open arms and was very helpful. The student teacher ratio is great. Top quality teachers and caring too, I can't say enough great things about MTE.
