Love this school! All the teachers and administration know your children! They are not just a number! I had 1 son attend here and we came from one of the largest districts in Houston.. We loved the family atmosphere and the fact that the teachers care! My oldest played sports and successfully attended college! The administration has always gotten high ranks in the State!

Magnolia High is an awesome school with an awesome principal! Where else do you see a high school principal sit down at lunch with students and stand in the hall and converse with them (and give hugs). My daughter is on drill team and he traveled all the way to Florida with them for New Year's Day Citrus Bowl performance. Not to mention he's at almost every competition they do in the Houston area. Every student's name is listed on a star in the entryway of the school. The school motto is "every student is Valued, Complete, and Loved"! I wish I had gone to a high school like this!

One of our children graduated from MHS a few years ago and another will graduate this year. Teacher quality ranges from outstanding to awful, but the administration seems to do a decent job getting the worst teachers to leave over time. Given the school's size, we have been pleased with the range of AP class offerings. However, the administration is obsessed with "top 10%" class rank as a means of admission to UT or A&M, and is uninterested in placing students in selective universities outside of Texas, seemingly being unaware they even exist. There also is an absurd level of attention devoted to athletic programs relative to academics.

Many fine, tenured teachers; good stable school administration; good preparation for college including many AP, honors, and dual credit classes; handles households from a wide variety of economic levels giving every student a balanced experience and equal chance to succeed; prepared for and accomodating students from diverse backgrounds and abilities; somewhat disappointed in the high emphasis on sports; not sure many parents understood the grading system and it's importance in college acceptance; disappointed that debate was removed from AP status; high marks on school's accounting program

The Magnolia High School is top notch. We moved here 3 years ago and are very pleased with the education our children are receiving. Any problems we have had arise have been resolved quickly and professionally. The principal and his staff support the teachers well, and staff turn-over is very limited. Students are reminded daily that they are "valuable, complete, and loved." There are a huge variety of courses from which to choose, all of which seem to be of superior quality. (Math, English, etc, and also the arts, music, and sports programs). High school is not without drama, but if you are looking for a great school, you will find it here. (We have 4 children, 1 of whom is now graduated from MHS, 2 who are still in attendance, and one who is at Bear Branch Jr. High).

Very welcoming school. Cheerleaders and football players are the favorites by everyone. Cheerleaders are very snooty, however just about everybody else are good people. You get what you put into the school. I was not informed about a lot of the school activities and missed out on opportunities because of that. If you are looking to easily skate through the year-you can do it. But if you want to challenge yourself there are definitely some classes that will. Lunches are short but there's a good speech and debate program. This school is very country oriented. It is hard to be different and the students seem to be judgmental. School lunches are ok, little food but it's better than average. Homecoming and dances are a complete joke, however many people participate. I liked my experience but I just did not simply fit in. I am currently attending a different school than Magnolia High and I currently find myself more challenged at my new school than this school.

This school is probably the most awful school in the nation. Do not enroll your child, and if your child is enrolled, un-enroll them. The school only cares about pass or fail, not whether the child makes A's or B's. You've been warned.

Even though they changed the time of day to go to school very early...i still love coming to this school. Every school has their good and their bad, though our good oversees our bad. Great School to attend.

This school is a joke. The principal says he is hands on but he was never and I mean never available when we needed to discuss anything with him. This school is all about football players and cheerleaders and if your child is not one of those then you can forget the staff giving a hoot if your child passes or needs help. I am so glad my child has graduated and I never have to deal with this school again. What a joke, MHS needs a principal who is not all talk. Send your child to MWHS if you want anyone to care about your child.

My grandson was in the 3rd grade when we moved to Magnolia in 1998. In the 6th grade, he was placed in special needs classes and continued special needs classes until 11th grade. Counselors, teachers, everyone - have been so helpful, supportive and communicative. We're blessed to have the educators we have!

Magnolia High School has been an answer to our prayers! As a parent with a child having special needs, we have found the teachers and staff at MHS to be very supportive, caring, and cooperative. We are so grateful that our child has the opportunity to be a part of such a possitve, value centered school environment. Words cannot express our appreciation enough.

MHS is a wonderful school. It is so warm and friendly. The teachers and staff are WONDERFUL. I transferred my child from a school that was nothing like MHS. It has been the best experience ever as far as a school is concerned. Everything about the school is great. Keep up the good work. A very happy parent.

The school is in a beautiful new building, with a new pool, theatre center, classrooms, etc. Teaching quality has gone up in the past 5 years, with new teachers and more things available to them, your students will get a better education.

Teachers and staff act as a family and welcome parents and community members with open arms! Magnolia High School has the best parent organization of any high school that I have been associated with. They actually encourage parents to be involved and on campus daily!
