I like the small classes, it helps with focused studies. They can somehow cram all that knowledge but make it feel like a game of paper. The diversity has risen over the years, and lots of the kids are nice. It helps prepare students for upcoming years and incorporates all of the "specials" and "electives" into the classes or you can sign up for an after school activity. You get to bring your own food which helps with allergy and health worries from stressed parents. I've seen two very nice janitors and lots of encouraging words all around. Thank you Magellan Charter for being a great school.

Magellan is a very good school. It has amazing resources, and most of the teachers are extremely nice and understanding. There is low diversity, but there is a high amount of parent involvement. The clubs are pretty good (I'm not in one though), and after-school activities are world qualifiers. They have an amazing college readiness program, and the facilities inside are clean
Small classes, engaged teachers and admin. Students are taught how to be organized, respectful, responsible, and academically focused. Follows the state curriculum with the flexibility for overnight field trips each year to provide good bonding opportunity.
