    Spanish immersion, Mandarin, and inquiry-based learning -- I can't believe the education my daughter is getting! The community of teachers, staff, parents, and children is incredible too. I'm completely happy with our choice to send her to Magellan.

    My kids started when the school opened in 2009. My oldest started in 2nd grade and graduated from 8th grade there in 2016 and my youngest started in PK4 and will graduate in 2019. The school is a gem and unique not only in Austin but only one of 8 schools in the country offering what it offers. Not only are the teachers incredibly qualified, warm, and caring, but they also teach using the International Baccalaureate program which ensures kids foster their curiosity, problem solving skills, and empathy. The school recently added a design thinking program at all age levels that includes a new innovation laboratory. Together these allow kids to explore taking their ideas to reality. Finally, the multilingual education gives kids fluency in three languages - English, Spanish, and Chinese. All these together, plus an incredibly committed community of parents, teachers, staff, and students, make it a place like no other.
    Magellan is truly one of the best private schools in Austin. It's not just the Spanish and Mandarin immersion, the IB curriculum, or the inquiry-based curriculum - it's also that the teachers are the most caring and compassionate and engaged teachers, that is what really matters. Our three kids are excited to go to school every day that makes the price tag fully worth it.
