Students need better preparation for test taking and college. ACT prep classes would be beneficial in high school. Teachers are professional and accessible. Guidance counselors needs to be more involved and helpful. Sports have been enjoyable and a positive experience. Most coaches and teachers have been positive role models and respectful. My kids like Magnolia High School and have never complained about going to school. They have maintained high honors, but their standarized test scores do not reflect that. As for my concern regarding test taking. They have made lifelong friends that share many interests in sports and academics.

The school offers wide variety of courses that students can take and sports to participate in, but these courses and sports are favorited. If you aren't in a specific course or playing certain sports you aren't as important as the others. More finances are put into these programs and it leads other parts of the school to not get resources or equipment needed.
My experience with Magnolia High school has been great. Magnolia is a school where the students come together as a family. The one thing magnolia excels in is its sports. In my four years attending i have gotten to witness two class A championships. Magnolia also allows students to participate in classes to further their career choice. like for example, they offer a peer tutoring class, art classes, business class, and agriculture classes. They also allow students to take college courses to get a head of the game.
