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.

Magnolia High School is a very poor academic school. There is only one or two teacher who actually teach well enough to prepare students for further education. Sports are valued over academics. In fact, athletes get special treatment and never have consequences. If I could change one thing about this high school, it would be the bullying and special treatment of athletes.
This school is truly what you make of it. Most of the teachers truly want to see you succeed and will do anything to help you. That being said, academics at this school seem to be lacking judging by test scores, but so are scores in the rest of the state. In recent years, the administration has truly tried to push college prep and help students become their very best, whether they are pursuing more schooling or joining the workforce.
