I believe Magnolia West High School is a phenomenal school! They offer a wide variety of classes so that each student is comfortable with their classes. The schools staff is very big on following "No Child Left Behind." The school has many actives for students as well allowing for many opportunities as a student. Also, because Magnolia West High School is part of a small district, the school receives a lot of funding for all electives and courses! The school also has an entire team and lunge dedicated to helping every student prepare for life after high school. It also offers dual credit, ap, and ib opportunities! The only downside is that the school lacks diversity however it never seemed to be a major issue.

Magnolia West High School, Going to west has challenged and prepared me for the future. Everything is great, you build relationships with students and teachers like no other. The sports teams are exciting and fantastic. If I could do high school all over again I wouldn’t change it at all! The teachers really care about your success. Nothing else like those Friday night lights in Magnolia Texas.
Magnolia West High School is a fantastic school with a very close-knit and reliable community. As a student that came in at the beginning of the sophomore year, the school is incredibly welcoming and eager to help new students acclimate to life there. The school is of moderate-small size with around 500 student classes. The teachers are emphatic about helping their students succeed. The advanced academics are well ran with an excess of AP classes as well as a full-fledged Diploma Program for the International Baccalaureate (IB) program. The campus has an incredibly helpful and friendly faculty and a determination to make the school the best possible place to prepare oneself for further education.
