About This School
Charter schools are public schools, but differ from traditional public schools in that they are independent and are operated by educators, parents, community leaders, educational entrepreneurs, or others. Funding for charter schools is based on designated local or state educational organizations. Those organizations are responsible for monitoring and assessing the quality and effectiveness of education, but permit the schools to operate outside of the traditional public school education system. See Magnolia Science Academy's test results to learn more about school performance.

Magnolia Science Academy Reviews
My experience with this school has been great. Small classrooms and many after school activities help kids to be motivated. It doesn't really matter where teachers are from, I actually like the diversity and I think they are going beyond the expectations in helping students succeed.
