The Magnolia School Reviews
so many children have profited from the magnolia school's
learning style: theme focus on which all subjects revolve, lack of standardized testing so learning for learning, group activities, encouragement to follow one's interests in groups and as individuals, walk-abouts, theatre, and having a big break in the day to be
active on the playground. magnolia school is a humane place to spend one's childhood full of encouragement. Even children (like my nephew)
who came to the school very far behind and very emotionally upset due to family problems, recovered and learned and moved ahead.
He left Magnolia when he had to leave to return to parents much better able to help himself and set goals for himself.
I'm currently in my first year at San Francisco Theological Seminary in California, where I continue to benefit from the individualized learning style that I adopted from my days at Magnolia School. Self motivation is key for real learning, and certainly for graduate school. Thank you, Magnolia School teachers.
Magnolia School was a great place to work and a wonderful place for my daughter to start her school career. My older children came for events and for summers. Magnolia School had a caring, family atmosphere.
The school’s theme-based, hands-on approach promotes discovery and concrete understanding of concepts. Magnolia students learn to think, they don’t just memorize facts! Children are given ample opportunities to be outside to play and learn. Creativity, research and teamwork are emphasized and modeled by the teachers. The lack of standardized testing may scare some people away, but the freedom to learn without consequences produces children who are willing to stretch past their comfort zone (because there aren’t scary consequences for not getting it exactly right). Magnolia students are motivated to learn. They develop critical thinking skills that make them successful and prepared when they enter public or private high school.
