It is obvious that children’s education is a primary concern of all parents. There are 15-20 schools around my neighborhood, and most of them are great quality schools. But why Magnolia?
First, why I chose this great charter school is that the school environment is very warm and friendly for all – for students, parents, and even for one-time school visitors.. Yes, and that’s also briefly how I learned about this charter school.
I was driving by and I saw this “Open House” banner on the school building. I walked in and just loved the school site at my very first visit.
Unfortunately, the open house was already over, but the school administrators generously offered me a guided tour, and answered all my questions. I saw almost all the labs, classrooms, and school auditoriums that day. They invited me for another open house session after the tour. What impressed me at that school site visit was this warm welcome. I wasn’t just “an another parent”.
I was told about the teachers’ “home visit program”, which I found very unique for this charter school. I didn’t know about these visits before, and think they are very notable.
I’ll write on Magnolia’s home visits later, and will share other reasons (or let’s say this charter school’s differences) that lead me to choose this charter school.
