Surprisingly enough to me, not all of the Magnolia parents know about this blog. Recently, a parent who has recently heard about it, told me that she wants to share her thoughts about our school. Below is her message..
Parent testimonial:There was a construction going on for a long time in our neighborhood in Bell. We always wondered what that big building is for.
I first came to know Magnolia two years ago; it was a very rainy day.. Magnolia and couple of other charters came to our school where my daughter was attending. Each charter school gave their presentations with enthusiasm. Apparently, they were competing for that large building to start their schools in a brand new campus. The winning charter school would need to have a great academic success track and gain majority of the votes of local parents as well.
Other charter schools were also great, but of all the presentations, I liked Magnolia’s. They invited many students and parents as well; it was much convincing to hear about the school from them. Everybody in the hall were asking questions about Magnolia and their academic programs, discipline etc..
That summer we heard that Magnolia won the competition, that they named the school Magnolia Science Academy-Bell, and they started enrolling students etc. We applied for the school and waited hoping that our little one will be accepted. We were informed there was a long waiting list.
Finally, our daughter was enrolled! We were happy to hear the news. I attended the school’s opening day. It was inspiring to see its modern classrooms and brand new computer and science labs. Everything was brand new, lockers, classroom equipment, desks, tables…
After two years, we’re more than happy with Magnolia. Our daughter is getting a very good education at Magnolia Science Academy-Bell. We’re happy with her grades and her eagerness to learn more, and of course for her excitement/motivation to go to school each morning.
Thank you for coming to our area, Magnolia!
