Gulen charter schools argument
I’m a parent of a student of Magnolia since 2010. I’m very happy about my school, Magnolia Science Academy in Hollywood. Teachers are good and administration is easy to talk to. It was my ideal school until one of the other parents came to me and mentioned this website. As an alert parent I read everything in this website and beyond. There is an allegation of being a Gulen charter school. First of all, I did not observe any of the accusations about these schools. This school is as secular as a regular public school. There are international teachers in the school but they are from very different countries. Living in California, I’m pretty used to diversity.
Gulen charter schools argument looks like something used against Magnolia. It is obvious that there are a few people who are not comfortable with a good successful school. I talked about these slanders with the principal and suggested Magnolia taking action against these people.
Magnolia school, please do not let these people to damage the reputation of our schools.
We will begin by saying that we believe things happen for reason, we were so tired for the last two years trying to helped our son to have a good time and learned as much as he could at school, but very frustrated when you don’t have the help that you need from the teachers, all we wanted was a fair shot for our son. I knew public school was losing him with the big size classes, and I started looking for a new school without any luck.
One day on my mail was an envelope with a name that I never seeing before, I almost put it in the trash can, but for some reason that I don’t know I put it on the side and opened later. I was really surprised when I saw it that was an information letter for a new charter school in Orange County, right away a called to take all the information that I needed, and enroll our son.
This is our first year at the Pacific Technology School, and we can tell how happy our son is, we see such a big improvement. Now he has good grades, he understood his projects and enjoys his new fried. He look forward to go to school every day, and every day he always have something new to tell us about how good the teacher and friends are. We are truly grateful for the dedicated Principal and teachers. It is a plus all the great after school programs that they have available for the kids. My son is becoming an independent student with loads of opportunities.
Everyone we have met at Pacific Technology School seems to go to the extra mile to help you. We are lucky to found this small dedicated school and to be a part of it.
