Magnolia Charter High School aims to engage underserved students in high poverty areas through scholarship, personalization and community involvement. Historically, minority groups have not been exposed to opportunities to pursue careers in STEM fields. This is reflected in underrepresentation in these areas, hence creating educational equity and access to careers in these fields.
Magnolia Charter High School believes that our families, students, and staff are contributors to a thriving and rich learning community. Our instructional design is based on three pillars: Scholarship, Innovation, and Connection.
Instruction is delivered through a critical lens reflecting rigor and standards, where students own their learning, can demonstrate knowledge, and understand that learning is life-changing. Instruction is designed purposefully using research-based methods. Our process incorporates the Jerrold Kemp instructional design method, which utilizes ADDIE components of planning, evaluation, project management, support and implementation, and revision to continuously monitor and evaluate the academic program.
Magnolia Charter High School College Advisors work with each senior individually to develop a four-year learning plan that culminates in college acceptance. In order to prevent application errors and to find the best-fit colleges, universities and career programs, our counselors work with parents, students and family units. College personnel mentor our students through the matriculation of high school through the following mechanisms: four year plans, college visits and trips, parental involvement, research, culmination senior projects and a simple belief that college is attainable through academic success. The distinguishing part of our College Mentorship program is the active participation of our students in the development and design of their future academic pathways.
