Since 1985, The Magnolia School, K-8th grade, has given children and young people a safe place to learn and grow. We remain steadfastly committed to:

Science at Magnolia

Our middle schoolers often graduate thinking they have not done much science. But when they visit from their respective high schools, they typically say that they knew much more science than they thought, and that they miss the experimenting they did at Magnolia. Read the Director’s Corner for more about Magnolia’s approach to science.

Our grads ‘make good’

See how our students fare: Brown, Cornell, Georgia Tech, Georgetown, Sewanee, Vanderbilt…these are just a few of the places our graduates have gone in the past few years. Many are now living and studying abroad, whether it’s volunteering with the Peace Corps in Ethiopia, or spending a Fullbright year teaching English in the Czech Republic.
