High Expectations

We value a high quality education as demonstrated through the achievement of our students, staff, and parents, and our clean , safe, and attractive schools.


We seek and support the most qualified employees because the Magnolia School District is a great place to make a difference.


We recognize that every individual is unique and we promote behavior that enhances self-esteem for students and adults.


Student learning is our first priority. We believe that all students can learn and should have equal opportunities for learning.


The Magnolia School District is a “we” district and teamwork is promoted and demonstrated at all levels as part of our positive school and District culture.


Magnolia School District provides students with a high-quality education that builds a foundation to prepare them for college and careers in the 21st Century. All students are provided with rigorous standards-based instruction, one-to-one technology in grades two through six, and specially designed music and arts programs. Seven of the nine Magnolia Elementary Schools received the California Gold Ribbon Schools Award and the Title I Academic Achieving Schools Award in 2016, and one school received the Exemplary Arts Education Program Award. The Magnolia School District is a great place to learn, grow, and make a difference.
