Innovative Features Of The Educational Program
Magnolia Public Schools distinguishes itself from other schools by cultivating the pursuit of excellence through a rigorous, high-quality STEAM education for all students. We incorporate an extraordinary support program that includes home visits, extended learning, and parent and community engagement.
At MPS we believe that after-school hours are an extension of the day. MPS recognizes that educational success is realized only when the essential underlying triad of student-teacher-parent/guardian is in harmony.
Parent And Community Engagement (PACE) Program
The Parent Advocacy & Community Engagement (PACE) Program utilizes on-site coordinators who build coalitions and partnerships. The PACE Coordinator works to build social capital by fostering person-to-person and people-to-place relationships, develop the skill and will of parents and community leaders to take on leadership roles within schools and in their community, and encourage civic engagement in order to build neighborhoods where the stakeholders want to invest their time and resources to transform their communities.
Home Visit Program
Research has shown that one of the keys to successful teaching and schooling is creating personal connections with students. MPS teachers visit students at their homes to enhance student learning and involvement. Family visits offer invaluable insights about students. They can provide new understanding about students' learning styles. Visits might also reveal the emotional and social needs and behaviors of students. It is helpful to know if they react to problems with tears, anger, or withdrawal, and how they socialize with peers. Through family visits, teachers can identify students' latest interests or concerns, such as a new hobby, an upcoming trip, or a change in the family.
Tutoring And Clubs
We offer tutoring and clubs designed to support daytime instruction. Additionally, there is targeted intervention before, during, and after-school.
Beyond the Monday through Friday programming, we offer Saturday programs which include academic tutoring, enrichment, and parent workshops. At MPS, learning is a yearlong commitment; we also offer Winter and Spring academic camps as well as Summer school programs.
MPS does not stop there. Our strong alumni network is intended to support our graduates in enrolling and completing their post-secondary degrees and entering the workforce.
