    I attend this school 2005- 2007. Magnolia is a wonderful school to attend. There is a student council yearbook staff and before school tutoring for every one. This school is so much fun!! Every month there is a activity. If you are on the no go list you can't go. Some actvites are Turkey Trot and the Valentines Dance. I recommend this school!!

    May 9 2008 I have greatly been impressed with the Magnolia Middle School leadership of both the principal vice principal and secretary. We have been their two years and all of their teachers are excellent caring individuals who are trying to make a difference in the lives of all the students
