I am so impressed with the hands on learning Magellan provides my child. He has learned so much and is excited about school instead of dreading it. The new facility is wonderful but the people who teach and work there are what make the school so wonderful.
I am a grandmother to three children who attended Magellan. We happen to be Black. I have only heard rave reviews from the grandchildren and from their parents. The children spoke very positively about the male teacher who taught science using a hands-on minds-on approach involving inside as well as outside the classroom. Overall the school must be one worthy of high praise in all areas.
I go to Magellan and we go on fun field trips a lot and we are active in community service. The only downsides to Magellan include having to pay for an extracurricular activities you want to do and being with the same children for five years. I don't want to say that you get sick of seeing the same people for 180 days each year but that is pretty much what happens.
Magellan has given my children a wonderful background and a solid academic basis to succeed in school and in life after graduation from Magellan. My daughter now a freshman in college entered Magellan as a bright but discouraged shy student. She thrived in the environment where it was 'okay' to be smart and motivated and blossomed into a self-confident leader. She entered High School very prepared for rigorous academics and now enters college with 21 credit hours and an impressive scholarship. I credit Magellan for stimulating her natural gifts and letting them shine. My son now an eighth grader at Magellan is an average to above average student. Magellan allows him to also feel confident in his abilities even though he is not as gifted as his sister. The smaller size has allowed him to enjoy school sports at his level which is the most important thing to him!
I have had two daughters at this school and my friends can't wait to get their children in. Ask any one about the field trips or voyages they'll know what i mean but more than that the teachers truly care about your child's successes. The family atmosphere makes you feel like it is OK to want to learn more and achieve more. Your children are stimulated to think beyond the basic academic boundaries. If your child and even you as a parent want to be challenged to succeed Magellan is the palce for you.
This has been an incredible learning environment for my daughters. I have been impressed with the level of commitment the teachers have to the children and the field trips are so great we have parents fighting to be able to chaperone. Your children will never be the same.
