Junior High and High School

Magnolia Heights School’s primary mission is to prepare students for college.  Therefore, the curriculum is challenging and broad, emphasizing a liberal arts education.  The school year is divided into four nine-week reporting periods.  Classes meet on a traditional seven period per day schedule.

Junior High Students attend classes in secondary building.  Clubs and activities for Junior High include Jr. High Student Council, FCA, Junior Beta Club, Junior Optimist, Chiefs for Christ, and Drama.

Seventh grade students take the Stanford Achievement Test. In preparation for the ACT, eighth grade students take the Explore Standardized Test and ninth grade students take the PLAN Standardized test.  MHS Junior High students score above the state and national averages on both of these tests.

Students have access to MacBook carts that are used in their classrooms and a computer lab.
