Magnolia Middle School (MMS) is dedicated to providing a challenging, rigorous, and well-rounded educational program for all students. Opportunities abound to challenge even the most gifted students both in and out of the classroom. The MMS instructional program is centered around the “teaming concept” where teams of approximately 85-90 students are taught by an interdisciplinary team of teachers, who work together to meet individual learning needs of their students.
At Magnolia Middle School, students participate in intervention and/or enrichment activities related to the core curriculum through extended periods scheduled into the school day. During this time students take part in remediation, service learning, and other enrichment activities to support learning and promote student success and achievement focused around reading, writing, and math skills. Rounding out their instructional program, students receive forty-five minutes of instruction in physical education and special areas that include art, music, computers, and health, as well as foreign language exploration in nine-week rotations during the year. Extra-curricular opportunities for students include the Maryland Engineering Challenge group, as well as Destination Imagination, Yearbook, Literary Magazine, STARS, Math Counts, drama programs, as well as intramurals. The Boys 2 Men Program, under the leadership of Pastor Al Reeves, which received the 2008 Martin Luther King “Champion of Courage” Award, flourishes by providing mentoring and other opportunities for our male students.
Magnolia Middle School is situated on over 69 acres of beautiful grounds with an Olympic-sized swimming pool. MMS is truly a community school supported by an active Parent Teacher Association (PTA), which supports a wide variety of student activities focusing on increasing family and community involvement. Our staff is resolute in our efforts to make our school’s vision a reality to make Magnolia Middle School a place where everyone works collaboratively and cohesively in order to be recognized by all as a school of excellence.
