Bridging the Gap

Magnolia Public Schools (“MPS”) is a Charter Management Organization (“CMO”) that is headquartered in Downtown Los Angeles, CA operates ten Magnolia Science Academy (“MSA”) locations serving grades TK-12 across California in Los Angeles, Orange, and San Diego Counties. We are known for successfully educating students through Excellence, Connection, and Innovation. Magnolia is a tuition-free school with no cost to families who enroll and has no admission requirements.

Our core values are academic excellence, innovation, and connection. Connection with their families and students; Innovation with local partnerships in the community to bring academic programs to the school site; and Excellence in academics through rigorous college-preparatory education. Students benefit from differentiated and adaptive assessments, blended learning, differentiated instruction, and after-school enrichment programs, like our robotics club.
