Welcome From Head of School

On behalf of all of us at Magnolia Heights School, I want to take this opportunity to personally thank you for your interest in our school. Magnolia Heights has provided area students college preparatory educational opportunities in a Christian, caring, and disciplined environment since 1970. Today we continue our strong commitment to a college preparatory curriculum as a means of insuring that our students are ready and prepared for the rigors of college life and successful careers afterward.

At Magnolia Heights we are committed to the total development of the child. Along with our emphasis on academics, we strive to provide each child the opportunity to develop to his maximum capacity mentally, physically, socially, morally and spiritually. We want our students to find their place in our society and make positive contributions to our community, state, nation, and world.

Educational growth is a ceaseless process and subject to revision at all times. Therefore, at Magnolia Heights our educational program undergoes continuous evaluation and development, with the administration providing leadership in maintaining a functional program to meet the ever-changing needs of our students. As a result, our students score substantially above their grade levels on nationally normed achievement tests.

A special strength and cherished objective of Magnolia Heights School is the opportunity provided for uniting the resources of the school with those of the home on behalf of the students. Our parents become acquainted with and participate in the life of the school in a variety of ways. Through the aid of the Parents’ Club and Chiefs’ Club, our parents share in the activities of the school.

We believe that you will find the values and standards at Magnolia Heights School second to none. When you visit our campus, I am confident that you will sense an atmosphere in which students and teachers are valued as individuals, where differences are respected, and where all work together to afford our students the best educational opportunities available.

Let me encourage you to visit our school and experience our legacy and achievement. As a parent myself (Scott, class of 1999, and Rob, class of 2012), I know the value of a Magnolia Heights’ education and welcome the opportunity to share with you what a great school we have.

Again, thank you for your interest. My staff and I look forward to meeting you and your family soon.
Sincerely yours,

Dr. Marvin W. Lishman, Ph.D.
Head of School
