Mattie Lou Maxwell School is committed to providing all students with a complete educational experience that develops the whole child - academically, socially, emotionally, and physically. Our teachers are highly qualified, and participate in exceptional staff development provided by the Magnolia School District’s Educational Services Department. We respond to the individual needs of our students by offering daily interventions for students who are below grade level during and after school. We believe in creating partnerships with the community to provide extracurricular and leadership opportunities for our students. The Anaheim Ducks have built a hockey rink at Maxwell, which is used for physical education and for tournaments. Parents are invited to participate at Maxwell in a variety of ways. The PTA, School Site Council, and ELAC meet regularly. Our Parent Patrol volunteers every morning: welcoming students and parents to school, and preparing classroom materials for the teachers.

We are all deeply saddened by the horrible tragedy that occurred at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas earlier this week. The safety of our students and staff is our number one priority. I want to let you know what we have done to keep our schools safe and the resources we have available to address the social-emotional well-being of our students, families and staff members.
We are in the process of greatly expanding our Expanded Learning Program options. We have afterschool and summer school programs available for many students this year. For the 2022-23 school year we will have afterschool and summer school options available for all of our students.
