About Us

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.

Superintendent Update 7/27/21

While the Pandemic changed the way we educate children in the Magnolia School District, it did not change our focus on high expectations, rigorous academics and the importance of social-emotional learning. When we transitioned from virtual learning to our hybrid model last April, students and staff were very happy to return to school. We added additional custodial, health, counseling, food services and instructional support to ensure our schools are safe and the needs of our students and staff are met.

Preschool Students Perform At-Home Learning

We are proud of our Magnolia School District preschool students, who are engaged in fun and educational learning at home with their families! Last week, students were given a Friday challenge of “Who could build the tallest structure?” The students and their families created structures using household materials. Once constructed, they measured and submitted the height of their structures to the classroom teacher. The winner with the tallest structure received the honor of selecting the Fun Friday songs to be played in their weekly class Zoom meeting. Check out these awesome structures that the students and their families constructed!
