Magnolia ISD offers a continuum of advanced academic service for students K-12 that builds upon students’ individual strengths and skills and maximizes academic potential for all learners.
Our Advanced Academic Programs offer several types of challenging learning experiences to meet the needs of a broad range of advanced learners. Advanced Academic services are implemented using a school-based model in the following ways:
- All students engage in classrooms with comprehensive, structured, sequenced, and appropriately challenging content.
- Students who require differentiated extension lessons in areas of academic strength are served through advanced level stations or small group work.
- Through junior high, students who are identified for GT services are provided the opportunity to work together in a group setting for a minimum of two hours per week.
Special programs services provided include Gifted and Talented, Special Education, ESL/Bilingual, Dyslexia, Credit Recovery.
The District’s Career and Technical Education Center offers more than 25 programs of study for junior high and high school students to explore their future. An Inclusive Preschool program allows children with identified disabilities to attend class with children who are developing typically and a free Pre-Kindergarten program is offered for qualifying families. The MATRIX (moving adults to transition to real interest and experiences) program was developed for students 18-21 who have met academic graduation requirements but demonstrate a need for continued support.
Magnolia ISD offers art, band, cheerleading, choir, dance, drill team, and theatre for secondary students interested in fine arts.
When it comes to athletics, high school students compete in baseball, basketball, cross country, football, golf, powerlifting, soccer, softball, swimming and diving, tennis, track and field, and volleyball. Junior high students compete in basketball, cross country, football, tennis, track, and volleyball. All MISD high schools with varsity team programs compete in the University Interscholastic League (UIL) 5A classification.
In addition to fine arts and athletics, a wide variety of clubs and organizations are available at the secondary level, including both curricular and non-curricular activities. The majority of middle and high school students are involved in some sort of school-related activity outside of the classroom.
At the elementary level, students participate in special programs including physical education for life-long health and music and art for life-long appreciation. In addition, clubs such as chess, choir, science club, student council, and safety patrol promote leadership and other important life skills.

After School Adventures
The After School Adventures program operates through the Magnolia ISD and is located at all MISD elementary campuses to students in grades Pre-k – 6.

All activities are designed with educational enhancement in mind; however, the main emphasis and delivery method is FUN! The program has many academic and enrichment-based components and activities will rotate from movement to hands-on as children transition throughout the afternoon participating in: STEM, literacy, physical fitness, creativity, problem-solving, college and career readiness, healthy living, leadership, family engagement opportunities, and more.

Select enrichment courses will be offered throughout the school year and will be unique to each elementary campus.
