Magee had many problems last year. Students would fight constantly, and teachers/staff were too busy dealing with the fight before to discipline the children. The teachers tried their best, but it wasn't a safe environment. This year, unlike last year, teachers are more prepared to handle issues, and the students are falling into line with much less of a struggle. Magee is a great school now thanks to excellent planning and great staff!
I look forward to my daughter having more success at this school, as well as the rest of my kids having equally positive experiences at Magee. I would rate the school with 5 stars.
My 6th grader was very unhappy with most of his classes and teachers, describing daily aggravation, frustration, irritation, and tons of yelling and threats over discipline problems in the classrooms. The office staff is definitely rude to parents and students. We are not returning.
My child has been at Magee since 6th grade and is now an 8th grader, as every child who starts back to school there will be some rough days if not weeks ahead until they adjust to the changes. My experience from Magee and what my child tells me, I feel pretty good that she is getting a good education and likes her teachers. I do find that there seems to be a lot of homework which really pushes the students to achieve and complete them but at the same time can overwhelm them if they do not have a support system. Mr. Ericsson the former principal I thought was great and inviting the office staff on the other hand is a different story. Let's just say you avoid the rude ones. I feel the teachers give what they can with the resources they get from TUSD. I believe in supporting TUSD and have never thought about sending my child to a charter school. I know of several parents who choose a charter school because they believed the hype it's better. As the years have progressed they are now back at a TUSD school and their children are much happier. Supportive parent!
