This school is truly like a family. The teachers are amazing. Not just on a scholastic level. But a personal level. Everybody is very down to earth and genuinely caring. Every time I drop my little boy off at Magnuson, I know God has put him in very good hands. My son is in third grade. And I pray everyday he'll be able to graduate from Magnuson High School!!!! I couldn't imagine him going anywhere else. Thanks Magnuson!!!

Magnuson Christian School is an exceptional institution that is focused on great academic and the christian faith. I especially like the inclusiveness of all ethnic groups. The teachers are subject experts and wonderful mentors for students. I also like that students are exposed to a great variety of extracurricular events even while navigating the rigors of school work. A trial will convince you.
