I would not recommend this school if you have a child with special needs or a disability of any kind. Poor communication among Administration and Teachers, bullying is not dealt with appropriately, incidents that involve bullying are not reported to the parents and parents seem to be left out. Parents need to help their children get through situations and especially when a violent incident happened. Administration with not communicate even simple details about the incident. Privacy is important, I understand but when it comes to bullying the Florence District has a strict policy and Magma Ranch does not seem to follow it.Close Quote

Being a parent is never easy, but some children are more challenging than others. If you're concerned that your child's behavioral issues might be more than just temporary, consider whether an alternative school might be the next move.

Alternative schools provide students with unique challenges or abilities an opportunity to succeed in a different educational setting.
