24 Parent Reviews for Col. Zadok Magruder High School

First thing is that every school has issues but magruder always has security and police so that when dummies fight they don't hurt other people and themselves! Magruder prepares you for college but you got to make an effort to want info! Sum teachers need re-evaluation, but 99% of my teachers have been ...  Read more

Graduation at last! I've had lots of great teachers and made the best friends of my life at Magruder. At Magruder, you'll find rich and poor, highly-motivated and ultra-lazy, college-bound and work-bound. If you make a reasonable effort here, there is endless opportunity. Large selection of AP classes, ...  Read more

As with any school, this school has great teachers and mediocre and every level in-between. Being one of the largest schools in the county, it has its share of problems but also, because of the large student body, it also has a large selection of course to choose from. Required courses have many levels ...  Read more

I accidentally came across this site and felt that the rating does not truly represent the heart of this school. I believe Magruder is a unique, free-spirited school that helps students to discover their interest and plan for future. I see students energy and creativity through the float and hallway ...  Read more

I think that most of the people who read this site probably have children that qualify for honors or AP classes, and those children will end up being very well-prepared for college by the time they graduate from Magruder. Unfortunately, a few small areas of Montgomery County that have extremely difficult-to-educate ...  Read more

I have 2 children in honors classes that have excelled here. Much better than the feeding middle school Redland. Activities after school are very good. Dicepline and safety remain a concern.

Magruder is almost like two schools in one. The honors and on level classes are so different from each other. Honor classes are the best to sign your kids up for, on level classes are chaotic. Our 'Acting principle' dispite many attempts has not been able to reach the student body. There are many fights ...  Read more

An assistant principal has been appointed as the 'interim principal' for 2006 to 2007 and the school has seen a major turnaround. A major overhaul of the the culinary skills lab has been completed and it is now state-of-the-art. Many other areas of the school have also been refurbished. Teacher's ...  Read more

Academic quality is shaky at best, along with teacher qualifications. On-level classes can tend to be wild, noisy, and out of the teacher's control. Current 'culinary skills' classes do nothing but worksheets, since there are still no ovens or stoves available. (It's October now!) Many kids and parents ...  Read more

I graduated from MHS in 2001. My 3 siblings did as well. I took advantage of the many opportunities MHS and Montgomery County had to offer. I still keep in touch with some of my teachers, most of whom are still teaching there. I had a great experience there. If you and your children are willing to ...  Read more
