About Us

Baden-Powell School, a California Gold Ribbon School, first opened its doors in the city of Anaheim in 1966. We currently serve over 750 students in general and special education classrooms, preschool to sixth grade. We foster a true culture of student leaders and learners where ALL students belong, lead and thrive. We have a significant populations of students with disabilities who are fully or partially included in general education classrooms. Our rich culture of inclusion has led to tremendous growth and learning opportunities for both special and general education students. Through Peer Assistance Leadership (PAL), students develop and demonstrate leadership skills. The Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) program provides students with strategies to be successful scholars and to prepare for college and career. At Baden-Powell School, no matter what language students speak at home, where they live, or whether they have a disability or medical condition, they LEARN, LEAD and THRIVE.

We are proud of our Magnolia School District preschool students, who are engaged in fun and educational learning at home with their families! Last week, students were given a Friday challenge of “Who could build the tallest structure?” The students and their families created structures using household materials. Once constructed, they measured and submitted the height of their structures to the classroom teacher. The winner with the tallest structure received the honor of selecting the Fun Friday songs to be played in their weekly class Zoom meeting. Check out these awesome structures that the students and their families constructed!
Magnolia School District Teachers Help Assemble Bags of Food

Magnolia School District Continues its Hard Work to Serve the Needs of Our Students and Families

Magnolia School District continues its partnership with Giving Children Hope, an organization that delivers weekly backpacks to some of our District families. Normally, these backpacks are filled with food and put together by members of their organization and then distributed to Magnolia School District families. During these unprecedented times, Giving Children Hope is able to deliver the food to our District, but is not able to fill the backpacks. We are very proud of our teachers, who step in and volunteer their time to fill these backpacks for our families each week. The District is so thankful to have such amazing and dedicated employees. The teachers response to the call for help was so overwhelming some of the volunteers had to be turned away. Teachers help assemble the food bags and distribute them to our families.
