Robert M. Pyles STEM Academy, a California Gold Ribbon School and home of the spirited Panthers, first opened its doors in the city of Stanton in 1958. Almost 60 years later, we currently serve over 750 students in general and special education classrooms and we are the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics Academy in the Magnolia School District.. We partner with families and the greater community to encourage, empower and expect that our boys and girls become responsible citizens in our local, national, and global society. Each child is provided a challenging educational program that develops intellectual, technological, social, emotional and physical growth by caring and committed staff members.
On May 9, 2022 our District Superintendent, Dr. Frank Donavan, was honored with the prestigious Tracy Gaffey Award. The award is presented to one administrator each year and is in the memory and spirit of Tracy Gaffey, long time leader in education.
We are all deeply saddened by the horrible tragedy that occurred at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas earlier this week. The safety of our students and staff is our number one priority. I want to let you know what we have done to keep our schools safe and the resources we have available to address the social-emotional well-being of our students, families and staff members.
We are in the process of greatly expanding our Expanded Learning Program options. We have afterschool and summer school programs available for many students this year. For the 2022-23 school year we will have afterschool and summer school options available for all of our students.
We are pleased to announce that our Superintendent, Dr. Frank Donavan, will be honored with the prestigious Tracy Gaffey Award. The Association of California School Administrators (ACSA) presents this Award to one administrator per year that mentors and guides other administrators and contributes significantly to public education and educational leadership.
