About Us

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.

Preschool Students Perform At-Home Learning

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.
