Open Quote Was a little nervous going in as I had seen the rating and wasn't sure what to expect. We LOVE Madrona! The teachers, Principal, students, and the small but mighty PTSA all really care and you can feel a shift in the energy of the school. I think great things are just around the corner for this school, but that isn't to say that great things haven't already begun! The play this year was amazing, we enjoyed helping out at Garden work parties in the school garden, the after school programs, once implemented, are awesome. There is a healthy snack program, Multicultural night is an amazing annual event that really showcases the diversity and community of the school. We may be moving in the next year, but Madrona will always have our hearts. Close Quote

Open Quote This our daughter's second year at Madrona, and we're glad she's here. She started first grade behind her grade level in reading, and she's ending first grade reading way above her grade level, thanks to her teacher and the school's reading interventionist. She's enjoyed the wide array of afterschool programs, from yoga to story drama to Girl Scouts (full disclosure: I am co-leader of her troop. We started with twelve Daisy Scouts, and now we have forty-five kids from kindergarten through seventh grade. Yes, I'm biased, 'cause they're great kids who make a great troop). I've found the staff responsive, whether it's the counselor helping her with anxiety, her teacher helping her with leadership, or her principal helping with a bully (who is now one of her best friends, thanks to the principal's intervention with the kids and all of us parents). Yes, we were freaked out about the test scores, but test scores don't show the whole picture. They don't talk about the kids who are dealing with the stresses of homelessness, violence, and just being a kid in the 21st century. The PTSA struggles to raise funds and get more parents involved. And we deal with the luggage from ten years of old newspaper articles, blog posts, and playground gossip. Come to a tour and see for yourself. Madrona is our neighborhood school, and our daughter wouldn't want to be anywhere else. Close Quote

Open Quote This school has gone through an amazing transformation over the last 5 years. We live outside of the school boundary zone and have opted two of our kids in to attend here. The teachers and administrators know the names of all of the kids and are interacting them directly every day in meaningful ways. Close Quote

Open Quote Madrona is the quintessential neighborhood school, situated in the "sleepy" neighborhood of the same name. My daughter has attended Madrona for the past three years and she enjoys it thoroughly. The student-to-teacher ratios are excellent, all of the teachers are dedicated and highly invested in their students, and the PTSA is highly active, contributing thousands of dollars in fundraising efforts to support programming and activities for the students.

Notably, Madrona is a diverse school, attended by many difference races and ethnicities, and it is this diversity that is one if the school's major strengths. My daughter has come away with an appreciation of the rich heritage of her neighborhood as well as an understanding of several different cultures among her peers.

There are many extracurricular programs offered and the school makes a concerted effort to engage the broader parent body and community in its many activities, including drama, cultural programs, music, and more. Additionally, the school has also become home to one of the largest Girl Scout troops in the Western Washington Council.

There are many aspects to Madrona that the numbers and persistent aspects of its past do not convey. It is a thriving and dynamic school and we are proud to support it. Close Quote

Open Quote My son and daughter attend Madrona and we have been extremely happy there. The teachers are passionate, kind and professional. The small size means that my students are well known throughout the school and are given extra attention to push them to achieve at their highest possible level. I also appreciate that the student body is racially integrated, especially since many of the schools in central cluster are highly segregated by program (APP or Montessori verses general ed). I believe my students are learning invaluable things by being in a school that includes many different types of people. The school is a real gem that many judge without having stepped foot inside it. It has its challenges as every school does but it also has extremely dedicated staff, parents and students who work hard to ensure that every child is getting a good education. This is one school that you really need to see first hand before judging it - don't judge based on test scores! Go on a tour. Talk to the teachers and parents before deciding if its right for you.

Open Quote I'm currently and 8th grader at Madrona and let me tell you it is a really good school. The school challenges students to push themselves and has a very open learning environment. The one downfall is the middle school is so small with only 150 kids you feel a little cramped. The teachers for the most part are fantastic the school seems to be a little sexist sometimes as guy restrooms do not have doors but girls do. The school is quite old they were supposed to start building a new one in 2009 but then the budget took a nose dive. So all in all its a decent school. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.

About Immunization Rates:
Kindergarten Immunization Rates: This graph shows the percent of students in the school who have all of the required doses for the vaccine type for kindergarten entry (complete). The following vaccines are required for Washington State kindergarten entry: DTaP (Diphtheria, Tetanus and Pertussis), Hep B (Hepatitis B), MMR (Measles, Mumps and Rubella), Polio and Varicella (chickenpox). The data comes from schools reporting to the Department each school year. Schools report total counts of students based on each student’s Certificate of Immunization Status, which is parent-reported and is not health care provider verified. The goal line is the national Health People 2020 target of 95% completion for these vaccines for school age children.
Protected Students: The number and percent of students in the school reported to have all required vaccinations for their age and grade.
Students with plan: The number and percent of students in the school with a temporary approved plan for getting caught-up on required vaccinations. These students can remain in school if they follow this plan.
Students with exemption: The number and percent of students in the school reported to have any exemption type for at least one vaccine.
Unknown: The number and percent of students whose immunization status is not known. These students do not fall into any other category – they may be missing required vaccines, but have no temporary delay plan or exemptions. Students with no signed CIS on file are also counted here.
