As a veteran music teacher and community member, I can say without a doubt Madison-Camelview is a top notch school! We have a caring and inviting environment for students to learn and grow academically, socially, and creatively. Dedicated professionals that are available to parents to service students needs. Despite what GreatSchools says we offer weekly structured general music lesson that focus on vocal/instrumental performance, musicianship skills, and provide many opportunity to demonstrate acquired skills through public performances. We are a Kagan-focused school which means we've been trained in student engagement, accountability, and cooperation. We are poised to a high ranking school like our sister schools and have big ambitions to prove that we are the best choice for students in our community.
Great school! Madison schools treat their teachers well and therefore get the best teachers in the greater Phoenix area working for them. I am a teacher in the Madison district and plan to send my children here in a few years when they are old enough to begin preschool. Go Camelview CUBS!
I have volunteered numerous times at this school and I have witnessed first hand how much the teachers care for their students.
I LOVE CAMELVIEW! My son just started 2nd grade (has been there since kinder), and my daughter just started kindergarten. My son is reading and doing work at a higher level because of all the help he gets from his teachers. All three of the teachers he's had at this school thus far, have been extraordinary! My daughters kindergarten teacher this year is already proving to be just as amazing.
I just was at kindergarten enrollment last week on March 7th, 2013. I was very impressed with the staff and their organization. My husband and I our out of district, we kept getting flyers in the mail regarding excepting students out of district. Long story short- On March 05, 2013 we went to the school in our district to find un-organized staff members, total chaos, and a bountiful of lies. I was not to happy at this point to be putting my daughter into this school and lucky I was going to Madison Camelview Elementary open house. It was like night and day between these schools. Upon arrival at Madison Camelview we had the vice principal outside to direct us into the building, principal greeted us in library (the library is amazing), all kindergarten teachers present during the presentation, school was clean and it just makes you feel at home. After the presentation I was praying my daughter would get into this school and it was nerve racking. The next day I got a call from the office staff saying she was accepted and I could not be any happier at this point. I am looking forward to this school year and can t wait to be a part of the Madison School District.
The Madison School District Self-contained Gifted classes (i,e. The REACH Center) housed in Camelview (grades 1-4) as well as Madison Park (grades 5-8). Camelview provides a balanced and safe environment for all of the kids on the campus. This is really one of the best gifted programs, endorsed by many of current parents. It is truly a hidden jewel. I have seen my kid thrived in the REACH classroom. There is no limit or cap on their learning, a truly individualized education. The teachers are expereienced and extremely effective with this group of kids. As a parent, I want to get the words out about this wonderful school and the gifted program.
Camelview is home to REACH, Madison School District's self-contained gifted program. It is a phenomenal program for the highly gifted student. The teachers are well-trained in gifted education and my children have excelled beyond my expectations and their own! We are winning competitions on a local and national level and the kids have fun doing it.
GREAT MUSIC PROGRAM TONIGHT. I HAVE 2 GRANDKIDS WHO GO HERE BEEN TO EVERY PROGRAM AWESOME ....WE LOVE MADISON
My daughter started Kinder this year at Madison Camelview and she loves it. Her teacher is the most patient and understanding teacher of all (I was mine were like that when I was in school). She is reading and doing math at a 1-2nd grade level. We are excited to have her progress into the 1st grade with the knoledge that she has learned.
Dedicated teachers, staff, and students. This school meets my kids' needs without question. My kindergartener was reading and doing math by the end of the school year. Some of her friends who attend other schools spent their kindergarten year in a glorified daycare, but my daughter really was challenged. Terrific school.
This school is excellent. The teachers & principle are vested in the children at this school. It is at the cusp of strategies in math & reading. I wish the school went through at least fourth grade!
My son started kinder last year going into school he knew the basic's his numbers 1-20, colors, shapes, abc's. By the end of the sch yr he was reading books, math (1st & 2nd grade level), writing complete sentences. This is is awesome and I recommend to all parents looking for their children to excell!
My daughter attended Madison Camelview last year. Her teacher was very young and quite inexperienced which only added to the problems she experienced there. As an only child, she has some special needs and obstacles to overcome, however when she came home and asked me if she was a 'bad' person, I knew it was time to find another school. She's attending another school in variance in lieu of Camelview, in my opinion, a Very lacking educational situation. BTW, the MAC program (before/after school program) there is so awful, it shouldn't even be licensed.
We are new to this school and I enrolled my 4 year old in the summer preschool and my 6 year old in kindergarten summer school. The first two days they both cried when I came to pick them up - -they did not want to leave. The teachers and assistants are wonderful and have helped me work through some discipline issues with my 4 year old. We will be attending Camelview in the Fall.
After-school care has great staff. The library is fabulous with a Reading Room that is carpeted and round and kid-friendly. Emphasis on reading and comprehension at a young age.
I truly enjoy my daughter being at this School because they have the nest teachers, and everybody is very well organized. My daughters love the School as much as I do.
My kids spent two years at Camelview. I was impressed with the music program. However, academically, I don't think the kids were pushed enough. I would like to have seen better follow up on homework assignments. I think the math program was lacking and the student/teacher ratio a bit high.
Camelview is the best school I have come across. The teachers and staff are really involved, which is great! I always get answers to my questions within the day requested. Mrs. Nieto is a wonderful kindergarten teacher and Ms. Carter is a wonderful first grade teacher. Good job ladies!
