We are new to Madera. I transferred my daughter because she is a high performing student and the other WCCUSD school that she was attending didn't seem to be challenging enough for her. So far, we are in our third month and every day I inquire about what happened in school, in her classes. She seems very happy and she says that the kids in Madera are 'just as smart' as she is, which helps us because it challenges her. Madera seems to have a very active PTA and appears to be PTA-run. The one thing that I can say is, she is so, so, enthused with her P.E. Teacher (4th grade). I am just sorry that P.E. isn't an every day class. I hear that he is not your avg. PE teacher; that he teaches life values through PE> So far so good, we'll post more as we experience more.
Madera is a wonderful school. My daughter has attended since she was in grade K and is now in 5th grade. The PTA is wonderful. This is a place that your child and yourself will feel secure. They offer a variety of subjects not offered in some of the other elementary schools like Computers and science. I wish my daughter could stay on more year!
This is a great school but I have found some less than perfect teachers who seem rather old school and hostile towards the children. I think the many extracarricular programs are A+. but they d/c'd the chess teacher who was worth his weitht in gold. I would love to see this teacher come back because I don't have the patients to teach my child chess. Good luck : ) PS: this is just my experience.
Wonderful school with involved parents and high expectations for students. My son Had Ms. Devine for 5th grade-she was structured, creative and help kids to high standards.
Madera provides an excellent environment for students to excell. Academic results are outstanding as is the sense of community throughout the school. Great teachers and staff!
