My kids have a balanced amount of work in each subject, and it has served them well as they all tested high in private high school placement (honors and above), allowing them to gain access to accelerated classes.
The values instilled and reinforced daily in the formation of ethics, respect and faith encourages the students to internalize these virtues and implement them throughout their studies and social environment.
Three of our children have been educated at School of the Madeleine, with the last getting ready to graduate from 8th grade this year after starting in the preschool program. Our eldest is also a graduate and was very well prepared for a rigorous private school curriculum. We are very grateful not only for Madeleine’s strong academic programs, but also for the discipline, time management skills, and confidence our children received in a nurturing and value-based environment. The teachers are dedicated, the administration is experienced, and the principal and vice-principal are accessible (and they know each child by name)! Our children have grown in their faith and their intellectual pursuits, and love participating in the sports programs and other activities offered. The partnership between parents and the school is remarkable, ensuring the success of each student. School of the Madeleine is a gift and we will greatly miss it!
My daughter went here for 6th grade and part of 7th, unfortunately we ended moving to the east coast before she could finish. The school is wonderful! After moving to the east coast, I constantly compare this school to the rest, they never come close. This is why; my daughter came in at 6th grade from a public school, the teachers were always willing to help her with the transition with coming into a catholic school. A lot of kids start in preschool/kindergarten, so when someone comes in at the age it can be difficult. It really never was for her, she always felt welcome. The principal, the vice principal and the teachers are all wonderful!
I have two children at the School of the Madeleine. They both entered the program at kindergarten. In the early years the school lays down a very solid foundation in all of the core subjects. Religion, math, English, reading, science and social studies. As they get older, new interrelated concepts are added at each grade level. It is wonderful to see our children grow in their academic journey at the same time they are developing a close relationship with God and in depth understanding of the Catholic church. The school community of parents and teachers are truly wonderful.
Madeleine teachers are dedicated, caring, and always go above and beyond to help their students. Our principals are amazing. They work hard to make our school the best it can be. Madeline students are respectful, smart and happy!
Unlike the parent that posted on Feb. 12, our family has had the opposite experience with respect to professionalism and communication with the faculty and the administration. We've had two children graduate from Madeleine and still have one attending the school. Over the many years that we have been part of this school community, we found the teachers to be well qualified. All of the classroom teachers have a teaching credential and more than half of them have a Master s Degree. We also have had no problem with accessibility or communication with any of the teachers, much less, with the administration. Both the principal and the vice-principal maintain an open door policy and are very visible and accessible during the school day, as well as before and after school. We can honestly attest to the quality education that our kids have received at this school. Our two oldest kids were well prepared for high school (each attended different Catholic Highs Schools) and now college! Sending our kids to Madeleine was the best money we ever spent.
I completely agree with the review on May 22. Both of my children have gone to a well known amazing, prestigious catholic school out of state and was recommended this one...an absolute disgrace. I am in awe over the lack of professionalism and communication of the faculty. My two children are in the elementary school. I now know why teachers can be unlicensed and work in private education..
