Acequia Madre is a school dedicated to creating high-quality learning for each child while dedicating itself to creating community
My daughter is only in Kindergarten but she attended Pre-K at El Dorado as well and has loved school since the minute she walked through the doors. The teaching staff is skilled and responsive. There is a wonderful sense of community. The leadership is excellent and the PTA is very active.
I have been a parent and volunteer at Acequia Madre for six years now. The quality of the teachers and principal combined with the emphasis on social-emotional growth makes this school very special.
This school has a wonderful caring teaching staff and the principle is accessable and responsive while remaining commited to the big picture. The art, science, math and litteracy curiculums are integrated in ways that reach children with diverse learning styles. The parents are commited and pasionate participants in making this school a great learning environment.
From an academic, music and art perspective, Acequia Madre is tops. There is tremendous parent involvement and a real team approach by parents and teachers to issues now facing the school. I have learned from the school as well and really support the direction it is taking. Beverly Garcia
More parental involovement than any other school in the district results in much higher quality of education for students. The kids are given opportunities at AM to experience art and music that would be unavailable to them in any other school in town. All schools should provide P.E., but the sad fact is that they don't. This school does, in addition to unparalleled music instruction and weekly art classes. I drive my child across town every morning, estatically happy that we got an interzone transfer to this wonderful school. The only thing that might improve this school would be the addition af a school-wide Spanish program, which was available last year but not this year.
Outstanding! Excellent arts integrated curriculum: all subjects: math, reading, science, language arts. Performing arts, music (all 1-3 take violin lessons, all 4-6 are in band),each class studies at least 1 master artist and 1 musician/composer; artists-in-residence program; community service programs; great parent involvement; wonderful teachers and incredible principal!
