Madeira elementary has been a dream come true for my child with autism. I visited several school districts and private schools in the area before settling on Madeira, and this was the only school to truly view my child as an opportunity, not a burden. The staff is very invested in his growth, and they have been very flexible in working with his complex needs. They are not interested in a cookie-cutter approach to education and are creative, meeting my son where his needs are. They have a very nice parent group as well. I am a bit shocked at greatschools rating (seems very low), as my experience has been nothing but pleasant.
