This has been my school for many years and I am graduating from here soon. I am heartbroken because Madrona has many great teachers, people, and classes, and I don't think I would be who I would be today without these wonderful factors. I love Madrona from the bottom of my heart. I'll miss you!

Madrona is a public "choice" school in the Edmonds School District, so your child must be selected in the annual lottery in order to attend (there are no testing requirements, so all students have an equal chance). We were lucky enough to win a spot two years ago, and our daughter is about to start 2nd grade in one of the primary centers. Her K teacher was a perfect fit for her personality, and if it is possible, she likes her primary teachers even more--adores is more like it. She looks forward to school, is challenged on a daily basis, is encouraged to help others, and is taught life-long skills such as teamwork, working independently, and respect. We are active members of the parent organization, and without exception they are caring, committed people who love their school and work tirelessly to improve it, whether it is working on the grounds, running several of the school-wide events each year, or organizing staff appreciation events. Knowing that our daughter will only attend one school before high school, including the difficult middle school years, is a huge benefit for us as well.

We are just about to complete our first year here at Madrona. It has been a wonderful experience in so many ways. My kids are excited to go to school everyday, even if they aren't feeling up to par! Teachers are excellent. They motivate the kids, teach over and above the curriculum, and empower the children to be independent learners from early on. The Principal is a very strong leader, is present at every event, and even sends congratulatory cards in the mail to students after performances! There is a very strong parent presence which is both welcomed and encouraged. It's an awesome environment and community.

After only five months at Madrona, our family is ecstatic to be part of this community. My older son is being challenged to achieve every day in many ways socially and educationally. My younger "reluctant reader" is getting daily attention and progressing marvelously. Parent involvement is evident in every hallway and at every event. Teachers are given the flexibility to be creative in engaging their students. Students take on the personal responsibility which is expected of them. This is a true community school and we are so happy to have found a home here.

Wonderful principal and assistant principal, very dedicated and experienced teachers, and a parent organization that has filled all of the gaps of state and district budget cuts. Ours is the only school in the district to maintain elementary band and orchestra, and to meet the needs of the tech lab, though budgets were drastically cut. MIT (Madrona Integrated Team) is the parent organization, coordinating several hours of parent and grandparent volunteering, and consolidating several fund raisers into one productive Bear Walk in the fall that exceeded budget needs. Special needs kids from the whole district are welcomed at Madrona and are supported by staff, volunteers, and peers. Search "Bear Facts Madrona" to learn more. Multi-age classroom approach allows tailored education for each student and good student interactions. Our second child went to pre-K at a nearby well-regarded private school that paled in comparison to Madrona. We are very pleased all around.

Madrona is an amazing school! I am an 8th grader her at Madrona and I love the sense of community. It's great to go to a school where I can be a role model for younger students. I love visiting the kindergarten classrooms! It makes my day. Also the teachers are so involved. They really care about the students. I have heard about other schools where the teachers just teach but here at Madrona the teachers inspire us and are just amazing people who really care about the us(the students). I love the small community as well; our middle school has only 150 middle schoolers so you know everybody. I am sincerly going to miss Madrona when I go off to high school.

Dedicated teachers who believe in life long learning. Amazing administration that believe and embody best practices. Super involved parents that for the most part are a positive influence on the school and their students. Children who are respectful, responsible, intelligent, world citizens and have good character!

Madrona and its volunteers are dedicated to teaching holistically to children. The student's experience as a person is considered most important at Madrona.

Madrona is a multi-age school where Primary centers have 1st - 3rd grades and Intermediate has 4th-6th. I love that my child is known extremely well because of the 3 year groupings and I feel that students are challenged and needs are being met. There is a strong character education program which I think is essential these days. I've seen leadership as a trait that is encouraged and refined! This is the best administration staff I've ever encountered. They are highly active in the classrooms, maintain positive attitudes and are supportive of the parents and staff. Based on what my child's teacher says, the school staff have strong beliefs in professional development which is important for growth. The teaching staff are skilled and dedicated.For the most part their parent support is positive however there are some who cross the lines with their demands.

As a non-graded school, elementary age children are grouped in 3-year classes. Older students learn not only from instruction, but by helping the younger students in the class. Formal music starts at grade 4 thanks to the middle school presence. Madrona has two great instrumental music teachers for band and orchestra. Few extra-curricular activities exist for elementary age students and those that are offered usually come with additional costs. 4th grade students are eligible to participate in the Madrona Children's Theater play. Usually, the play is a high quality production. The school pulls out all stops for it. Other nice features are three-day retreats (once every three years) and the chance to stay in a familiar environment 7th-8th grade, making a difficult transition a little easier.

I go to Madrona Non-graded and I love it there. I have been attending it since kindergarten and i am now in 7th grade. I have oppurtunities to take highschool math and play more than 20 instruments in band and/or orchestra. I have been playing flute since 4th grade. My school has sports teams available to the middle schoolers as well as clinics available for primary (1-3) and intermediate (4-6) The parents at my school are very invovled where we have a Madrona Integrated Team (M.I.T.)We also have a great ASB program where we vote a school president, vice president, treasurer, and secretary. We have over 25,000 dollars in the ASB account that we wanted to spend on a climbing wall but the idea was declined due to safety regulations. I plan to attend for one more year then I will go on to high school.

Quality of academic programs: above average. Availability of music: Outstanding. Level of parent involvement: above average. Some outstanding teachers. 'Non-graded' theme no longer encourages students to attend classes for selected subjects above their 3-grade (combined) class. Therefore 3rd grade and 6th grade students may not be challenged. The school was limited by the change in principals and resulting changes in leadership/direction/mission. The current principal has been there several years now and things are begining to stablize but the changes resulted in some great teachers leaving. One can get the impression that some of the teachers and administrators are there as a stepping stone to administration and promotion.

Our daughter has been at Madrona since Kindergarten and it has been wonderful. The teachers are dedicated and parents are all very involved. Parents are encouraged to participate and help in the classroom. The school is nongraded which means that first through third are together in the same room. This allows kids to work at their own speed while still being encouraged to excel. Those who need extra help also have it from teachers and parent volunteers. It has been wonderful. Enrollment is by lottery only. Highly recommend our school.

The MSP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Washington. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

The different student groups are identified by the Washington Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction. If there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
