My son is always being picked on hit and picking up bad behaviors. This school is not for a parent that wants their child to have a bright future. My husband and I have decided to remove our son from this school. There is no proper supervision of my child as well.

Mendota serves an economically diverse neighborhood, and it does so in a manner than inspires excellence among its students. Teachers and staff are atuned to student needs, and achievement has progressively increased. It is a gem that we are proud to call our own.

Mendota Elementary is remarkable. Test scores prove that the education is first rate. What's most interesting is that nearly 75% of the students qualify for free lunch. We've always heard that test scores and poverty are entwined... but that's not the case at Mendota. The students are taught by experienced teachers with high expectations. It is a friendly environment that's conducive to learning!

Mendota serves a very diverse community and despite high student mobility and a student poverty rate that ranks among the highest in the Madison school district, Mendota's test scores and other measures of student performance rival or exceed district schools serving the most stable neighborhoods in Madison with the lowest levels of student poverty. Based on everything the research says about the strong correlation between poverty and student achievement, Mendota should be failing. But a dedicated and talented staff and very supportive parents have worked together to make Mendota an unqualifed exception to the rule.

Mendota is a school filled with the best kids and most dedicated teachers. Our school is so great that every year we have teachers from other schools that want to be a part of our staff. I am so proud to be a teacher at Mendota.
