Madera has an extremely active PTA that meets monthly with 30 board members in attendance. A multitude of parents can be seen daily working within our school, helping us achieve our educational goals. Madera’s PTA raises roughly $100,000 every year, money which pays for a technology coordinator, music teacher, cultural arts assemblies and many of the other programs that help make Madera a very special place.
Madera is proud to have placed in the top two schools in WCCUSD in total reading, math, language arts and spelling scores for standardized testing. Our API score was 906, and we received accolades as one of the top elementary schools in the State of California. We have also received the Governor’s reading award four times.
At Madera we have high expectations for behavior and academic excellence. Students are encouraged to develop respect for themselves and others as well as an appreciation of diverse groups of people and their cultures. Students develop a vision of themselves and of others as active members of a world community. Our school community cares deeply for its students and uses established methods to provide a consistently positive and safe school environment where students learn and grow each day. We work to prepare students for the challenges that they will face in the future.
