About the Provider

Description: Madison’s instructional program continues to be noted for academic achievement. As a result, Madison Elementary School was recognized as a "California Distinguished School" in both 1997 and again in 2001. This esteemed award was bestowed upon Madison for due to our excellent instructional program, caring staff and consistently safe environment. Only 236 schools throughout the state of California received this honor in 2002.In addition, Madison is a Title I Achieving School.Initiated in 1984, the Title I Academic Achievement Awards program,authorized by the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) of 2001, honors high poverty, high achieving Title I schools. State Superintendent Jack O'Connell says,"These remarkable schools have shown that great gains can be accomplished by having high expectations of our children, and by teaching to rigorous standards that emphasize math and reading," said O'Connell. "These schools, which often face the greatest challenges, should make everyone in the state of California proud of our investment in public education.
"While they clearly have more work to do, they are beating the odds everyday. They prove that the notion that all kids can learn is more than just a slogan, it is a reality in schools throughout California," he said.
Our adherence to and implementation of the state standards completely drives our instructional program. Teachers plan together to ensure consistency from class to class. In addition, teachers in all grade levels use ongoing student achievement data as a lens to evaluate how well students are learning, and to design intervention lessons as needed. We also provide differentiated learning support through three Special Day classes, GATE cluster classes in grades 2nd-6th.In addition, we have both a full-time Resource Specialist and a Speech and Language Pathologist. The Principal works closely with the staff and faculty to maintain a secure campus and reinforce academic and behavioral expectations using the Capturing Kid's Hearts process.

Madison’s teaching staff is involved in the monitoring of student progress. Teachers and site administration use the “Results” process to review ongoing achievement data, work collaboratively to set new goals, and reflect on teaching strategies. Each grade level team reviews student performance data on a monthly basis to monitor student improvement. High expectations are reinforced by members of Madison’s Administrative Team,comprised of a teacher from each grade level and administrator, who plan improvement strategies and disseminate current instructional information to the entire staff. Our School Site Council (SSC), English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC), and Management Team continue to assess and monitor the information of the School Based Coordinated Plan. Closing the achievement gap between the various student populations continues to be our number one priority at Madison Elementary School.
Parent and community involvement is evident as Madison volunteers help in classrooms, attend parent meetings, and assist in special events throughout the school year. Students are honored at trimester awards assemblies that include high parent attendance. Parents of at-risk students are invited to regularly scheduled meetings to create and review interventions, and improve the home-school connection. Parents of English Learner (EL) students are invited to attend English as a Second Language (ESL) classes provided by our district Adult Education Program. We have an active PTA, School Site Council and English Language Learner Advisory Council.

School History
Madison Elementary School opened its doors to students in September, 1952. There were three primary teachers and a teaching Principal. All four classrooms were full and a waiting list of kindergarten children was established after the kindergarten reached sixty students. In September, 1953, three more classrooms were added and Madison School added double sessions to accommodate Riverside's rapidly increasing population. By 1956, six more classrooms were added and the enrollment soared to 580 students. The second grade students were all bused to Mountain View Elementary School. In 1958, the school library was created and a part-time librarian added to the Madison staff. During the summer of 1967, Palm School closed its doors and many of the students were transferred to Madison for the 1976-77 school year. Beginning in the 1987-88 school year, our school received students from the Woodcrest, Orangecrest and Mockingbird Canyon areas of Riverside. With the completion of new schools within the school district, Madison was then able to serve students residing within our own attendance boundaries. Madison currently has an enrollment of 860. A full-time Principal and Teacher on Special Assignment work closely with the parents, staff and students to maintain a safe, learning-centered environment.
