Mission Statement

It is the mission of Madison Elementary School to create a nurturing environment for students, their families, staff, and the community which encourages caring, respect, lifelong learning, and citizenship.

Description

Madison Elementary is a uniquely community centered school. Because of our close proximity to the Salvation Army and other area shelters, we have had historically the highest rates of poverty and mobility for district. We meet this challenge with a variety of different programs meant to give students the help and support they need but often don't get at home. This includes our Welcome Room, which serves homeless students and their families year-round. A new addition to our approach is the oppurtunity for enrichment and homework support through an after school homework help program. Many students live in substandard housing with one or more parents absent the majority of the time. This creates a challenge for educators who want to se them succeed academically. Therefore, the supplementation of after-school help for "at-risk" youth could really make a difference.
