    "School overall not focused on the academics. Teachers seems to be demotivated at all the time( not sure what is the problem is now because we all used to the economic crisis ). Many kids are not achievement oriented becoming burden to the class and to the teacher, holding back kids eager to learn and teachers wanting to teach more."

    "Unused how to rate Madrona, they have couple terrific teachers & staff ; However they also have teachers, teaching by intimidation, students are afraid to ask questions, I personally went to speak to the 7th grade Social Science teacher, and she was one of the most unprofessional teachers I have encounter; she behave like a teenager with an attitude. Some teachers are not able to explain at the student level, or the quick answer is to ask your partner, which to me is not teaching. They do have an Outstanding Counselor and Speech Pathologist they are both professional that have a great interest and caring for the students."

    "The teachers lack teaching skills at this school. They lack the energy it takes to teach children and, when questioned by the student to "explain in a different way because I don't understand," the teacher turns on the student and does not explain what was not understood, Needless to say, I took my child out of Madrona and into another school where he flourished. The principal also left the school because he could not tolerate the parents' complaints about the teachers."

    "This school used to be run with the precision of a nuclear submarine. With the take over by a new principal, it's more like Captain Jack Sparrow's frigatte. If you have options, go there."

    "I have two children here now, 6th and 8th graders. We've had a great experience here and both kids just love the choir/band teacher, Mr. Lewis -- he's a favorite teacher that we hear high school students talk about! Some of the teachers are so involved in the school and lead the after school activities and other programs that boost the morale of the student body and build their school spirit. It seems like some of these really involved teachers have all managed to have babies in the past year or two and can still juggle all this extra work! We feel very fortunate to have our kids in this school and really appreciate the quality of education they are receiving. I am disappointed that the PTSA isn't more visible. I see them doing lots of fundraising, but the only program I see is Adventures in Art. Maybe they are providing more than that to the school, but not getting the credit for it. I hope that's the case."
