    "I have a seventh grader who attends Madrona, and I am highly satisfied with this school. We moved from Harbor City and bought an (expensive) house just so my children could attend Torrance schools. Any of the negative reviews have probably never attended Los Angeles school district (not far from Torrance) Madrona is ranked 8 out of 10 on the great schools list for a reason!!! Its a safe, high ranking school, in a great neighboorhhod. Not to mention the wonderful community as a whole, with the library, and Torrance police station right in its backyard. No school on the planet is going to have perfect teachers, or perfect acadameics in a parents eyes....but Madrona is close as you could get.....Go Wildacats!!"

    "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."
