GET AN INSIGHT INTO
MADRONA'S LEARNING COMMUNITY AND
Madrona's In-Person Open House is a great opportunity for families to experience the learning community and educational approach of Madrona Independent School.
At our Open House, you will get to meet our Admissions team, educational staff, and tour our school. After learning about Madrona, you will be given an opportunity to ask questions about our admissions, programs, and more.
Madrona School exists for the education of gifted and bright students. We know that each student’s gifts are different, and we celebrate the unique qualities of our students to prepare them for the world we share.
At Madrona, our advantage is our low student-to-educator ratio, which allows us to focus on project-based and independent learning. The team at Madrona acknowledges that many gifted students are advanced in some areas but need support in other areas. Our teaching approach allows us to intentionally address and personalize the asynchronous pathways of each of our students.
WHERE ARE OUR MADRONA
After leaving Madrona in 2019, I attended the University Transition Program at UBC, graduated from high school in 2020, and began pursuing my university education. I’ve just completed my second year of a combined Bachelor of Science degree in Physics and Computer Science, and Masters of Management degree, both of which I will graduate with in 2024. I’m now working full time as a software engineer intern at Dialogue Health Technologies, where I’m able to combine my passion for coding with my interest in helping people and making the world a better place through technology.
At Madrona, our team places great importance in understanding our gifted students and working alongside parents to create better learning environments, better relationships, and a more fulfilling childhood for our students and their families.
Our low student-to-educator ratio allows our team to focus on fostering these three relationships with our students;
Every child deserves to feel seen, heard, and understood. Our teachers have the capacity to get to know, understand, and listen to each student, and to respond to each students' learning needs and struggles.
Teachers are given the opportunity to establish trust between them and the students. Students who feel safe and secure are more open and receptive to exploring new concepts.
Our low ratio and small class sizes allow students to form deep and meaningful connections with their teachers and their peers – fostering lifelong social-emotional skills and mental wellbeing.
