This is an amazing school! We moved here from Irvine when my eldest was in 1st grade. We were welcomed by everyone. My oldest child is now going in to 5th grade and I have another going into 2nd grade. I'm thrilled with everything that this little school has to offer.

I love La Madera because the teachers, parents and students all have ownership in the school and work together to make it a great place to learn!

Hosts a Special Day Class program where GATE students from other elementary schools in the district can come to La Madera and be in an all-GATE class. Also has the best volunteer base I've ever seen!!

Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
