Comparing MMS to Pajaro Valley district is impossible. Focus at Mt Madonna is on education and students ALL of the time.

Amazing doesn't even begin to describe Mount Madonna. Our daughter is in Kindergarten and is absolutely thriving. She is a quite, thoughtful child and we knew she would do well with the small class sizes. What we didn't know was the level of social awareness and deep love of learning as well as passion ...  Read more
