Why Teach at Madrona School Society?
Madrona School is a small independent school that offers an academically challenging program for gifted and exceptional students from Kindergarten through Grade 9. When students leave Madrona, they attend other independent schools, Catholic schools and local public high schools. At Madrona School we aim to educate the whole child and our expertise is in educating gifted learners in a non-traditional way.

Our school exists for the education of gifted and exceptional students. We embrace these unique young people, and prepare them for the world we share. We want every child’s day to be academically and emotionally fulfilling. Our purpose is to prepare our student both academically, socially, and emotionally for their future paths.
