Paul Felts, Acting Head of School
Madrona is an independent school that features big ideas. Our small pupil-teacher ratio (averaging 1:7 in core subjects) = big focus on the individual. Small school feeling = big family atmosphere. Small classes = highly individualized learning opportunities. At Madrona, we value differentiation and individuality as core benefits, not liabilities. Our educational goals and results, however, are anything but small. Simply put, we believe in a deep emphasis on traditional core skills, wedded to an increasing growth in student autonomy during their time at Madrona. Our children enter the school excited each day and leave fulfilled, happy, and looking forward to the next day. A warmly challenging curriculum, developed and delivered by exceptional teachers, results in outcomes which deliver the "Did I just do that?" feeling to children, and the "Did I just see that?" reaction in teachers. Madrona just works. And now it works for students from Grades K through 10.
