At Madrona, We . . .
Expect and ACHIEVE Academic Excellence
INSPIRE Learning
GROW Continuously


“We believe, in inspiring students, promoting compassion and building positive relationships."

"Creemos en inspirar a los estudiantes, promover compasión y construir relaciones positivas con los demás."


Daniel Yarbrough Dear Madrona Families and Students,

I have had the pleasure of working at Madrona for the past nine years.  I will be stepping down as the Principal of Madrona at the end of this year.  Leaving Madrona is going to be hard as I have had the opportunity to build relationships with students, staff and families.  This is a great school made up of students and families from all over the world.  I have learned much about the different cultures that are represented by the community of students that attend Madrona. I believe that our cultural diversity is one of the many strengths of the Madrona community.  

I am going to miss working with the staff at Madrona.  Our students are very fortunate to have such caring and dedicated teachers and support staff.  The staff at Madrona work very hard to provide our students with quality instruction every day.  I want to thank you for all of the support that you have shown me and the school. 

Daniel Yarbrough

    We are drawing out the artist in our students, with the help of Arts Corps, a local non-profit. Teaching artists are leading in-depth visual and theatrical art lessons at four of our elementary schools. Scroll through our photo gallery to see Arts Corps in action in Emily Fiorito's sixth-grade class at Gregory Heights Elementary.
