About Our School

Patrick Murphy, Superintendent

Domenico Spatola-Knoll, PrincipalMadison Elementary

The Madison Elementary school building opened for the first time at its current location on Legion Way in September 1999, replacing a 44-year-old building on Central Street. The school was designed to visually and aesthetically fit into the Eastside neighborhood by matching the peaked roofs of some of the nearby houses and the Spanish-style architecture of the Knox Administrative Center located on the same campus.

Madison Elementary School is an exciting place for students to learn and grow. Our school boasts a diverse preschool through grade student population. Madison has a staff and PTO committed to the success of its students.

The Madison community is highly involved in the education of every child. Enrichment activities such as monthly assemblies and the school-wide Science Fair are funded through the PTO (Parent Teacher Organization). Community organizations support Madison with school projects and also provide 100% of the school supplies for each and every one of our students. The entire Madison staff takes seriously the vision of ensuring each child reaches their full potential. As one of the of the smaller schools within the district, parents appreciate and value the “small school feel” of the Madison school community.

Madison’s programs are designed to give every child the opportunity for success both academically and socially. Volunteers come in regularly, and include Reading Buddies and classroom helpers. The Madison-Avanti Giving Garden is a blossoming partnership between Madison and Avanti High School with support from several community organizations. As a school community, we firmly believe in providing a well-rounded education which focuses on the whole child.

Measures of Academic Progress (MAP)

MAP is a district assessment that measures a student's developing skills through a series of questions that adapt to the child’s level of learning. Research on MAP indicates the results are highly accurate. The results help teachers measure growth and determine whether a student may need more support or more challenge. These scores represent Spring assessment.
