Welcome to Madison Elementary School District

  • Madison Elementary School District is committed to inspiring passion for learning and leading in an ever-changing world. Our mission is to foster success for all through dynamic, engaging, and relevant learning experiences focusing on students’ academic, social, and emotional growth.

    Located in Phoenix, Arizona and founded in 1890, Madison School Elementary District has grown to eight schools with an enrollment of nearly 6,000 students in grades preschool through eighth.

    During our more than 125-year history we have remained focused on our commitment to educating Arizona’s children and preparing them for the future. Madison provides a strong educational foundation by embracing a child’s natural curiosity about their world and helping them develop into lifelong learners.

    Our schools offer Signature Programs which allow students to develop their talents and explore new opportunities in addition to their regular academic classes. This helps students become more engaged in their classes and have a more rounded educational experience. Providing the best education for our students also means ensuring they have the facilities and resources to be successful. Thanks to voters approving Bond and Override ballot initiatives, we can provide our students not only with strong educational resources and technology, but also safe and modern learning spaces designed to enhance student learning.

    We offer before and after school programs, as well as school break camps, where students have a productive environment to work on homework and enjoy fun, supervised activities with their peers.

    Our focus on learning extends beyond our students. All Madison teachers and staff are provided opportunities for professional development to help them grow and continue to be the best educational professionals for our students.

    The educational experience we provide at Madison is guided by a strategic plan and systems and processes that have been accredited by the international AdvancED organization.

    We thank you for your interest in Madison School District. If you have any questions or would like to schedule a tour of any of our schools, please feel free to contact us!
