School of the Madeleine is one of the largest Catholic elementary schools in San Diego with two classes of every grade from first through eighth. We are proud of our strong Catholic Identity and our faith community of teachers, families, and staff. Our preschool has a 3-year old, a 4-year old, and a junior kindergarten classroom. The kindergarten program focuses on the development of each student with manipulatively-based lessons. It includes a traditional one-year, a pre-first, and a two-year (TK) program. Various academic programs, such as Everyone a Reader, advanced math, STREAM, and technology are implemented to enhance and enrich our high-school preparatory curriculum. School of the Madeleine’s spacious campus is safe and secure and includes a large grass field, a running track, and three play structure areas. Students at School of the Madeleine strive to Live Faithfully, Learn Responsibly, and Lead Respectfully.
