Madison Elementary ELL (English language learners), Special Education, Hispanic, and low-income students are learning especially well. In fact, the school met all federal Annual Measurable Objectives (AMOs) in 2011-12 and 2012-13. Maintaining student academic achievement growth from one year to the next shows intentional, strategic instruction to meet individual student needs. That kind of work, demonstrated by sustained student success, caught the attention of education analysis at the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) in Olympia.
