About Madrone

WHAT IS THE LENGTH OF ENROLLMENT?

 

A student may enroll in Madrone at any time at the quarter or semester mark when being referred from within the district. Students arriving from out of the district may enroll any time during the school year. Our school is a participation-based program, where students earn credit for productive in-class work and meeting academic standards in their courses.

 

HOW DOES A STUDENT RETURN TO A COMPREHENSIVE HIGH SCHOOL?

To be recommended for re-enrollment in a comprehensive high school program, the staff considers the following:

  • How many credits are needed for graduation?
  • What courses are remaining?
  • Has there been improvement in learning habits?
  • Has the student participated in the credit recovery program? 
  • Strengths and weaknesses of the student.

The recommendations are provided to the school administrators and are communicated to the parents of each student.  Madrone’s principal communicates with each comprehensive high school principal regarding the students’ enrollment status and sets an appointment for the change of placement/enrollment of each student.

 

HOW DOES A STUDENT ENTER MADRONE?

Students enter Madrone through a referral process from our sister schools, San Rafael High School and Terra Linda High School or at the request of families after their initial enrollment in the district.
