LOCATION:

Mendota Elementary School is located one block off Northport Drive and near Lake Mendota and Warner Park on the northeast side of Madison.  Mendota is a neighborhood school representing a broad range of social, economic, cultural and racial diversity.  Stable families, diversity, three neighborhood centers with excellent after school activities and a growing northeast business community are key reasons why the Mendota area is a great place to raise a family.

CLASS SIZE:

Mendota is one of Wisconsin's Department of Public Instruction's SAGE (Student Achievement Guarantee in Education) schools, which is a state grant that ensures that class sizes of kindergarten through third grade will have a maximum number of 18 students.  This allows for small group and individual attention for reading, writing, math, science and social studies. 

NEIGHBORHOOD BUS SERVICE:

Although most students are within walking distance to Mendota, three school buses serve students in the morning and afternoon.  Special buses are available for students with disabilities.

COMMUNITY BREAKFAST, HOT LUNCH AND AFTER SCHOOL CARE:

Mendota offers both a breakfast and a hot lunch program.  The daily community breakfast program includes all students and staff.  A nationally recognized after school program, Safe Haven and AACE (After-school Academic Clubs for Excellence), administered by MSCR serves over 100 students beyond the school day, including an all-day summer camp.  "Kids Days Out" are scheduled during school breaks providing all-day care.
