year, our former career school configuration will be replaced with learning
academies that will be similar in structure and focus. Each pathway will have an Administrator that
oversees the staff and students that are associated with that pathway. Students who are undecided regarding their
career pathway, will be designated as a general education student and will be
assigned an administrator and counselor.
Additionally, the career pathways will be housed in offices located in
four different geographic areas on campus.
This type of organization will allow for personalization and
collaboration among parents, students, counselors, administrators and teachers.

community. These vital relationships
ensure that Madera High School will continue to offer programs that equip our
students with College and Career readiness skills. This community link allows for ongoing
collaboration through Pathway Advisories, classroom participation, donations,
and community outreach. As an example,
the Madera Chamber of Commerce and other community organizations provide
enormous support for the mock interview/portfolio platform. The interview process prepares our students
for the future job market and has also resulted in students receiving job
offers by the business community.
High School also offers a variety of opportunities for students to participate
in extracurricular activities. Thirty clubs and co-curricular organizations
enable students to become involved in their school and community. Additionally,
over 600 students participate in the 60 athletic teams that represent Madera
High School at the freshman through varsity level. We believe that a
well-rounded program is necessary for preparing a student to be successful and
strongly encourage participation in these programs.
