Madrona School At a Glance


Founded in 1999 by a group of committed parents and teachers, Madrona School begins its 18th school year in the fall of 2017. The school now serves about 150 children in parent-child, preschool, kindergarten and 1st through 8th grades. Set amongst towering trees, tucked away in the heart of Winslow on Bainbridge Island, our school integrates a classical education with movement, the arts, and the wonder of nature, to meet each student's developmental needs. We are an independent and non-profit school, and are a developing member school of the Association of Waldorf Schools in North America (AWSNA).

We serve approx. 150 children each year: one-third in parent-child, preschool and kindergarten classes, and two-thirds of this total in the 1st through 8th grades.

Our students enjoy small class sizes; early childhood programs run at a teacher-to-student ratio of 6 or 7 to 1; grade school classes are capped at 18 students.

Families choosing Madrona School live throughout Kitsap County, including Bainbridge Island, Bremerton, Hansville, Indianola, Poulsbo and Silverdale.

Over one-third of families receive financial aid.

Our school campus is housed in the Eagle Harbor Congregational Church at the corner of Winslow Way and Madison Avenue. Our administrative offices are located at 219 Madison Avenue South.
