Thank you for visiting Madison's website, home of the Patriots. I hope you will find it informative. Please allow me to tell you a bit about our fantastic school. James Madison Elementary School is in the Desert Sands Unified School District. We are located in Indio, a city in the Coachella Valley, and in the heart of the Southern California desert. (Yes, but it's a dry heat...) We are 561 students strong, serving grades Kindergarten through fifth. 
Students at Madison School take pride in knowing they have a safe and caring environment in which to learn and grow. The parent involvement is further evidence that education is an important component of the neighborhood culture. Not only does Madison boast an excellent Parent-Teacher Club, but parents can be seen volunteering daily in all aspects of their children's classrooms as well as the school in general.
 In short, James Madison Elementary School is a respectful, nurturing environment that provides everything students need to be successful. Please come by for a visit!
