Mendota Elementary

Mendota is a vibrant and diverse school on Madison’s North Side and one of MMSD’s first Community Schools. We’re 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 community is a great place to raise a family.

Welcome to Mendota Elementary

We pride ourselves on developing strong, responsive relationships with students, parents, and our Mendota community. We hold our students to high academic and behavioral expectations and believe that all our Scholars can achieve at high levels.
