Congratulations Class of 2020

We are so proud of our Warhawks. Here is a link to our senior awards video and also a link to our Senior Celebration. We will update everyone as we learn more about the possibility of an in-person ceremony. We hope our seniors were able to download all their files from their student google accounts – including pictures from cap & gown pick up day!

Yearbook Distribution

Unfortunately, yearbooks have still not been delivered to Madison. We will update everyone as soon as our yearbooks arrive and we can schedule a date and time for pick up.

Semester 2 Final Grades

As final report cards will not be mailed home, grades may be viewed through PowerSchool Parent Portal.

  • If the Parent Portal is not yet activated, parents have the option to view grades/marks through PowerSchool Student Portal.
    • A short job-aid is available to view grades/marks: English or Spanish
    • Parents will need your student's Student ID and Password to access your student's student portal information.

If you need assistance with your student’s ID and Password, you can call the Family Technical Support Line Monday-Friday @ 619-732-1400 from 8:00am-5:00pm through July 31, 2020.

For Students Leaving SDUSD

  • Seniors and other students leaving SDUSD might consider exporting their Google Drive files to a personal account so they maintain access to their documents after leaving the district.

Summer Opportunity for Students

Great opportunity for students. Mesa Community College is offering a 1-unit online course, for free, to SDUSD High School students over the summer. The course will teach students the fundamentals of becoming an effective tutor. Link to flyer.
