Inclusion plays an important role in St. Madeleine Sophie’s identity as a Changemaker School. A Catholic school at which 20% of the student population receives special education services, St. Madeleine Sophie views inclusion as an opportunity for all students, teachers, and parents at the school to empathize with each other and support each other in their efforts to make positive change in the community. As a result of the school’s efforts and investments to encourage inclusion and teamwork, 83 percent of fourth through eighth graders reported that they feel they belong at St. Madeleine Sophie Catholic School, and 96 percent of kindergarten through third graders reported that they like school.
