Matilda Torres High School is named after a beloved educator in our district who served first as a teacher from 1969 — 1979 (10 years), then as and counselor at MHS from 1980 — 2005 (25 years) in the Madera Unified School District. Mrs. Matilda Torres was known as a tremendous student and community advocate. She was a champion for students and she wholeheartedly embraced the philosophy that all students can achieve at high levels. Mrs. Torres loved her students and built relationships with them that transformed their lives. As a result of her relentless love and her impact on our community, the Madera Board of Trustees proudly named its newest comprehensive high school after this remarkable woman in an effort to honor the legacy she left behind.
Our amazing new high school is a 57-acre development on the corner of Road 26 and Martin Street. This location was strategically chosen to reduce travel time and traffic congestion throughout town. The passage of bond Measure G displayed the overwhelming community support for this new high school. Torres High School’s modern campus will deliver on the commitment to provide 21st century facilities that ensure all students are college and career ready. The school design blends modern architectural concepts, offers flexible learning spaces, and an inspiring atmosphere. Design elements were made collaboratively with input from industry partners, experts, and educators. Classrooms are designed for flexible seating arrangements that facilitate the use of technology and interactive learning. The campus features modern amenities including a phenomenal gymnasium, an Olympic-sized pool, a multipurpose stadium equipped with a track and field, baseball-softball fields, and tennis courts. In partnership with Camarena Health, the campus will also house a school based medical facility to meet students and staff healthcare needs.
Torres High School offers Career Technical Education (CTE) programs including Arts Media and Entertainment, Business and Finance, Education and Child Development, Health Science, Hospitality, Tourism and Recreation, Information and Communication Technology, Marketing Sales and Service, and Public Services as well as a pathway for Engineering and Manufacturing which is home to MadTown 1323–Madera’s world champion robotics program.
MATILDA TORRES HIGH School will be a definite standout for its fantastic facilities. However, it will be its all-star cast of extraordinary teachers, counselors, coaches, administrators, and various classified support members who will truly be the source of motivation and inspiration for students to dream big and achieve success.
