10 Parent Reviews for Madison Avenue Elementary School

I have had three children attend this school and have been impressed with how the teachers and principal have challenged my children to learn at the level they need. The teachers have welcomed my presence in the classroom. The PTA has started this year (2013-14) off well with a super fun back to school ...  Read more

This school has a very biased idea of who is eligible and worthy of advanced academic preparedness. There have been students that have demonstrated that they have what it takes to study at higher levels but have been demoted or kept back because they are socioeconomically disadvantaged. They teachers ...  Read more

The principal, Mrs. Hayes, is a real asset to this school. She is a 'doer' and gets things done! The teachers are excellent and care about the kids. This year's PTA is the really good. It is well organized and a positive part of this school. Our test scores keep rising at an amazing rate!

Speech & Language therapist is more outstanding then words can say! Resource specialist is absolutely awesome. I would highly recommend this for any child needing these services. Regular Ed teachers have been great, they are very accomodating and truly accept ALL the children!

Not the best school for promoting original thinking. Principal does not follow through with teacher issues. Upper grades behind in curriculum required at testing. Misspelled words on one teachers bulletin boards... all year!

I think that my child has excelled here at Madison. I am very involved in the classroom so that might be a big factor. We do not have any special music, art, etc.. classes for the kids, which I wish we did. Parent involvement is limited, most parents work and/or don't think they need to help. I do ...  Read more

This is a decent public school. My daughter is in her second year and I am a regular volunteer. I am dissappointed in the states budget cuts that cause poor teacher student ratios. I feel that the teachers are overworked and our children suffer. The overall supervision of the children is average. ...  Read more

When it comes to safety, I don't think that the office staff takes proper precautions. When I went to pick up my daughter from school, they didn't check my ID. The office Secretary, did not know me as I have never seen her before. This is very alarming to me. The teachers are awesome. They always ...  Read more
