I have attended Madison for all three years and I am currently a freshman in High school, although I do not attend Pontiac schools anymore, I do believe that Madison is a good middle school I learned more than I do now and my high school is a blue ribbon. Some of the children at the school may be a handful

The principal is awesome but can only do so much. With the lack of parental support and involvement and the state of the district it is amazing that the principal has been able to keep things as positive as they are. Parents,the district and society in general must take a firm stand against students

My son currently attends Madison and though I think the principal and assistant prinicipal work with what they have. I wish there was a way that they could improve the academic programs. There is a need for classroom maintenance. The music teacher had one of the best bands in the Christmas parade.

Some how the young teachers need to find a way to get control of their classes instead of letting the children control the classes. I am glad they are going to have uniforms for next school season.

My daughter went to this school, she's in the 9th gr now, and I have one entering this school this year. I only wish that were not the case. Most of the teachers are there only for the pay and don't give a care about the students safety or acedemic achievements. The amount of racism in this school is

Although she was on the honor roll, I still feel she is lacking acidemically. For teachers and staff to be so worried about the time of the day instead of grades and being mentors, it is shameless. Racism and poor education certainly take a stand here. Read less

* In 2012-2013 Michigan used the Michigan Educational Assessment Program (MEAP) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in math, reading and writing; in grades 5 and 8 in science; and in grades 6 and 9 in social studies. The MEAP is a standards-based test, which measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Michigan. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level. Beginning in the 2011-2012 school year, the Michigan State Board of Education implemented new definitions of what it means to be proficient on the MEAP test. The new standards for proficiency are higher than in previous years and the percent of students earning a proficient score is expected to be lower as a result of this change.
