Madison has improved every year my son has attended - it keeps growing with better programs for students and families, more funding and parent support like the performing arts programs, art club, writing club, garden club, YCare before and afterschool (my son loves it there), small reading groups tailored ...  Read more

I'm very surprised anyone would say this school is terrible. My daughter is now in high school but she spent her entire Preschool through 5th grade at Madison and she loved it. The students don't care for the Principal being she appears to talk down to them, but she talks to everyone like they are 6-years ...  Read more

This school is terrible!! we moved and had to transfer from SouthBay Elementary. At SouthBay, the teachers respected each child and family free from judgement. Madison fails at making students and families welcome and unique. The principal is a joke! I don't know why she is there, if you have a problem ...  Read more

Madison is a very unique school. It's very small, with only about 180 students in 8 K-5 classrooms. In addition to tenured and dedicated teaching staff, they also have a reading specialist, a special ed teacher and many paraeducators, who are all wonderful with the kids. Madison is proud of it's ...  Read more

I find it very amusing that the most recent reviews state what a wonderful school Madison is in everyway! Why are students transferring out of this school to other schools farther away--but in the same district? There are children who live across the street from Madison who have transferred out! The ...  Read more

Madison is a great smaller school. An amazing Preschool, and has recently shown off its community spirit with the overwhelming support and participation with the new children's garden.

My daughter attends Madison and I love this school! The ratio of student to teacher is lower and then get a lot of extra funding. I feel that because of that there is a lot more 1on 1 time for students. The other great thing about Madison is the reading program. Every student in the entire school is ...  Read more

I have two children in Madison. My eldest is reading at a couple grade levels above his own. The staff is friendly and the attmosphere is one of genuine desire to enstill a want for learning and cooperation among all. The new 'Time to Think' room is working toward helping children recognize their ...  Read more

I'm very disappointed in this school. It saddens me that students cannot be kids, creativity is stifled, children do not want to go to school, my child has been miserable 2 of the 3 years he's been there. Staff can be extremely nice or extremely disrespectful and they definitely live by the 'labeling' ...  Read more
