Some adults act like children, shame on them.

We loved this school. It's small, has great teachers and my son was in the honors program, which was also great. Wish he still attended this school instead of junior high.

My child has experienced bullying at this school, which has been reported each time within 24 hrs of finding out about each incident. Each time I am told "I will speak with the teacher" as it happens in the classroom. In Effective as we are now talking 4 separate incidents where an article of clothing is ruined by another student. One shirt no biggie but 4 times and at 30.00 plus a shirt you would be upset as well. Bulling in the making.

5 stars! We love Madison! Our oldest has autism and is higher functioning. Madison has been able to make necessary accommodations for him so that he can be in a regular classroom, with pull outs as needed for special ed and extra help. They even hired an aide just for him for about half the day when he needs someone close by for some extra attention and help. The teachers both of my kids have had here seem very attentive and seem like they genuinely care about helping my kids to be successful and to not only learn, but to enjoy and be excited about learning. We have been so impressed with the staff at this school and are so happy our kids get to attend here!!

I'm very disappointed in this school, I chose to send my children here because it was conveniently located near my house. There are very good teachers at this school but the principle is very absent from her job leaving most of the teachers with no support, there are no consequences for behavioral problems and most kids don't even know who she is, you rarely see her interact with them or even out on campus checking on things. The specials (Music and PE) are a complete joke. Music is not fun and kids don't learn much. Patting to the beat on your lap. Big deal. PE isn't any better and it's more like a drill instructor teaching then anything. Hands on your knees look straight ahead! Don't follow your friends, quiet! Don't dare look away you will find yourself sitting in a time out for the rest of class. Morning/lunch recess is a nightmare kids just going crazy pulling jump ropes down slides, students throwing sand at other students, bullying and other problems. The list goes on. Again it all comes back to having an absent principle. We have seen lots of people leave the last two years and now we will be leaving as well. It's very sad I hope that eventually for the teachers sake they will get a principle in there that does the job!
