My husband and I have a 12 and 10 year old........schools are very good, however, you have to remember you get out what you put in......lots of homework required. If you want the grade you have to work hard.....of late there has been a large emphasis on writing. Secondly, there is a good amount of support for gifted and challenged children. We also have a handful of private applications in and around the area. Many of the schools have exceptional music programs and work hand in hand with the University of Wisconsin to offer extra curricular opportunities for children. Biased or not Madison is a wonderful community with many many opportunites. I encourage you to come for a visit. My husband and I assist a lot of couples with relocation needs and many times set up school interviews for our clients....it really helps to see the school in action. We map out a city tour and offer some fun fact about the city......and, yes, we show you the good and bad. Drop me an email if you need more details. Seriously, you will love it here!.......don't forget your boots and warm clothes for winter - we do get that lovely White Suff!
