Maddox is a very good school, offering the best in education and extra-curricular activities for its students.


Posted May 27, 2008

My son just finished 6th grade. I was worried before he started, but all went well. The 6th grade is mostly separated from the other grades, so bullying by older kids is minimized. There are several staff members and teachers that seem very interested in the well being and adjustment of the new 6th graders. There are a lot of activities to participate in, if one chooses. I have found the office staff easy to work with when I have gone there. My son has enjoyed changing classes and having lockers. He adjusted very well. The 6th graders are not allowed to participate in sports, just the 7th and 8th graders.

I am overall happy with maddox middle. The teachers seem to really care about their students. My child prefers this school to the magnet school she attended before. She says she actually is learning more here because the classes are longer and the teachers explain it better. The schedule rotates daily, for example Mondays you have 1st period 1st, Tuesdays you have 5th period 1st. I was worried about that but the kids get used to it quickly. Kids in 6th grade don't play sports but they can take a conditioning class to prepare for next year. The office staff is very friendly.

I am a former student at maddox middle school and i loved it. iam now in the 10th grade at walker high wishing that i was back at maddox i loved when my dady paid for all of my grades cuz we are rich. i also hade a lot of friends at maddox i was very popular i guess the teachers love the rich kids. but it was really fun i was extremely popular with kids . well that is about what i think about the school so parents dont put your kids there if you dont have a lot of money the teachers wont gie them good grades if you do. sorry!well there you have it ladies and gentelman that is maddox for you.

It is my opinion that there are too many workers getting paid for doing nothing but drawing a paycheck. There are too many office workers and not enough teaching going on. The teachers that are there aren't interested in the quality of education. This school is run mostly by politics!
