We moved from the Huntsville City School District to Madison County Schools. Our child attended a HCS from Kindergarten and all I can say is that we couldn't have made a better decision about moving! The level of care, education resources, teacher professionalism, and overall structure of MXR has more than proved itself as well organized, more than competent staff of educators. Lets not forget the bus drivers, they are awesome! Safety and security of the children on the bus is number one to them and that is extremely appreciated! Principal Dennis is always available and extremely helpful! I recommend this school to everyone that is looking for an well oiled, supportive, caring, and highly talented group of educators for their children!

My kids have gone here PK-5, and I have taught school here as well. Teachers and admin are well informed, most have at least a masters degree, and they strive to make this a 21st century school. Technology is at the forefront as a tool for teaching, however children are always first. There is plenty of support available for students in need, including the medical clinic ( and soon dental clinic) attached to the school. A great place to send your children and to work,

This school is one of the worse schools I have seen. The teaachers are all unhappy, always yelling at the kids. They act as if they hate there job. Why would you become an elementary teacher and be so bitter toward kids. If you have issues with the school you would be better off to talk to the school board then get the principals attention. This school is really not a good school at all. Its old, and doens't function well. Most of the staff is very unpleasant to deal with, rude, and make you feel very unwelcome when you come to the school. The food in the cafateria is nasty gross. I wouldn't feed it to my animals yet alone my kids. The only happy people you see in the school are the lunch people. Always very sweet to the kids, and very upbeat. This school should not be ranked at a 7, it should be more on the ends of a 1 or less. If you can avoid this school do it at all cost. You will be greatly dissappointed with the teachers and staff.

What a great school! My was a bit apprehensive at first, but as a former teacher myself....I was very impressed with the resources, attitude and atmosphere of the school. This is our second year at this school, and we are very pleased. My oldest attended last year (now at Sparkman Middle, another great school!), and he was well prepared for the transition.

I have two children and this is our second year at Madison Crossroads. I am very pleased. The teachers are excellent and a lot of them really do go above and beyond ! The administration is very supportive and friendly. As far as the PTO, I have learned just this year (and my oldest is in 4th grade!) that it really is what you can put into it as parents. The teachers and administration have so many tasks they have to do it's impossible for them to do it all some times. Parents make a HUGE difference!! This is the first year I've been able to volunteer and it is such a rewarding and enlightening experience that I would encourage all that can possibly volunteer to do so. You will not regret it.

This will be our last year of elementary school! Over the years we have developed a great relationship with both the administraiton and teachers. We have a great support staff, and great parent volunteers, not to mention a national award winning math specialist who works tirelessly to improve our students' math skills. Great place to be involved and feel a part of everything.

I am admittedly a 'school' snob and was quite concerned about the financial status of fellow students as indicated on this board and others like it, not to mention the school scores ... yikes. We entered K with a backup plan to pull our child out and enter him into private school if necessary. Our experience thus far has measured up to the DOD school systems for Kindergarten. We will start 1st grade next week, hoping to have the same experience as last year. It really is all about the teachers ... and so far we have had some great ones!

My children have gone to MXR for 4 years now and I absolutely love it. The staff is very caring and always go above and beyond the duty of teachers. My children have loved this school and I look forward to the coming years at MXR!

My son began his education at MXR this year. He has had the most wonderful experience. The Kindergarten teachers strive to bring our Alabama students above the median. The PTA needs improvment. A shift toward more attention on Parent/Teacher communication would be a great improvement. The PTA is more involved in other activities rather than focusing on the Parent/Teacher relationship. Parents would be able to help assist their students in correcting or improving their learning ability if the Teachers were given the forum to gudie us toward these goals. A mandatory Parent /Teacher conference per grading period would be a great improvement.The system of course is in need of any financial assistance it can receive. However, both economic and proper use of what they have has been achieved. I would choose to move to this school district again if given the choice. Sincerely, HDJ
