My son started to attend this school in the 6th grade. And I must say this is so far one of the worst schools I have seen or heard about. The students are awful, negativity all around, bulling, unfriendly and unhelpful personnel, with very few exceptions. They send students home when they sneeze accidentally, well, they send them to the nurse's office so the nurse calls you to go get your student (in reality, I don't know why the school has a nurse at all). Being a very mellow child, my son is emotionally distressed because of racial derogatory comments he gets, profanity, bulling he is not used to, and being a target for teachers who do not know or try to find out why and what is happening during class rather than having one target all the time, and much more. They do not give homework, very little. Classes are boring (I happened to attend a few), no excitement, no content, no interest, students have no interest whatsoever in classes (I am sure, there are exceptions, but these are only exceptions). In short, I am not having a good experience. Trying to find a different school. Awful, awful school.

I graduated from here back in 2009 and I wish I could go back every single day I absolutely loved it here. I got a great education, took honor classes with some of the most amazing teachers I've met. Now that I'm in college I still use some of the skills I learned back in middle school. Great staff, friendly and helpful teachers Not to mention a beautiful campus. - I will always be a bulldog

Great school! There are many enriching activities that foster a secure learning environment and a fantastic education for students.


Posted April 11, 2012

I have read the reviews here and the low numbers seem to come from those who are not educated or students who probably don't know any better. I am a parent here and a teacher in another district. Everyone I speak to there is helpful and it seems like the teachers care about the students. I saw a remark about amount of homework. HOMEWORK is not a baby sitter. Homework should only take about an hour at most. Homework should only reinforce the learned skills. So far a very good school.

I'm a former student of this school and I didn't really like it, I mean the school was somewhat fun, and there were a lot of memories, but it wasn't a trip to Disneyland either. The kids were mean, the staff wasn't very friendly, and we weren't really learning anything productively. A bit below average.

The children are learning nothing from this school. They don't give enough homework to the students. Madison Middle School needs improvement in all areas, badly.. It shows in the rate. They earned their 3 help them

I was a former student at this school and about the dangers of this school for me there were none. And the teachers are great.

The Magnet Program is great because it prepares students for a Magnet HS program which, eventually, prepares students for college and higher educaitonal achievements.

This school is not so great in the regular program, but I have come to find that the Cadet Corps and Magnet program are a great opportunity for our children and will definatley help them for their future life.

It is not really a safe school to me. I honestly would not recommenced it.

Academically unsuccesful, some teachers they dont care about student academic achievement, deans and counselor are no use , they dont perform as expected. Just talk and talk , they dont listen to your problem. You just see them around the campus with walkie talkie, the only people who works hard are the people in attendance office.

Math initiatives and technology are top notch. Staff motivates students to perform to top potential. Encourages children to think for themselves and to look toward the future with confidence and hope.

Teacher's lack edge in teaching.....Losing the kids interest in a positive future for 2007!
—Submitted by a parent


Posted January 11, 2006

My child has been going to this school for the past 2 years. I orignally sent my child because of the Star Trek science program. The teachers that ran the program have since left. I can't wait for him to graduate and leave. The student body is not diverse. Consequently there are quite a few problems.

The Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) School Experience Survey asks parents, students and employees about their school's learning environment. Results provide insight into school climate, such as whether the school is academically rigorous, engaging, safe, and collaborative. Learn more

We organized questions from the LAUSD School Experience Survey into five categories. The respondent group-level results (parents, students, and school employees) show the percent of each respondent group that agree or strongly agree that the school has positive results for that category.

Overall school results for each category are calculated by averaging across group-level results, ensuring that each respondent group is equally represented. Alongside the results for each school are the aggregated results across all LAUSD schools, which are provided as a basis for comparisons.
