This is a great to school to be at.They have great instructors to help your child.My child has been here for two years and she loves it there.Even though, there average scoring is low doesn't mean it's not a good school.Every parent thinks that if the score at a particular school isn't high, they think it is a bad school.Madison is a great learning place and has extra activities to do.It isn't bad as people say it is.

Hi, I am student and attending to Madison High School. I am Hard of hearing student and full-time mainstream student. One thing I would like to tell you about Madison High School, I noticed that madison hs is on the rise. In the past three years, Madison High School has improve +87 points in our Academic Performance Index. Also Madison HS had being named a 'Breakthrough High School' which is one out of nine high schools recieve that award in the country. That is huge honor to being named 'breakthrough high school'.

A school where there is a tremendous opportunity to interact with students who are hard of hearing.

In the three years I worked at Madison High, I saw a school that had been dragged down into 'under performing' status,lowest AP passing rate, mismanagement and bullyinhg by a small clique of teachers turned around by the extremely hard work by a determined and dedicated princpal. Inspite of continual attempts to undermine her authority by self-appointed teacher leaders and their community stooges, the principal's dedication and efforts on behalf of all students at this school, have resulted in continual improvement in API and other scores. I am gratified to see the success and improvement evidenced by this school's scores, due to a great degree to the princpal's leadershp and commitment. The efforts of the new, enthusiastic staff also drove this tremendous improvement.

Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.
