Not far from New Haven, Madison is a coastal town and the site of the incredibly popular Hammonasset Beach State Park, which provides more than two miles of public beaches. Its historic downtown is home to a bookstore, restaurants, shops, and a century-old brick library, the E. C. Scranton Library. What's more, by limiting the development of franchises, community leaders work hard to maintain Madison's unique character.
Madison ranks third in Connecticut (after New Canaan and Darien) for student scores on the CMT and CAPT, two statewide standardized tests, and 94% of the class of 2009 went on to four-year colleges. But that's not all. In Madison, even the jocks are brainiacs: For the past three years, the girls' soccer team at Daniel Hand High School received the state's National Team Academic Award for a team GPA exceeding 3.25. Chalk it up to a tight-knit community and schools with high expectations and an abundance of opportunities.
