Get in if you can. Simply one of the best public schools in the area. Rigid standards for academics and behavior. Great opportunities for involvement and knowledge of the arts including dance, theatre, art, language and choral/instrumental studies. There are lots of after school activities and very involved parents.

I could not be more pleased with Madison Street Academy. Parents are encouraged to stay involved and the result is a school with a community feel. Faculty members are very accessible and I have had no difficulty addressing any issues related to my child. MSA offers many extra-curricular activities and options to provide a well-rounded educational experience that meets the interests of the individual student. MSA expects a lot from its students and provides a positive environment where students can achieve these expectations. The staff is very encouraging and provides support to each student. I would highly recommend MSA to any parent, it is indeed the best school in Marion county.

Madison Street has new leadership and it's definitely reflected in the fabulous staff and student performance. I feel happy every time I walk my child to class. The staff and students really want to be there. Excellent School - get on the waiting list now by calling the school (as early as 4 years old). All students have to be tested to get in, all classes are accelerated and students are exposed to all facets of performing and visual arts. Top Notch School!

Madison Street is an awesome school for any reasons. I like it because they encourage and help children pursue academic excellence. My daughter likes it because half of the year she takes dance instead of pe. Also we have a lot of different cultures in Florida and Spanish is taught as part of the curriculum here. They have 2 art classes 3D and 2D, this helps the teacher bring out the artist in all of the children. On top of all of this our school is ranked an 'A' school. If I had my way it would be A++++ I think every school in the US should be this good.

I could not be more pleased with the education my daughter is receiving at Madison Street. An education, which includes the arts, was an important factor in sending her there. From wonderful teachers, to involved parents, to the performing arts, Madison Street offers so much more than just a quality education.

Madison Street has a great program for the arts there teachers are very well qualified. They help keep parents informed of your childs progress in certain areas, if your child needs work in certain areas they provide small groups to help with the certain area. They keep you informed of ways to help the school.

Best school in Marion County Florida. Madison Street always has the highest FCAT scores in the county. Would even rate higher if principal was more flexible and maintained better relationships with parents and teachers alike.

Madison Street Academy is proof positive that magnet programs develop our children to their fullest. Committed staff and parents work together, and the sky is the limit. This past year, our children had the opportunity to participate in a program with the Missoula Children's Theatre-at the school! The experience helped my son to re-focus on his school work and provided a sense of self-worth that is priceless. The FCAT test scores were the highest in the county, and that is no accident. The school is outstanding, and I am grateful that my son has had the opportunity to learn in such a well-rounded environment.
