Posted April 21, 2010

I have had two children that went through Madison, one finishing their Preschool program, and one that will be attending in two years. I have worked in other schools in the district, have nieces/nephews in some of the other district schools, even went to a few of them myself as a student - you can't find a more supportive community then you will find here. Staff & Prinicipal are the best. The smallest in the corporation, but the closest to a private school atmosphere for a public school.

This is my son's first year at Madison. He is learning so much and is loving his time there. They have really started his Education off on the right foot. The staff is great and they truelly care about each of the students.

Madison Twp. School is the best. I was in the last graduating class of 1964! The basics were taught, good discipline practices were met, we were well prepared for college, the teachers cared about you, plenty of extra activities, and parents were very involved and supportive.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Indiana used the Indiana Statewide Testing for Educational Progress-Plus (ISTEP+) assessment to test students in grades 3 through 8 in English language arts and math, grades 4 and 6 in science, and in grades 5 and 7 in social studies. The ISTEP+ is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Indiana. The goal is for all students to score at the passing level on the test.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
