Madison Elementary School2

While this school is fine for children without special needs, I would not recommend it for kids with special needs. They do not believe in "labels" and are against IEPs... which means that if your child has a special need... they may not get the services they need (and likely won't get any services without a fight). They particularly lack in ability to identify and recognize disabilities such as autism spectrum disorders (even when a child is already diagnosed). Otherwise it is a small school, great for kids with no special needs who do not have difficulty making friends (a little cliquey at times).
My grandson attended Madison for the last 5 years. He has some special needs and his needs were more than met by the wonderful school staff. Not just the teachers but everyone is always so helpful. I am sure if it weren't for the dedication of the staff at Madison he would not have done as well as he has. He is now in 6th grade and will be attending McCombs. I can not begin to tell you how very much all the help we have gotten has made our lives so much richer. Thank you for such a wonderful school and all the great memories.
