First of all, drugs , alcohol, and bullying happen at ALL schools. Madison Middle has gotten a bad reputation due to parents that dog the school in these ways. Parents that trash talk the school this way have to partially take the blame upon themselves. It doesn't happen at ALL when you sit back and complain about everything the school isn't doing, when you can walk yourself up to "The Hill" and do something about it! Madison Middle is a GREAT school, and doesn't get enough credit due to criticizing parents. Sincerely, a former Panther

Not sure my feelings on this school, bullying going on in locker rooms during PE, Clothes being stole from kids lockers. Which by the way they have to share. Principal reactions seems to be slow coming.

Madison middle school is a great school! The best part of the school is the band program. The band teacher has won many awards for the school and recently we have gottten a distinguished rating in the district 11 middle school band festival for the 6th grade and proficient for the 7th and 8th grade. If you are looking for something fun to do here, join the mms band.

madison middle school does need help, the principle and some of the teachers seem to be too envolved in activities outside of school that is affecting the way they go to work and teach our kids. The best person at the school is Butch, always greets with a smile and will stop and tell you if he had to get on your child about anything. My son attends there and he seems too like Mr. Anderson but Ive never been able to talk to him myself when I have called there for some reason or other. We parents need to take control of some of the things that go on there and get more envolved before our kids are again just part of the system. The board of education and this new superintendent needs too take a close look at whats going on there and take action.

Madison Middle school is a school that is improving. The new assistant principal is amazing. He is the reason for the difference this year. He is making positive changes. They have many good teachers and Mrs. Fritz works very hard to help stop the bullying. I wish more parents would get involved in this school. Do not just trash it. Help the good educators make it better!

Our family relocated here in Richmond from South Florida, with great expectations. We love the area however, have been so dissapointed in Madison Middle to the point, that if we could't get our child out for the next school term we were going to home school. Our child was bullied on and off the whole year for the first time in his life, his grades began to plummet. Our child went from an A student to bringing home an occasional D and F. We received no concern from the school staff at all. I find it very concerning that a teacher can see a childs behavior, demeanor ,and grades so drasticly and never contact a parent. Needless to say, our child will not attend Madison Middle next year, we have made other arrangments. Thanks, God Bless

I attended Madsion Middle when I was in school loved it so much I became a middle school teacher. I found the teachers really cared about my learning. They even had special programs to help me to do well.

I am very happy with Madison Middle. My oldest daughter had a good experience there and my younger daughter is in 6th grade there at this time. Our new Principal, Mr. Winkler, has already had breakfast with parents of each grade level and has discussed the school in length with us and asked for our input. Both Mr. Winkler and Mr. Cornette, the Vice Principal, have supported our Soccer teams and football team by coming to home games. The teachers are exceptional and supportive and always have time for parents and can be reached by many different means. I have already been on a field trip and helped after school for athletic events and have seen first hand the care, warmth and concern all staff has for our children. I believe your reviews are outdated. Parents working with and supporting teachers- working with students- together - make the difference.

I am very concerned about the leadership of this school. It appears there are several 'groups' of teachers who have very different ideas about education and the teaching of our children. I often question who is running this school! Admin. or teachers? It appears that the teachers are dissatisfied and our kids are the ones suffering. Perhaps they need to re-evaluate their goals and objectives. My suggestions to new parents of MMS would be: 1.Never throw away a paper that has been graded (teachers seem to have a hard time keeping up with assign. and homework). 2.Don't be afraid to talk to Ms. Fritz-she is super! Our many thanks to her and the few who are dedicated and truly care about our kids. We have had great feedback about the new principal and have high hopes for a new, positive environment for MMS.

I'm very concerned about this school and its leadership. My daughter has only attended 1 year and I'm considering transporting her to Lexington. I've discussed my concerns with the principal, but to my knowledge, nothing has been done to address the problems other than a note being sent home to parents informing us that alcohol was on the premisis. My daughter has witness other girls, her own age, smoking pot and taking pills in the restroom, in which they were splitting the pill and sharing them between classes. Thank God that my daughter and I have open communication to discussed 'peer pressure' and drugs and how it can effect your life or she would have no idea. If you have the opportunity to redistrict your child to another school system please consider doing so.

My son recieved an excellent education while at Madison Middle. I was extremely impressed with the work of Randy Neeley, Vicki Fritz and Kendall Gadd. He really enjoyed the experience and the athletics.
