I graduated Madison back in 2006. I originaly came to Madison because my mother had heard it was a great school. At the time I was getting in trouble or I was surrounding myself with trouble. As well, I am Dyslexic and have other learning disabilities. Adrian schools could not provide for me at all, and I learned nothing from the schools. When I transfered to Madison in 5th grade, I felt as if all the kids were 'StuckUp' ( sense alot of them at this time knew eachother sense PR K) After a while I found my spot and become very involved, ranging from sports, to many other after school activities. The Teachers & the Prinicple are just AMAZING they helped me so much and many of my peers. In 11th & 12th grade I dual enrolled at JCC. Now I am working on finishing my BSW and MSW.

I went to Madison when I was younger and I loved it and now my children go there and theres teachers there that I used to have. Madison is a great school my kids love it there the teachers there are so down to earth their awesome. And what I think is verry neat is that they reward the kids letting them know how good their doing like they have Madison's Finest and my little one enjoys that cause he gets to have ice cream with the principal. Madison is a #1 school

my children came from Tecumseh to Madison. they like Madison better!! Now at Madison, the teachers are so down to earth, friendly, helpful and make the kids confident. the students are all friendly to my kids and there no outsiders there. I haven't heard of any drug or threat problems at Madison. I`m so glad i moved here!

I have had two children graduate from Madison Schools. We moved from Ann Arbor where the children were lost in such a large system. Madison not only provided my children with academic success (one is now graduating from college, the other is right behind), but it also provided them with a strong sense of themselves as individuals and citizens. The strength of the school lies in its staff, its principals, and in its high standards for the students.

I believe the teachers and the administration have made a positive effect on my children. Two have graduated from Madison and gone on to college. One has just started high school there. I have found that my children appreciate what the teachers, etc. do for them. They help them when there is a problem, educational or otherwise. I have seen young people from hard backgrounds or situations come and excel because the staff really cares. This is making the students want to excel because someone care. The staff keeps a good watch over our children to ensure the safety of them. They do know what goes on in their halls. Thank you Madison!

About the tests


In 2013-2014 Michigan used the Michigan Educational Assessment Program (MEAP) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in math, reading and writing; in grades 5 and 8 in science; and in grades 6 and 9 in social studies. Currently, GreatSchools' ratings reflect 2013 MEAP results; ratings will be updated after 2014 Michigan Merit Examination (MME) results are released. The MEAP is a standards-based test, which measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Michigan. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.

Beginning in the 2011-2012 school year, the Michigan State Board of Education implemented new definitions of what it means to be proficient on the MEAP test. In addition, they have recalculated past years' results using these new standards for proficiency, making the above year-over-year results comparable.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Michigan used the Michigan Merit Examination (MME) to assess students in grade 11 in reading, writing, math, science and social studies. The MME is a standards-based test, which measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Michigan. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

Beginning in the 2011-2012 school year, the Michigan State Board of Education implemented new definitions of what it means to be proficient on the MME test. In addition, they have recalculated past years' results using these new standards for proficiency, making the above year-over-year results comparable.

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.
