I've been a student at Madison for a while, I went to Madison Elementary then ended up moving and coming back. It's been hard getting back into things there, but I've gotten help and some of the kids there are great. I'm glad I came back to Madison.

My daughter has attended Madison Schools all of her life, and we have been very pleased. The teachers are great, also are the extracurriculars. The academics are very important to the school, as are the athletics. Madison is very concerned about the wellbeing of the students, parents, and staff. I would strongly reccomend Madison Middle School to anyone loking to enroll their student into a brilliant school!

My son has adhd he has been on the vip honor roll since starting at this school.and I like the way he has help with his school work he has to have his tests taken orally. I used to go to Madison School and I told my two sons it is a good school I do not like Adrian public school when my son went there he didnt get good grades there he couldnt keep up. I will always give Madison a high rating. . keep up the good work.. if parents are thinking about Madison as a school for their children it is the best place to get a good education and I dont ever have any trouble with the school Tammy Black

I like Madison school because it teaches well and they really work with your child. My son has been on the vip honor roll 3 times this year. When he was going to Adrian he wasn't getting those kinds of grades and his homework was dot to dot. Madison really challenges his mind and he loves it there. And they really seem to care and want to help your child. I wouldn't change it for anything. Madison has just helped my children tremendously and I thank them for that.

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.

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.
