I am a parent of more than one student who matriculated at Madison for the 2010-2011 school year. For the most part i have positive experiences w/ many of the teachers. There was one teacher, grade K, who I thought was most inappropriate w/ her assessments. I discovered she had a record of recommending that many of her students remain in grade K for an additional year. I found her communications w/myself to be limited and contradicting. If it were not for the positive experiences had w/ many of the teachers at Madison, my child would not be returning for the following school year.
Madison is a great school.I have a kindergardener and a 1st grader....they love the school and I know they are learning a lot. The teachers Mrs gargas(k) and Mrs Lepage(1st) are great.They communitcate with me and that makes me feel better as a parent.The principal is not that socialable and I am an out of district parent so it makes it hard but the teachers make up for the pricncipal.
Madison is a good school. My daughter loves going to school everyday. My only complaint is there are no programs for kids who excel in reading or math.
I love Madison as a school for my kids. My oldest attended here, and my youngest just started Kinder last year. I agree with the parent below that Mrs. S is a great teacher! And the parent below her commented about the principal...I agree. I could do without the principle in this school. Not sure about how she treats out of district families, but her support skills as a principle are lacking.
This was my son's first year at Madison and his teacher (mrs sanders) was the best. She paid attention to his needs and recommended he doespartial time in 1st grade and that worked great! And the latchkey teacher (mrs lyons) was wonderful. They made sure i was comfy leaving my 'baby' for the first time. Any questions I had they had answers and they offered suggestions to help me. This is also the 1st yr he is attending the schools summer camp. So far not loving it. I like the fact that they have lots of activies for the kids but there is no communication from the 'teachers' even checked the flolders every day. Didn't find out until 3 weeks into the program that my son had'nt been eating lunch. I could have made other arrangements.
This is my childrens first year at Madison the teachers are excellent but you have no support from the Principal. If you do not live in the district the support system for you is not good.
My child has been at this school since kind. and will soon be in the third grade. I love the school, the teachers, and the high expectations!
Excellent staff. Very caring teachers. Especially, in the resource room. Positive reinforcement. Very good learning environment. Only thing missing is all day kindergarten. Hopefully coming soon.
A Great school with a Great Staff! A good example of their staff is when a substitute teacher (now a regular teacher there), noticed my duahgter had trouble sitting in her seat right..You see she is very tall and her knees didn't fit under, The teacher arranged for the desk top to be raised by the schools janitor! A small act of kindness? NOT for my daughter...It was a HUGE kindness and showed my daughter that SHE mattered enuf to them to go the extra step! Also, the music lessons on the recorders was also very special this last year! This school understands the importance of Music and the Arts. I could go on and on with praises of the last 5 years of my daughters attendance here.I will just say one more thing, however, THANK YOU Madison!
