There are a few bad teachers that make the whole school look bad. My child learned more this year about fashion than actual schoolwork. They have a big focus on art but sadly language arts and science are not included in their curriculum. I believe school teacher tenure plays a lot into the poor teachers and this school could be the best in the state if it weren't for that.

MAUE is an excellent school, in an excellent district, consistently ranked one of the best in the state.

The school is fine if you have a cookie cutter child. If you have a creative spirit, it will not be nurtured or even appreciated.

I have found this to be an unwelcoming place for me and my child. I would not recommend this school to anyone.

This school has been a great disappointment. We moved to Madison for the school system but found out all this consists of is worksheet after worksheet. The children are marched in circles everyday in the pretense of being healthy.

The teachers and principal are wonderful and truly love the chidren. The parents are also very involved and supportive of the school and of the teachers. All of which makes for a fun and nurturing environment for the children to grow and learn.

I have three children that have/will attend Madison Avenue Lower and we have been extremely pleased. I am most impressed by the attention to the Arts.

I have taught school in three different districts in this area. These are the best kids around and its not just from the teachers.. it really starts at home. Keep doing what you have been doing, MAE!!

This school has the most awesome pre-k program available in the state of Mississippi. I have met several other parents who have, in fact, moved here from other nearby states for thier child to go to the program. This is 'above and beyond' at its best!!!

There some woderful teachers at Madison Ave. The parents are very involved as well. Only complaint would be the size of the school and large classes.

If you want your kids to say things like; 'I got me some food.' or 'I ain't got no crayons.' Then sign your kids up today. Laungage arts is not a strong point of this school!

You will not find a better school anywhere! Awesome parents, teachers, administration and the greatest school district! Not a negative thing can be said about this school except that it is growing too fast!
