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.
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.
This is a fabulous school. They have wonderful, supportive parents, first rate staff, a wonderful principal, awesome art and music program. I can not say enough about what an overall positive experience we have had at Madison Avenue K-2.
