My Daughter has been attending Madison Avenue Baptist Academy since 1st grade, and I have no complaints it is truly a blessing to have this school around in this area, there academic curriculum is an excellent program and I also love that not only do they teach the basics but they also have bible as one of their subjects, and that is something every school system should have.

This is a great school - I have my 3 children in the academy and I can't say enough good about it. I'm very much involved with my childrens education and I love the fact that the curriculum is Christ centered. They just opened thier high school last year. Just praying if this is the right high school for my son.

I have 2 children that attend the school and I am very happy with school. The Beka program that they teach from is wonderful. But, I would like to see more Black History taught in the school.

I have 2 children enrolled in this school and I am very pleased with their overall performance. Both of my childen are on the A Honor Roll. In my opinion the teachers are willing to go the extra mile to make sure the children are receiving not only a good academic education but also a good spiritual education.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

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.
