My experience with Madison was not very good. The 8th grade counselor is very uninvolved, uninformed and not sympethetic to the emotional needs of our young people. My daughter entered in January 2006, she was placed in a math class that she did not belong, therefore her grade point average kept her from attending activities. When I finally spoke to her counselor, he had no idea of her previous math grade and said he wasn't the person I should talk to I asked who, and he didn't even know the princples phone extension.

I have had three student attend this school. It has been the worst experience I have ever had with a school. I had one child in Special Ed, One in regular Ed and one in the gifted program. There has been harrassment, poor judgement by the teachers and the main principal does not follow up when there are issues. The assistant principals are not bad. The counselors are horrible. I takes weeks to get a response and the response is usually: 'there is nothing that we can do.'

Unfortunatly our experiences with Madison have not been so great. The counseling team, I found, to be unwilling to help in certain cases. The administration is extremely slow in contacting parents when a call is made. For the most part, there are teachers who do care for the children but when there is a 'problem' teacher nothing is done to resolve the situation. And lastly, there is no communication with the families of the district concerning important events. If the information is sent out it is usually after the fact.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 New Mexico used the New Mexico Standards-Based Assessment (NMSBA) to test students in grades 3 through 8, 10 and 11 in Reading and Math, and grades 4, 7 and 11 in Science. The NMSBA did not report Science results in 2012. As of 2012, New Mexico no longer uses the New Mexico High School Standards Assessment (NMHSSA) to test high school students, and instead uses the NMSBA to test high school students. The NMSBA is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New Mexico. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
