This is a great school! The teachers are wonderful!!! I grew up in this school, and am proud that my daughter is also!
—Submitted by a parent


Posted February 19, 2012

Madison school has served the community well in providing a relatively broad education in a small district. Our three children have all gone from Pre-K through middle school grades here, and have found the atmosphere to be very supportive and caring. As at any school the state testing is a constant focus of the program, but our children have found the teachers inventive in finding challnges for them.

Madison Central School is your typical upstate rural school. By enrolling here a parent can be quite assured to have a safe, normal education at the kind of school you dream for your children. A prior history of great athletic teams plenty of past banners hanging in the old gym. A rebirth of excellence is happening there. Teams are finishing well in the sectionals. Good coaches and traditions. Current Superintendent has gotten the picture from day one I give her good grades. School board seems to have the community's best at heart. School district has turned around now growing faster than any other in Madison County. If I was looking to transfer my children to a safe, normal place to grow, get a good education, prepare for the future then I would give Madison Central School a through look.

About the tests


Beginning in the 2012-2013 school year, the New York State Department of Instruction implemented new assessments designed to be aligned with the Common Core State Standards. The new standards for proficiency in these subjects are higher than in previous years and the percent of students earning a proficient score is expected to be lower as a result of this change. See this letter from New York's Commissioner of Education for more information on these changes.

In 2013-2014 New York used the New York State Assessments to test students in grades 3 through 8 in English language arts and math, and in grades 4 and 8 in Science. At present 2013-14 results are available only for English language arts and math. The tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New York. The goal is for 90% of students to meet or exceed grade-level standards on the tests.
