I just transferred to Madison this past year, and didn't know anyone. I was shocked to find out that everyone was friendly, though they didn't know me from adam. That wasn't the case at Grant or Lincoln. There were no clicks here. Through this school I have become more involved than ever; Theatre, Speech/debate, Journalism/editor, school leader, IGNITE. As the IGNITE leader I am proud to say that all freshmen will now have a huge support system, making their transfer easier. When looking at a high school for yourself or your child, don't pass up Madison, because we're not the richest, or because we are on 82nd, instead look inside at us. The diversity, the quality of teachers and class sizes, the immense opprotunities. We really are the best kept secret of Portland Public Schools.
I am very pleased with the small school re-organization at Madison. Class sizes are small. At parent conferences I was pleased with how well the teachers knew my student and how much time I was able to spend talking to each of them. A very caring and devoted staff. They are adding more AP classes each year. My child feels very safe at his school. Students have the opportunity to be involved in a variety of programs. The staff listens to parent and student input as demonstrated during the meetings and decisions about changing into small schools.
I've been a student at Madison for the past three years. The entire staff has been so supportive during my time there, and I feel like I'm leaving high school prepared for college. Teachers are willing to give up their personal time after school to give one-on-one instruction, and then go on to coach sports. I m especially proud of our speech and debate team, the Mad Mouths; they re winning award and tournaments all over the place! All in all, I am honored to consider myself part of the Madison community and know my peers feel the same. 8th graders choosing a high school could not do better than Madison: for academics, extracurricular activities, and general quality.
