Madison Elementary School District Reviews

I am so disappointed. My family moved to this district because we were assured that Madison was the best. I was really concerned when my youngest was bound for kindergarten. The teacher informed me that despite my son's advanced status, she could only teach the 28! Students to the "lowest denomination of the class". This meant that despite my 40,000 yaerly property taxes, my 5th intelligent child would receive a marginal education. We decided to send him to All Saints Episcopal Day Schppl. Prior to moving here from Pennsylvania, All our other 4 kids went to outstanding public K-12. I am sad to say, the worst public school in Pittsburgh is still better than the "best public school" in Arizona. Some one must be the avenger for our next educational advancement and generations.

the were kind and encouraging while I struggled. They were always there to help and genuinely cared. The students were much less appealing. Undisciplined and insistent with bullying. There had to be assemblies to not smear feces on the wall in the bathroom. disciplinary action was very lacking and everyone got away with stuff. The teachers were really the only good thing but from what my sister told me, after I graduated, all the good teachers left. Leaving rather poor ones that caused the students lives to suffer academically and drugs became rampant in the schools. The administration did nothing about this and implemented asinine rules such as assigned seating in the cafeteria, no eating outside despite overcrowding inside, and only allowed to use the nurses restroom and not the ones closer to a student's class room. These are just to name a few. Going to the schools in this district was detrimental.
