Madison Metropolitan School District Reviews
I like how MMSD is very accepting of people's gender, race, sexuality, and religion. Generally the teachers are really good, and understanding. The district has its ups but I feel that the bad outweighs the good in this district. Like many districts, we have had our problems with incidents in our schools. The students with disabilities support needs to change. Not just noticeable ones, I'm talking about those with internal disabilities and differences who cannot compete with the "normal" students academically. I, by diagnosis from a doctor, qualify as one of those students. Ever since Freshman year, I have been asking my school representative for a 504. I knew I was struggling, and that i needed change. But I got little support from a 504 representative for our school. I know it’s been hard for other students who have tried to get a 504 or an iep. It needs more support for the students, more staff members who know/are willing to support and be patient with these students.
Teachers are great! Makes you feel a home, like you belong. Really care about your education well-being. I would make it 5 stars, but some of their policies are slightly off. Lunch lines are a little long, but the food is worth it. There are HUNDREDS of clubs and sports and activities that you can do after school. The work load itself is understandable, and most teachers are aware of the work that other teachers give, meaning they won't ever give you more than 1 hour of homework per night. Very do-able. security all around the school, and I felt safe.
Through all my years of attending Madison schools it's been average I say. Since there are some ups and downs I've been through. One of the things I liked about Madison schools is the amount of diversity from elementary through high school, although it sometimes depends on which school you go to because certain neighborhoods aren't really that diverse. As for the teachers they are okay, I have met lots of teachers who are nice and stuff but teachers who are really strict do exist because I did get in trouble a few times for doing nothing and it wasn't a good experience at all. It left a bad taste in elementary school for me so I was glad I'm done with elementary school since they nit picked on every little thing you do which makes sense but some teachers rather express their anger at you than just teaching you discipline. As of school events though its okay, there not that many events in school only a few and that's about it so overall I would rate Madison schools average.
