Madison Public Schools offered various different opportunities for their students, through endless extra-curricular activities, multiple sports teams, their arts and music program, and many clubs. Being apart of this school district has given me character, confidence, and the ability to achieve any goals I strive for. Because this school district is so competitive, it helped me be able to become the hard-worker that I am today, and be able to exert a lot of effort with every class I have taken.

We have been very happy with the schools in Madison - from the crossing guards that know all the kids names to our school principal who seems to be everywhere at once, the school feels like a true family that cares about your child and wants them to succeed. The enrichment offerings are wonderful, the special reading programs are great for students that need that extra push. I would like to see less snacks and "junk" in the lunch room, and better meal options, but with the addition of the village fresh option they seem to be working on it. But I do believe it could use some extra help!
Great community school. Does a great job of preparing students for what comes next. As a senior, I feel very ready for college. Academically, I feel very strong and have learn how to think and be organized and disciplined. I feel the material presented has been challenging, though I would have liked to have received more instruction and critique in the mechanics of writing.

There are many opportunities to get involved. The schools at all levels are well-supported by parent involvement and fundraising. The schools are also an important part of the community, both by being in a small town and by engaging in volunteer activities that support the community.
