Madison Public Schools Reviews

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.
The teachers are amazing! The principal is really involved. My children are learning and love to go to school. There's always opportunities for parents to get involved. The buildings are in very good repair. My son with learning differences gets so much help everyday. The lunches are healthy. My kids play several sports and they have amazing coaches and plenty of equipment and fields
