Madison Central School Reviews
My experience at Madison was interesting. The teachers are fantastic. There are some opportunities, such as dual credit classes. However, opportunities aren't well advertised and one has to personally seek them. For instance, Colgate University offers local students the opportunity to take classes on campus, but due to the lack of advertisement at Madison, I am the only student taking advantage of this fantastic opportunity. As for college readiness, Madison doesn't have college prep classes/programs. Dual credit classes are challenging, but incomparable to actual college. Madison has many clicks. I was bullied for my academic focus. I am graduating a year early and my classmates are not supportive. Many students are poor mannered and immature. However, this isn't unique to Madison, just amplified because of its small size. Promotion of academics is increasing, shifting the focus from sports. Overall, Madison has its faults, but there are some amazing people.
I wouldn’t recommend moving here from elsewhere. People are not welcoming at all. Most of the people have been here for generations and seem to have a general distrust and lack of interest in people from outside of the little town. Very poor communication between school and parents. No PTA, but there is a sad excuse for a PTO with ignorant and self serving locals on it. There is no diversity other than ages of people. We sold our house and moved out of state but when we were there and our kids went to school there we hated it. I would suggest looking in nearby Hamilton or Clinton if you’re moving to the area. They are more welcoming to new people and have much better run and more professional people involved with their schools.
At Madison, I enjoy our involvement in the arts as well as our agricultural and FFA programs, however, Madison has left me at a slight disadvantage because of the struggles to make and maintain a good math department.
