Madison Park Business & Art Academy Reviews

Madison Park Academy may not be considered the best school to some but it has many available opportunities and choices for a person's future. Whether the person would want to work or continue their study, they would help you how ever they can. They also include things like personal counselling and therapist for those who need it and have been trying to hear out the voices of students more to improve their school. Though something I recommend they change is to help students who are struggling in school. Although they do help you with this, they don't tend to every student. They don't seem to give students who are not doing so well with grades, mostly, a chance. As grades shouldn't be used to mark someone's intelligence or skills, giving only those who have a good g.p.a more opportunities. A good way for the school to start is by hearing out these students concerns to see if they actually care for their future or if they may need any help.

Great school, the teachers really care. I wish they had more afterschool classes that I was interested in OK. Me and Neighborhood is not good at all and the food is bad but the teachers and the staff there are great. It makes it worth while showing up to school every day because I know people care about me. They take the time to come in on weekends and once school is out on vacation to help me catch up on homework our capstone. They got me interested in things that I would normally not be interested in like protesting and watching sports games after school. Normally I would not be interested in things like that. Also this year I made three friends that I hang out with them every day. The kids want to show up at school every day because they like it here. I wish I would’ve found out about it sooner. I just found out about it last year and now I’m graduating this year. It would’ve been a great experience to be able to have spent all the way from kindergarten until now here.
Madison Park Academy is O.K in some ways. The administration is not very well organized. Teachers are not informed on changes and that leads to student and staff confusion. Other than that, the students stick together during the school year and make the best of what we have. We have been waiting for a high school building since our Seniors were in 6th grade and they are barely building it. It seems like they procrastinated it for too long.
