    This school has allowed and helped my daughter to excel in several areas. I love the atmosphere and the faculty.

    This school has nothing to do with the Canton Public School district. This is a Madison School District/ school. Not Canton! Big difference between the 2 school district. Same county but that is it.

    I can't imagine a school better than this one! We have 2 girls that have gone here since it opened and we have had nothing but great experiences! It has the Best of the Best!

    Fantastic principal. Caring and well spoken teachers. Great environment. We were very concerned about sending our child to a public vs private school in Madison. We have had an amazing experience at Madison Crossing. Several people I know have pulled their children out of private school to send them there.

    Madison Crossing Elementary is a fabulous school. My children love it here and so do I as a parent and a teacher. Madison Crossing is full of excitement. I've never worked or been a parent at a school where ALL the teachers were positive. They work together planning as a team so they can utilize their time with their students. They truly care about each child as an individual creating an environment that's 'just right' for each child. Aside from academic learning we also focus on the physical well-being of our students. Each morning our students walk the halls to fun music for fifteen minutes. This allows the younger ones to get their wiggles out and allows the older ones to wake up. We are all ready to start our day in the classroom after the walk. Madison Crossing is a new school but could really use money to go toward purchasing library books. I definitely beleive that Madison Crossing Elementary is the best school yet!

    Madison Crossing has the most awesome administrators teachers staff parents and children. We all work together to create an awesome learning environment for our children. We are always looking for ways to raise money to do even bigger and better things for these children.

    One of the best schools in the state. I am glad that my grandson lives in the Madison Crossing school district.

    I can't say enough good things about MCE. We transferred my daughter from a private school there in the 4th grade and have been so pleased. The teachers counselor and principal are wonderful and caring people. They are responsive to questions and concerns and I always received both emails and calls when anything came up. This school is well run and the teachers are happy - which makes the environment conducive to learning. My daughter's teacher even came to some soccer games! Can't beat that! Laura Pitre
