    While this school may be OK for kids without special needs... it is NOT good for kids with special needs! Especially if your child has autism! The school has been uncooperative overall and I am beyond disappointed. Even more disappointed to find out that my first review was deleted and apparently only positive reviews can be posted. Hiding much?

    The teachers and staff do a great job of getting to know the kids and parents even if they don't have your child as a student at the time. The teachers my son have had so far have made school enjoyable enough that he still hates to miss school and is above his grade level in all of his skills.

    Great teachers and activities. Good set of parents there too.

    Madison is amazing! The principal is absolutely the best I have ever seen! He takes the time out to say hello to every child and parent he has made it a point to remember every child! My son has ADHD and the staff handles this better than I could have ever imagined! We recently moved to another state and sadly the school systems could never compare to the education care love and support from the staff at Madison!

    My son just finished 5th grade. He thoroughly enjoyed his time there. He attended Madison from kindergarten to 5th grade. If he didn't like it there or I felt he was getting the necessary education he would have went some place else. I am familiar with the principal at Madison. He cares very much for the students as they were his own kids. The teachers follow his example and take the necessary time with the students. I have nothing but the upmost respect for this school and it's caring staff. I can only hope the rest of his education meets the expectations that Madison achieved. I hope this helps. But if you have any questions about the area or other schools feel free to email me. I would be glad to help.
