    My kids are currently attending Polson MS and are receiving an excellent education that is preparing them for high school and beyond. The course work is challenging and homework is not lacking however the teachers are readily available to the students for extra help before and after school. But even with all the hard work the school has great spirit and the kids have fun either in sports theater music or what ever their area of interest is. The schools drew us to Madison and the location has kept us! GREAT TOWN! I believe the parent involvement in the school system is a primary driver for why the school system is so successful.

    Polson Middle School is a great school for anyone 7th-8th who wants to learn the basic {and much more advanced} education that they will need to prosper in life. All subjects are equal and above state standards and I am sure that almost all the students will live well educated lives because of attending the Madison Public School System {includes Polson}.
