    The administration is not supportive of those needing remediation and accommodations unless the student has a significant learning disability.

    Madison Avenue Schools (both upper and lower) can be compared to a private school. The class sizes are small you get complete attention from the teachers and staff and the children excel academically. Not to mention the other things the schools focus on such as art and science/technology. We could not be more pleased with the education being provided to our children.

    My children attend Madison Avenue Upper and I could not be happier with the quality of education that they are receiving. As a former elementary teacher I was very careful to check out the curriculum and testing levels of the schools in this area before we moved. Having level 5 schools for my children to attend is a blessing! The principal does a wonderful job and he sets the tone for the whole school's learning atmosphere. The fact that it has a strong focus on science and technology is a wonderful added benefit. Parent involvement is the learning process is highly valued and encouranged. I could not be more pleased with the education my children are receiving at Madison Avenue Upper Elementary!
