    My son's grades have dropped from A's and B's to C's and he is always upset because he feels his teachers don't want to help him. Think twice before you send your child to this school.

    Madison Middle is a great school. The administration and teachers really care about the kids. I don't why the first reviewer said those things about the teachers. Teachers really try to reach every student no matter how absent the parent.
