    I have had two children that went through Madison one finishing their Preschool program and one that will be attending in two years. I have worked in other schools in the district have nieces/nephews in some of the other district schools even went to a few of them myself as a student - you can't find a more supportive community then you will find here. Staff & Prinicipal are the best. The smallest in the corporation but the closest to a private school atmosphere for a public school.

    This is my son's first year at Madison. He is learning so much and is loving his time there. They have really started his Education off on the right foot. The staff is great and they truelly care about each of the students.

    this school has always been at the top of the list. The new principle is bringing the spirits down.

    Madison Twp. School is the best. I was in the last graduating class of 1964! The basics were taught good discipline practices were met we were well prepared for college the teachers cared about you plenty of extra activities and parents were very involved and supportive.
