  • I am a 2003 graduate of Madison high school. I am shocked by the other review. Since it is 3 yrs old I hope there have been improvements. Had that parent been a little more involved then maybe there wouldn't have been a problem. Be involved from the start, not just when problems arise. As a student in a small district you have to make the best out of the education that you recieve. Make opportunities where there don't seem to be any. I am disappointed in that parent for downing the district because that also makes the community look bad as a whole. I must say that while I attended Madison Senior High I had some of the best teachers. They were tough, always willing to help, and encouraged me to strive to be the best.

  • Madison Middle and High Schools are at their lowest. I'm a parent of a High School student and the teachers and the new principal has told my son that he wont amount to anything. Now, to me this very ,very,very unprofessional of them all.I'm surprise there isn't a higher dropout rate or even suicide,because if I'm telling my teenager that he can be whatever he wants to be if he is determined. I've spoken with some of the teachers and they blow me off sometimes and because they have an incident verbal incident with my son, they then get together and talk about my child and he has heard them. When you have student that you give positive encouragement everyday about school their social outings etc; you do not want that destroyed by some arrogant staff. None of the students are angels but, some are targeted for failure and the staff sees to them not getting what they need from them as TEACHERS. I'm very anger that a school that once excelled in sports and academics is now a place where children come to get ridiculed, scorned, and mistreated if your pin pointed by the staff or some of the staff. the staff can't speak out to a parent when another teacher or the principal him or herself has been just as rude. What I'm concerned about when a teacher or principal can look a parent in the face and tell them lie after lie. Madison High School has become just a place where children come to get belittled and picked on by the STAFF!This a very serious problem that isn't going to go away at the board level but there is always something to be done. Like it are not these children are our future white,black,male,or female.Emotionally, verbally,and mentally Madison High School are destroying the children's self-esteem.
