  • THE SCHOOL IS HORRIBLE. I AM A STUDENT THERE AND I GO THERE. I DONT LEARN ANYTHING. 2 TEACHERS DID SOMETHING BAD IN THE CLASSROOM AND WE WERE ON TV. THIS IS THE WORST SCHOOL EVER. WHEN U DO YOUR HOMEWORK U FEEL LIKE THIS ISN'T WHAT I LEARNED. AND TUTORING IS NOT WHAT U EXPECT.IF YOU WANT TO SEND YOUR CHILD TO A GOOD SCHOOL I SUGGEST MIDWOOD. IT IS THE #1 SCHOOL IN BROOKLYN.

  • When my colleagues and I were in school from 1944 to 1947, Madison was an inspiration that sent many of us to Ivy League schools and other pursuits which turned out rewarding. Many of the teachers were outstanding and dedicated. School was an enjoyable time.
