While our highly qualified teachers focus on specific educational needs, getting to know the whole child is a responsibility every employee takes seriously. It is a privilege to serve our families, and we welcome the opportunity to become partners in the education of your child!

Partners with our Parents

“The small class sizes give teachers the opportunity to give adequate attention to each student and tailor to their individual needs...along with the small population, I appreciate the fact that as my children enter the school, each is greeted with a welcoming good morning and their name.”
- Joy Zollars, Madison Mom

“Through the caring staff, all the way to administration, they have helped me gain control of my children’s academic success...I can’t say enough about the teachers. They are truly angels in disguise! If you have an issue that needs to be addressed it is handled promptly with concern for both parties. Bullying is not tolerated at our school…Choose Madison Community, you will not be disappointed.”
- Dawn Dial, Madison Parent
