Bright Minds for a Bright Future

“Learned institutions ought to be favorite objects with every free people. They throw that light over the public mind which is the best security against crafty and dangerous encroachments on the public liberty.” -James Madison, letter to W. T. Barry, August 4, 1822

Madison Elementary School serves approximately 480 students in grades preschool through 3rd. We provide special education services for approximately 75 students in all levels of special education. School age special education students are integrated into their regular education classrooms throughout their day. Our building sits in the southeast corner of the community and is less than 10 years old. We are a Character Counts! school and strive to assist students in developing their minds and their character.
