West Madison is an awesome school with an amazing set of teachers, support staff members, and administrators! I hope as West Madison transitions to the new MidTown building they will keep their close family feel despite its growing size.

I love West Madison and their principal. She and all the teachers are amazing. I really hope they do not close the school.

The principal has her own agenda, the standard spin is: admit to nothing; do not acknowledge anything that is remotely negative. Leadership is the keeper of the truth and everyone else's truth is just a "perception."
