Which school is better? Which one gives more work? What are the graduation requirements? Do they both have study halls? Which one would you recommend?

Definitely Madison. Madison is better academically and has nicer/more accepting kids. Usj people think they're better than everyone else because they have money.

You might want to read the question again, Guest. USJ definitely gives more work; I would know because I go there and have friends at Madison who say they never have work outside of school. Madison only has 4 classes per semester, while USJ has 7, which includes a study hall. If I'm correct, I believe the graduation requirements include the normal class credits plus 50 hours of community service-hours both inside and outside of school. USJ people are not snobby at all. That's just a stereotype that people place on private school children.

So Madison does not have a study hall?

It's called mentoring which is like study hall I believe. Madison is a good school and yes they do have homework but I don't believe it's s bad as some say. Really depends on the teacher and how much they have planned to get in in 1 semester.

What are the requirements to be accepted at Madison?

The amount of "work" given has no bearing on how good the education is. No dealings with Madison but have dealt with USJ and they do seem a bit sbobbish and arrogant at times. Heck, don't we all do that at times though?

I thought grades and maybe even an essay were involved in the acceptance process. It's just random?

My kid isn't even in middle school yet... just planning for the future.

Yes they have to write an essay and they have to maintain a c average. They take the kids that have siblings first then it's a lottery.

So in other words, USJ students take 6 classes year round and have a more relaxed schedule (not having to get as much done in a short amount of time) while Madison students finish with 8 for the year and they get use to the fast pace of a class that will prepare them for college. Both are very academically challenging but one cost a ton of money to just attend the school, not to mention the appearance your kid will need to keep up if he or she wants to fit in.

I go to Madison and I think its a great school. Plus why pay alot of money for USJ when you can probably get the same type of education.

Madison has less kids with over-egotistical pride issues, but USJ has better looking women. Take your pick.
