I was scoping around looking for a good middle school program for my rising 6th grader and I came across a school that is opening up next year in Sumter. The name is Madison Preparatory School and it's a program that's apparently been in the works for a few years now. They're just for 5-8 grade and seem to be pretty elite. From what I've found out so far, the students get a ton of technology exposure that none of the other schools, public or private, have in Sumter. Plus, they are all about the learning. I feel like this place is one that my child would definitely succeed in. The discipline seems really solid. They're not playing any games with these kids.

I've managed to come across some kids in a couple of local high schools that have been part of the pilot program over the last few years and they tell me it's amazing and that they are so prepared for high school that they feel like they are just breezing through.

I want this for my son, but I know it's competitive.

Does anyone have an inside track on getting your kid in? Should I get him more involved in community service, school activities, or maybe a tutor to prep for the entrance exam?

Thanks for the help!
