Madison Elementary School History:
Madison Elementary opened its doors in 1964, under the leadership of principal Dr. William Stone. Following the tenure of Principal Stone, Mr. Gene Sikorski began his tenure as Madison's principal, serving 23 years. During that time, Madison was renovated and expanded, providing additional classrooms, two large gymnasiums, an updated library-learning center, an art room, a music room, conference rooms, and other support areas. It now encompasses 7 acres with the adjacent park on its western edge. Upon Principal Sikorski's retirement in 2009, Madison welcomed its third principal, Mr. Tim Callahan.
The Madison school community includes approximately 475 students for the 2017-18 school year and is one of thirteen elementary schools in Wheaton/Warrenville Community Unit School District 200. There are four middle schools for children in six through eighth grade and two high schools. The total student enrollment of the district is around 13,000 students. Students living in the Madison attendance area will attend Edison Middle School and Wheaton-Warrenville South High School.
