Madison High School is one of 3 PPS high schools being modernized or rebuilt through the successful May 2017 Bond. It was master planned as part of the 2012 School Building Improvement Bond. The goal of planning and design is to develop comprehensive, equitable, integrated and visionary high school campus concepts with authentic school community engagement.

The master planning for the Madison Campus began in February 2016 and was completed in June 2016. A Design Advisory Group (DAG) will soon be formed as Madison moves into the next phase of planning and design. Construction will begin in the summer of 2019.
The goal of the Madison DAG is to develop comprehensive, equitable, integrated and visionary high school campus plans and schematic designs with authentic school community engagement. The DAG will consist of a group of parent, teacher, student, and community stakeholder representatives who will be involved in the development of the design of the modernized Madison High School.
Madison Master Planning Committee (MPC)
The Madison master planning committee (MPC) was a group of school and community stakeholder representatives who worked together to help provide feedback for the Madison master plans. MPC members synthesized community-wide input and shared the evolving details of the project to others in the community. While MPC members did not make decisions, their input was crucial in creating a design that the entire Madison community can be proud of. The committee began work in February of 2016 and completed their work in early 2017.
Public Design Workshops
During the master planning process one Public Design Workshop an open house and several community focused meetings took place providing the greater Madison community a voice in the design process.
Madison set to begin construction in 2019
The PPS School Board has officially approved the order of the middle school and high school modernization projects from the May 2017 Bond. The Office of School Modernization was already given the green light to start the design process for Kellogg Middle School and Madison High School by the Board shortly after the bond passed. Now the schedule for all four project schedules has been established. Read the full PULSE story on the construction schedule for the May 2017 Bond schools here.
What Is Modernization?
Madison's proposed modernization will completely reconfigure and update learning spaces with a focus on indoor environmental quality, sustainability and historic preservation. Full modernizations retain the historic character of the school while bringing those buildings up to code and concurrently creating a more modern learning environment.
This is considered the most cost-effective, sustainable way to improve Madison, due to age, condition and historic significance.
