Hello fellow cheeseheads!

  1. Good morning, afternoon, and eveing! LOL One question to those of
    you whom chose to shed some light on my foggy brain. We are thinking of relocating to Madtown(Madison) next spring. I am an LPN. Planning on earning an RN after our move. DH is an RRT. We have three children, 5, 3, and 1.

    1. What is a desireable place to live in Madison(Besides MIddleton) I am only familiar with Sun Prarie seeing as how I dated a guy from the Sound (high school marching band) back in the early 1990's.




    2. Schools.... which school area is the best? I have no idea where to start, its so vast. The Madison school website blew my mind. There's like 5 different "areas" of schools. Jeepers.





    3. Any other insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time. All of you...

    I grew up in Sun Prairie, and had no problems in that area. I would love to move back but husbands family is in the area we live now. Sun Praire had really good schools, I really liked Royal Oaks Elementary school. The highschool was good also. The city is starting to meet with Madison, but it still is a good place to raise kids.

    If you want close distance to Madison, but a rural community, consider Cambridge or Lake Mills. Both smaller towns but right off the freeway and close to Madtown.

    I live north of Madison....near Portage. I'm a country girl at heart. It seems like there has been a big increase in crime in Madison so I would feel safer out of the city- especially with kids. p.s. Portage has a new hospital as well and it's right off the interstate. Good luck and welcome to the area!
