Neely’s Bend Middle School has been a part of the Madison community for over 60 years. Neely’s Bend joined the LEAD family in 2015 and continues to value the traditions of the community while also taking its students to the next level academically – preparing them with the skills they need to be ready for college and ready for life.

LEAD Neely’s Bend emphasizes positive, honest family engagement and all parents are provided weekly updates on their child’s progress and have the opportunity to attend regular meetings with the school administration.

We also partner with several community organizations to provide food programs, laundry assistance, job training classes, family workshops, financial workshops, and much more to our students and families in need.

Our LEAD Ethos is central to everything we do.

“We are LEADers because we are committed, courageous, disciplined, self-reliant and because we serve others.”

“I think it’s excellent that LEAD’s mission is to prepare students for not only college but also life. I choose LEAD because I like the teaching style and how they build the right mindset for the students. I feel the staff shows they have the best interests of not only the students but the whole family in mind. LEAD has shown that they value my children.”
