I LOVE MADDEN!!! He's one of the best teachers I've ever had!! He's super funny and really helpful. Before him I never understood anything in algebra but now he makes everything so much clearer. Also he cares about his students. I'm a runner and he'd ask about my races, this kid is in the play and he'd ask about that. He cares about his students as people and individuals not just as algebra student. Madden is a great guy!! Also check out his bakery...

Mr. Madden is probably going to be one of my favorite teachers of all time. Even though the course is hard, he will make it seem easy. The only thing is that his tests are hard, so make sure you STUDY (especially if your in his honor classes). I went to extra help whenever I could, and he helped me so much. He isn't just one of those teachers who has no personality, he builds a personal relationship with you, which helps a lot.

Madden is amazing- he's a great teacher, and a chill guy. He even came to track meets and baseball games and cheers on his students if they're running or playing. Always helpful and has a smile

Mr. Madden is one of the best teachers that I have ever had. Even though his tests were not the easiest, he would always try to make all of his students succeed. His extra help sessions, even not the planned ones, were always extremely helpful. What also made him a very good teacher is that he actually got to know you and that goes both ways.

This guy makes the hardest math course you'll ever take in high school into something more tolerable for most students. His demeanor and sense of humor is honestly my favorite thing about this guy. Sure his tests and quizzes are hard, but if you do your homework efficiently and study occasionally, his class isn't that bad. In general, Madden the best teacher I have ever had so far and the way he teaches makes it so much easier for me to understand.

Is a very nice and cool guy- and a great teacher if you're good in math (referring to his Honors classes). However, if not- he can be bad at explaining/teaching topics in class- so if you do poorly you have to take advantage of his extra help. If you don't you will fall behind. HIs extra help sessions are very personalized and helpful- even if you just want some extra practice

One of my favorite teachers, he is truly amazing, he is so passionate about math, i used to hate math, but now it is one of my favorite subjects because of him, he cares so much about students, last year this guy bullied me and put his hands on me, and mr madden made sure i was okay, and he made sure the kid got in trouble, he is very trust worthy, theres no way i can describe how amazing he is in less than 500 characters

Mr. Madden eats shorts. Just kidding. He's an awesome teacher and a great guy. I guess... Lol jk again. Fo' real doe, he explains things very well and has a great grip on math and how to teach it. DONT LISTEN TO THE OTHER KIDS WHO ARE SAYING THAT HE'S BAD AT EXPLAINING THINGS. THEY'RE JUST STUPID AF. You can commonly see Dave running around and baking pies. Haha inside jokes. I like his go-t. But seriously, great teacher and he really does eat shorts.

Mr. Madden is the best math teacher I've ever had. I was failing algebra my first semester and actually told me to join his AIS class because he actually wants student to succeed. He kept me on my toes and capivated. I was actually exciyed everyday for math. Without him I wouldve had summer school. Mr. Madden is one of the few teachers that truly loves what he does.

All you need to know is he is a great guy. All the bad stuff people say is not true. They probably didn't get his humor and hated math. He will go over stuff with you again & again, just ask for help. His tests are hard, so study. Do the homework, it actually helps. With him, there's a certain time for everything, so don't be disruptive. Overall, he's an amazing person and teacher. I've known him for 3 years and it's been amazing. He's understanding, passionate & really connects with us students

He was a good teacher, yet I feel like he hates me cause I talked so much... Anyways, he was real good, and a teacher that would be fun in class, enthusiastic, and real cool in class, always having an answer... But as many people said, be real careful on his tests, they might effect alot. Make sure you understand every thing in class.

Mr.Madden is one of the best and most enthusiastic teachers I have ever had. He is very enthusiastic, and knows what he is talking about. He answers any questions you have immediately and thoroughly. Be careful of the speed. In his honors classes, he goes fast. Keep your binder ready because there are quite a few notes that you NEED. Overall, I really loved him and his class. You are lucky if you have him, but be careful because while his class is great his tests are hard!

He's a nice guy. Explains things a little twisted, so its hard to understand him sometimes. I liked him though, me and him were buddies. I did good in the beginning of the year, but kinda declined from there. He can be tough.

Very tough, he's pretty cool but since i am the biggest mets fan in the world i think it caused me to not do good cause instead of helping me he would make fun of the mets. I am also an honors student so i might get kicked out because of him. Other than that long response i think i learned a lot despite all above written i learned a lot but couldnt get help.
