Fulton County is pleased to announce that John Madden, current assistant principal at Banneker High School, has been approved by the Board to serve as the principal for McNair Middle School, beginning July 1, 2016.  Mr. Madden's Bio is attached for your information, and he will be reaching out soon to begin setting up meet and greet opportunities.  I hope you will join me in welcoming him to the McNair family.

​Mr. John T. Madden, Jr. is a native of Atlanta, GA with strong ties to the Decatur area. Mr. Madden's educational journey began at Southwest Dekalb High School where he excelled academically and athletically. His success at Southwest afforded him the opportunity to receive a full basketball scholarship to Georgia College and State University. It was at Georgia College and State University where Mr. Madden's imprint on others and history began. During his tenure, Mr. Madden set numerous records, which remain unbroken, while still balancing a rigorous academic schedule. It was Mr. Madden's basketball coach who initially took notice to his innate ability to persuade and motivate others by leading by example. This skill has been the foundation of his success. Mr. Madden went on to earn a Bachelor of Science in Middle Grades (Georgia College and State University), Master of Education (Albany State University), and Educational Specialist (Georgia College and State University).

Mr. Madden has 19 years of experience as a teacher, coach, and assistant principal with 8 years being in Fulton County. He has proven to be an innovative, data driven, and creative leader who accepts challenges with ease and has a determination to ensure that all students are successful. Mr. Madden has a unique combination of administrative experience that encompasses elementary, middle, and high school. With this experience, Mr. Madden understands what it means to educate the "whole child".

Mr. Madden has a record of demonstrated success in implementing and monitoring teaching and learning that is rigorous and has yielded notable results. He is an advocate for building a school culture that fosters shared decision making and leadership within professional learning communities. Mr. Madden has a passion for serving his community through active involvement. He willingly prioritizes the needs of learners, teachers, and the school community.

Lastly, Mr. Madden is happily married to Monica, and they have two sons, Garrison (12) and Lance (7). Mr. Madden is pleased to serve as the South Learning Community Achievement Zone's Principal at Ronald McNair Middle School.
