Madison City Schools creates a student-first culture. All teachers, administrators, and school district personnel focus on dynamic teaching techniques, invest in student advocates at all grade levels, and consistently train themselves on trending technology skills as well as innovative education practices. This intentional focus keeps students engaged. Which, in turn, inspires teachers' creativity. Everyone in the district benefits from a forward-thinking, growth standard: school doesn't get stagnant, teaching doesn't get tedious. Our graduates are well-prepared to compete with other high achievers across the country for recognition as top merit winners, top scholarship earners, and high-scoring standardized test takers. Strong, well-rounded graduates also move into the skilled workforce. Many earn workforce certifications during high school that boost entry-level wages. All this success comes with the tax burden of roughly fifty percent of larger counties in Alabama

The teachers and opportunities are amazing! I have gone to Mill Creek Elementary school, Liberty Middle school, and James Clemens high school. All of the schools in this school system are top in the state and have amazing AP, fine arts, and internship programs.
I believe that the Madison city school system is overall an adequate school system to be receiving an education; however, it is not tremendously better than other schools. There are inspiring teachers and there are lackluster ones. Some employees are incredible while others seem to be everything but passionate about there career. Therefore, I contend that the madison school system should be proud of their accomplishments, but also take into consideration some of the community’s criticism.
