When I began school in this district as a sixth grader, I was shocked with the size of our elementary school. Originally, I was so scared to be around all these new students and teachers, but when I got into middle school that changed. All of my teachers were very kind and willing to work with every student. The stressful transition from middle school to high school was also made easier with the help of my high school teachers. Although my subjects were difficult to begin with, my teachers have always been compassionate and aided in assistance. I also enjoy the school district’s culture. There are numerous different types of students and administrators in our schools - allowing for an experience that will aid us in our futures. Our school is on the newer side, compared to other schools in the district, and it is great to see the respect that students have for the school’s cleanliness and well-keeping. I am so thankful that I moved into this school system.

I have been at Madison city schools since I was a kindergartner and now I am a senior at James Clemens. Madison City school is absolutely amazing because they offer their students various programs to get them ready for the real world. For example they offer different career guiding paths for high schoolers so by the time they reach senior year they are offered a internship with the school to travel to local companies, hospitals, or research institutions to help them conclude what they actually want to do. They also offer rigorous courses in order to prepare them for college level courses starting from 7th grade. All the teachers are very invested into each and every student making sure they understand what they have been taught to having that one on one relationship with them.
Madison City Schools prioritizes safety, education, and the future of each of their students. Having attended elementary, middle, and high school in this district, I can confidently say that I have received a superb education and have beeen treated with extreme respect. The counselors are more than helpful when it comes to course work, registration, and college scholarships. I have no complaints about any of the staff members!
