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!

I grew up in the great city of Madison. Madison, Alabama has one of the greatest school systems in Alabama. Maybe even the country if you ask Forbes. Our very own Bob Jones High School was featured on Forbes.com for being a great high school in a great city in recent years. From elementary school to high school, I have always had an amazing experience with students and staff. Madison City Schools make learning enjoyable and makes children eager to learn more material. Teachers are always sure to make sure you understand the material. This encourages schools to reward children and sometimes we would preform small plays for music shows for our parents. Also, being based near Huntsville where the Redstone Arsenal is, we have a lot of army families move into town. The diversity is amazing. I attended the brand new James Clemens which opened going into my freshman year. My class of 2016 were the first class to complete the first 4 years and I’m so proud of my school and city.
Madison City Schools is overall a very, very good school system. In the state of Alabama, for public schools, they are highly recommended and as a student, I agree with their rating. The teachers definitely prep for college readiness, but they also want you to succeed in life as not just a member of the workforce, but as a person. Students learn and are taught kindness, responsibility, respect, and citizenship and urged to use these tools on an everyday basis. I am happy to have spent 12 years in the Madison City system, and go Jets!
