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!

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!
Between my three children we have attended Madison Elementary, Mill Creek, Columbia Elementary, Discovery Middle and Bob Jones High. None are without their challenges, however, it’s my opinion that the difference with this district from all others we’ve experienced throughout the schools we’ve attended across the US (military family) is the unparalleled support I see everyday that comes from the top down. These people truly care and are given so many incentives to teach the way they do best. I hope that even though over crowding is our latest challenge , that this bright group of people can creatively solve it for the children’s sake.
