Madison County Public Schools Reviews

I attended Madison county public schools from my k-12 experience. Overall it was a good experience I wanna enjoyed my elementary and high school times the most due to amazing teachers. My middle school years the teachers attitudes and the harsh enforcement of minor school rules such as, forgetting a belt for dress code were the major issues I had with not really enjoying middle school. I think that some of the educators need to be taught how to positively handle students because every grade level of student is going through something developmentally and not all actions require a harsh form of punishment or words.

There are several gems within the Madison County school system. The teachers are generally very caring towards their students and dedicated to their work. However, what students will get out of their experience comes completely from their effort; there are a variety of paths they can take to be successful, but it is their choice if they are unsuccessful there and a lot of students choose that path. At the high school level there needs to be more facilities available because it is very overcrowded.
Madison county schools provide many classes with many different levels including general, pre-ap, and ap classes. I have enjoyed my time at Madison county schools and think that the teachers put forth a great effort in their classes and students’ education. One thing that I think could be improved on is school food.
