The people there are nice and are surprisingly more talented than a lot of people know. The only problem I have with this area is that there are not enough opportunities for creative minds to flourish here, the creative arts (other than music) is pretty much impossible to pursue here and the education. The only reason why this suffocatingly uneventful and small town of Richmond was good to me was because the people there were of great character, otherwise the school system pretty much is going to force you into going onto the average at best sports teams we have, into some kind of school/college band, becoming a manager at a fast food place, or some sort of STEM-H field.

I love the school spirit, but the kids are rowdy. Fights among students are frequent. Teachers give out busy work and rush through lessons. The school buildings are very dirty and sometimes you can find dead bugs along the halls. The food is free, which is amazing. However, it looks like vomit and tastes repulsive. The teachers aren't that strict which is nice. There's not really any diversity more African-American students attend Madison Central and more white kids attend Madison Southern. Parents aren't involved much at all which I feel should change.
I have grown up in the Madison County School System, and I cannot imagine a district who is more passionate about their students. I have found the classes I have taken throughout my schooling to be challenging enough to foster further curiosity, and the resources available to me plentiful in times of need.
