Madison County School District Reviews

I go to Germantown High School. I have been to several different schools, but Germantown is by far the best when it comes to education. The teachers are great, and the school, overall, puts education first. We have this thing called "Man Break." It is a 50 minute break that we get to use to eat lunch and also to go talk to our teachers if we need help with something. We have laptops, which allows us to have access to online resources. Most of what we do in school is very hands-on. My overall education experience has been top-notch! I rated my experience a 4 out of 5, because the education is great; however, my personal/social experience at Germantown isn't so great. Like any high school, some of the students are mean an judgmental. There are different cliques that you must fit into in order to be a "somebody" rather than a "nobody." I've never fit into any of the cliques, which makes me a outsider when it comes to social events at my school.

Madison County is a great district that focuses on student's well-being and education. They are innovative in technology and curriculum and make their primary goal our success. My personal experience has been phenomenal with them in the years I have attended their schools. With the addition of excellent faculty, schools, and programs they provide the perfect formula for a great education!
After my child attended a small private school north of Madison, we enrolled him in Madison County Schools. It was the best thing we ever did! His ACT score went up, his confidence went up and now he is prepared for college. The only reason many boys transfer to small private schools is because to play sports. How will that help them in life? It is more important to get that ACT score up! We feel like our son will succeed in college because of his preparation at MC. It was hard but so is life. Do not bother with small private schools!
