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.
Review Madison County School District
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!
I attended schools in the madison county school district since first grade up until i graduated in 2016. they are constantly growing, adding new schools and new teachers. its a very family oriented place that you always feel safe in. the faculty make sure we are held to a high standard in our academics and make sure we achieve that standard, but not while lacking in fun! the sports are very competitive and coaches push students to work hard on the field or court and even harder in the classroom. all campuses are nice and kept clean. the staff always goes above and beyond when a student needs help, even if it doesn't pertain to school at all. the sheriffs deputies patrolling the hallways and parking lots allow for a safe environment for everyone.
