Madison County School District Reviews

Overall I have had a pretty good experience at Madison Central. I think we have a wide variety of clubs offered as well as clubs being created. I think the administration as a whole could open up to the idea of more political student body environment. I personally would love to see more student-driven political clubs like "Students Demand Action" and "Young Highschool Democrats for America", but since it is very conservative and right-leaning there is a split in what is allowed and what isn't. I do think that they are starting to loosen up and maybe in the next few years clubs like this will be added if people stand up!

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!
