Madison County School District Reviews

I have been a student at Liberty Technical Magnet high school for all four years of my high school career and these years for sure I have had the best experiences in my life. The teachers and faculty are friendly and very helpful as well as being amazing teachers, and the students feel like family even though the school is so large. I love the sense of community withing the school systems as well. I believe that the Madison County School District is definitely doing something right!

The county provides school, buses, etc. Some schools however don't provide buses for their schools such. These happen to be the ones that prepare you most for college as well so many kids are unable to have these opportunity. I hope that the school systems will one day teach us practical skills and knowledge . Academic is okay but it isn't always applied. We should know about how to obtain homes, cars, file taxes, voting and how it works, proper sex education that involves light children as well. There should also be more clubs perhaps ones run by students to help celebrate our diversity and teach us leadership as that seems to be things colleges look for as well.
I was part of Madison Academic High School, and my experience there was just wonderful. While not without its flaws (certain teachers went on political tangents occasionally), it was a place where we were encouraged to be good people, and the staff were strict, but completely fair and unbiased. It also produced a culture of tolerance, where it didn't matter if you were Muslim or Catholic; white, black, Latino, or Asian; how much money you made; or even if you were gay or straight or cis or trans. All were welcomed and tolerated at our high school.
