Madison County School District Reviews

The Madison County School District has the potential to be great. One of the positive programs is the career/job readiness program which was fully implemented last year. High school seniors get to get real work experience combined with classroom learning.
Another positive aspect of our schools is a strong Student Services Department. There are lots of situations which must be addressed and parents sometimes need a sounding board.
The Early Foundations department which maintains a large number of preschool classrooms is also a great asset that has a positive impact on the future academic success of students.
In addition to that, the Community Engagement program and homeless liason work tirelessly to meet the needs of the students.
Although the rating is not as high as I feel it will be in the future, the JMCSS is made up of hardworking Principals and administrative staff who strive everyday to help children be successful.

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.
