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!

Schools in JMCSS do not have the books a good environment to learn in. Air conditioning and heating are very large problems. Students are often forced to learn in a room where they are not comfortable. Teachers vary, some enforce the rules, others don't as much. They often give an unreasonable amount of homework, forgetting students have other classes and other homework to do as-well. Most teachers know how to control and conduct a normal class and adapt to the students needs. Students are divided up very well as far as academic level goes.
The Madison county district has good schools, though some need to be repaired. My experience has been good, I've enjoyed the activities I could be apart of, but the time we wake up for school should be pushed back because its hard to learn when you're sleepy during first block.
