The Madison County School System is a well rounded one. I feel like I received a good education. Although I do not feel like I was adequately prepared for the college world by my faculty in high school.
I wish the county schools offered classes that the city schools do. I would like to see a more diverse option for languages, advanced learning, ect. Government funding plays a big part in this. Every year I was in public school the amount of money my parent had to pay for me to attend increased.
Overall, I enjoyed my education in the Madison County School System.

I have taken the ACT test at Bob Jones high school in Madison AL and the school itself was very well kept and nice. I also go to play football there on the weekend with some friends and the field and facilities that I have access to are state of the art and very well maintained. Not only are the teachers great, they also prepare students for college with all of the career readiness classes offered at the school. The teachers are also very well spoken and genuine people. I've had the privilege of meeting one of my friend moms that work at the school and she is one of the sweetest and nicest women you will ever meet, but is also very passionate about her teaching. Bob Jones high school in my opinion is one of the best schools in Alabama that you could go to.
Madison County Schools are really diverse. You don’t just see one ethnicity, you see a mixture of kids. They treat every student and parent with the same respect as they would for anybody. I would like see more change in the discipline area. For example, more structure for the students that don’t have the same home training as the student next to them does.
