Great time! Been about 10 years, since I personally attended. But I have seen family of friends with kids that have graduated even this past year absolutely love it

As long as you want to learn and are willing to improve, the teachers and staff will love to assist you. The campus is easy to navigate around. The security is up to par. There is a variety of extra curriculum to choose from for both athletic students and academic students. They also have a collegiate academy with two different college pathways to choose from. The lunch staff are my favorite people in the whole school. I have one more year left, but I am going to miss it once i'm gone.
James Madison has kept me as an in line and hard working student to reach my goals, with all the tools you need for success, they make college an in reach goal of anyone!
Being in cheerleading for 2 years of my high school experience teaching me discipline and showing me how to push myself to be academically ahead and put school before sports!
