What I like most about Madison is that there are so many different kinds of people, there are many different clubs to join, and there are so many different classes that are interesting. Although it is big, it is easy to get around as there are clear directions everywhere as well as a road in between the main buildings and the gym to get down to Ag that also goes past all the other buildings. All of the teachers are very good and nice and friendly, but certain substitutes are not very nice and I wish they would be hired based off their personality towards the students as well their credentials.
Many extracurricular opportunities at James Madison are either sports like football, soccer, track, golf, tennis, and even chess, if thats a sport. There is also opportunities for students to get extra help in the morings or after school. Alot of the staff try to help kids get into different things like theater or music maybesome sports. Many students love when the teacher support them during their activities and many show up. We have alot of things for students to be doing after school. Many of the foot ball players go to school early to get in a practice before school.
