Madison Academic Magnet High School Reviews

My experience at Madison Academic High School has been great. Most of my educators have been extremely professional both inside and outside the classroom, prioritizing their students' educational needs. The curriculum is clearly college based and is a great preparation for life after high school. One thing I would like to see changed is the quality of the janitorial and food services in the school. Being an old building, Madison Academic does need some extra love and care when it comes to cleaning, especially when it concerns the health of the students. The same issue of health and care for the students and staff comes with the food services. The lunch staff is extremely hard working but the quality of food they receive to give the students is not the best. Overall, I would definitely recommend Madison Academic High School to anyone willing to challenge themselves academically throughout their four years of high school.

I am a Madison graduate of 2012-2016 and I can say with utmost honesty that I genuinely enjoyed my high school experience there.

I was fairly involved in the school. I had a nice group of friends, I would say that the school is fairly diverse, and I was a part of the Academic Decathlon team (which game me massive amounts of academic exposure).

I will say that though Madison boasts being a college prep school, they could improve on representing that self-proclaimed title. They could do better with actual college readiness tips/sessions (seniors visited once a week to discuss senior news/responsibilities. Those 15 minutes would've been better spent discussing scholarship opportunities and networking. Because I didn't have the slightest clue).
Regardless, I had a lot of god memories at the school.
I am currently a senior at Madison Academic Magnet High School. From my experience at this school, I can say that I have really enjoyed it. It is very easy to make new friends who have the same goals as you. The faculty and staff members are very nice and helpful. The only thing that I do not like about this school is some of the classrooms have a bad environment. Some rooms have holes in their walls.
