My experience at Madison Academic has been wonderful, for the most part. The education that was provided to me was absolutely top-notch. While I was going through school, I hated every minute of it, as any high-schooler might, but the end result was wonderful. My school's intense curriculum has turned what was once a shy, unknowing girl into a well-rounded young adult. I leave Madison feeling prepared to take on my next level of education, college. The teachers and education at Madison have been a blessing on my life, the school however, has not been. Madison was built in the nineteen-twenties and it definitely shows. At the beginning of every school year, students are sent home with asbestos warnings for the parents to read. We have had hallways closed time after time due to rain water pouring in. Teachers and students alike have been hard at work, only to be interrupted by rotted ceiling pieces falling directly onto their heads. I love my school, just not the school itself.

Going to Madison Academic for 4 years straight has both its up and its down, to say the least. The school is advised to be the most challenging in the area that I grew up in, however I personally do not believe "challenging" and "absolutely insane" are synonymous. Little did I know as a freshman the work load that was ahead of me. On top of that, due to the competitive nature, it was difficult to find friends and figure out who I am. It wasn't until I was a senior I was able to find people who were accepting of who I was and I trusted. Academically, it wasn't too terrible. The teachers were generally well educators, however lacked in sympathy towards students and disregarded the notion that students, outside of school, actually had lives. So as I had to balance keeping a job, a social life, and any extracurricular activities, it was very exhausting to live to 5+ hours of homework daily. I, however, persevered--believing that this hard work would pay off in college.
Really prepares you for college! The teachers are all really kind and teach your to apply yourself in every aspect. Really pushes one to work hard. The fine art departments are excellent as well as all the various clubs you can join. Definitely recommend the school!
