Madison central has felt like a home to me for the last 2 years. I’m incredibly sad that its my last year there. The teachers have poured so much encouragement and love into every since student and have made each of us feel so welcomed. Though the school work may be difficult at times, I don’t ever wake up dreading going to school because the staff and students make the day so much fun. Madison central also has incredible Friday night lights and it will take a special school to beat our peprallies. I love my Jaguars and would do anything to stay one for the rest of my life!

Overall, I have enjoyed my experience at Madison Central. The faculty is amazing, and I have been pushed academically. I feel as if I am prepared enough to be able to excel in college. I have also taken part in various clubs, through the school, that have gotten me connected to others as well as the community. I am a cheerleader at Madison Central, and that experience has been a one-in-a-lifetime experience for sure!
Madison Central is a high school that houses only 10th-12th-grade students, as our 9th-grade students have their own individual school before attending high school. I believe that my high school provided an incredible learning environment for not only me but all of the other students. At Madison Central, we have such a large variety of courses at various levels of rigor, from remedial learning to college credit classes. It allows its students to follow whatever course track they deem fit, without being too constricting. We also have several academies within our high school, such as the Engineering Academy or the Academy of Multimedia Communications, that allows the students enrolled in this academy to take all classes geared towards their strengths. Madison Central is one of the best, if not the best, academic high schools in the state of Mississippi, but is also one of the best athletic and extracurricular high schools in the southern region.
