Madison Central High School is one of the most most magnificent schools that a high school student, such as myself, should attend. Not only is Madison Central full of talented and gifted students but it has a numerous amount of caring teachers and faculty members who are willing to wake up hours before punching the clock at work or maybe even staying after school to help their students and sometimes students of other teachers. In my deepest and honest opinion, Madison Central should be ranked as the number one school in the great state of Mississippi. While attending Madison Central, my grades have been tremendously high and my ACT score is very well! Without Madison Central, who will we be? Or better yet , who will we become? “GO JAGS!”

Great school! There is always something exciting going on from athletics to community service. Rated a 'A' school in an 'A' school district. Great learning environment with excellent teachers, counselors, and administrators.
My experience at Madison Central was awesome. The Teachers was helpful and understanding and didn't mind helping us out in other areas as needed. Eventhough, the school held 1500 plus student, we were family. The counselor was there when we needed them as well as the Principals and Assistant Principals. And of course we had the best sports program. Out school was the best in Basketball,football, track, Tennis, baseball and volleyball. We accumulated so many awards and trophies throughout the years. Our slogan is " Rumble in the Jungle." We are The Mighty Mighty Jaguars simply put. We are the best.
