Madison County High School Reviews
My experiences at Madison County High School were generally positive, although it failed to adequately prepare me to enter into college. Not that the academics were below-average by any means, I've performed exceptionally well as a student, and I managed to adapt to collegiate-style courses with relative ease. The problem lies in the administrative and advisory sector. As a student, I went years without knowing about the importance of extracurricular activities, grades, and general involvement in regard to constructing a competitive college application, and lacking that critical information made applying and then transitioning into college a deeply unpleasant experience to me. Overall, the academic sector is satisfactory, but the long-term advising is disappointingly underdeveloped.
Overall, MCHS offers a wide range of classes of very diverse subjects (from agriculture and construction to technology, art, and music), taught by some extraordinarily wonderful, engaging, and experienced teachers. Teachers are even encouraged to stand out and step up their teaching game through the opportunity to be recognized on the "Teacher of the Year" plaque at the entryway of the main building (this plaque is generally pretty accurate). Students are encouraged to be kind and dedicated by the school faculty and administration through several rewards for high grades, perfect attendance, etc. The best meal is the Boom Boom Chicken Wrap, which combines sour-dough bread with a slice of cheddar cheese, a few strips of chicken, and slices of bacon, all rolled up into one delicious sandwich and topped with Boom Boom sauce. The only thing that I would do is get rid of the hand blow dryers in the bathroom and replace them with paper towel dispensers because the blow dryers barely work.
I came from Clarke County. I think Madison County is not only more flexible with the students’ schedules, but also more focused on the students’ futures. At my old school, we had personal laptops. Although at MCHS we don’t get this privilege because of the school’s income, I believe the staff go that extra mile to make sure every student is safe and well-maintained. Some students may be mean to others, but kids are always cruel. Minorities aren’t really heard of in Madison County, and being a latina, I have experienced some forms of “bullying.” But the teachers will do their best to make sure everyone is treated right and fair. I believe this school is the right place for me.
