The overall experience of this school is ok. There are few teacher that truly help prepare you for college. The only challenge the school really provides is ap classes. The school basically does whatever to make sure every kid passes, but not preparing them for college in the process.

Madison County is my favorite school because it is full of respectful staff, very genuine and funny staff, and just overall friendly staff that will always give second chances so that you have the opportunity to graduate. There are plenty of athletic programs to get involved in, and it is not a very big school so there in no need to worry about getting lost trying to find I class room, or no need to scurry down the hallway due to the fact that the classes are close.
Small school atmosphere allows for closer friendships and less teacher to student ratios. The drawback is that it only allows a limited number and type of classes that can be offered. Other schools in the system are larger so they are able to provide a broader curriculum. The technical school program is good to help fill in the gaps and provide for a future for those that prefer a trade for their career versus a college degree.
