What I like about Madison is the diversity of it and that everyone is equal there. Some teachers are absolutely great and very very helpful and inspiring and other teachers just done care for the students as much as the others. It would be great if the school got better food like we were promised. I wish we would also get enough support from the school for our soccer team, which isn’t supported at all with funds and such. But I mean overall the experience for me is good and I’m happy to be going for one more year and that hopefully I’ll be able to graduate top 10 percent from Madison.

Throughout my high school year, I have met an abundance of people that were extremely kind and respectful. However, most of the school's students can get disrespectful, rude, and full of drama. I would change the amount of fights that happen through my four years of high school. I would also change the benefits that we get for being well behaved students because the ones that were misbehaving got the most attention compared to those that did well. We never got rewarded for being studious.
Madison Highschool is an amazing school. People overthere are very friendly. I came there in the middle of the school year and I found no problem adjusting to the environment. The only thing we need is encouragement and motivation. I am a very motivated and determined girl but, some when I look at my classmate and there are just so lazy it frustrates me because I know the can do better.
