The school does a really good job funding some activities such as music, art, and sports. Many of the teachers take the time to help students and there are designated tutorial rooms for those who need it. However, there is a lot of work assigned, which is stressing a lot of students out. There are other inconveniences that can be fixed. Wifi is extremely slow and can shut off from time to time. The parking lots are also very small and hard to get out of after school.

I think overall, my past experience at Madison High School has been very enlightening and helped me grow not only as a student but as a friend, a colleague, and a pioneer for new ideas. MHS had a focused learning environment along with a strong in-class and outside the classroom dynamic between classmates and teachers alike.
As a senior of MHS I believe that this school is one of the best academically. The teachers are great, the faculty is awesome, and the coaches are good at what they do. There's certainly things to improve on such as food, bathrooms, and some sanitation issues. However overall Madison High school is a very good school.
