The building itself is a dilapidated ruin. No one in the higher administration (on the board especially) seems to actually care about the success of students. We had three different superintendents in two years. The building isn't air conditioned, but is heavily insulated. In the August-September heat, we sit in un-air conditioned classrooms where it's upwards of a hundred degrees. You get sick because of switching from hot hallways to cold classrooms because some teachers have personal air conditioning units. At their own cost. If it wasn't for the teachers, Madison would have absolutely no redeeming qualities. But they have amazing teachers. There are also lots of extracurricular activities and it's easy to get approval for new ones. The music program is also very good.
Madison High School is a perfectly acceptable school that excels in areas like math and history due to the teachers and not the curriculum. While there are some teachers who go above and beyond to help students prepare for college and the ACT as well as developing good study skills, there are plenty who do not, which makes the high school experience inconsistent and frustrating. The facilities are nice for a school building that is as old as it is. Everything is well kept today and the janitors do a great job of keeping the school clean. Our school resource officer is very friendly and makes the place feel safer. The music and arts programs that the school offers are quite good and all the students enjoy having those classes. Overall the school has some outstanding or exemplary aspects but also some parts that inherently drag it down.
