My experience with Madison High has overall very good. I have made many great relationships with my teachers, and other teachers that have not even taught me that care for me. Most teachers are very willing to help their students, and want what is best for them. I am beyond grateful for the memories the high school has gave me from friday night football games, to pep-rallies, to memories in class with my friends.

Madison High School was an interesting place to attain an education. Though there are some things they do well, such as having caring teachers and endless extracurricular activities, they need to gain more funding to send the overall education levels a little higher. Madison High School does well to be the only high school in an extremely rural area.
I enjoyed my experience at Madison High School because of the teachers. Almost every teacher I had truly cares about what we learn and what we do. The passion these teachers give out really wants to make you excel and do your best. You can tell they really care about the students, not only the students grades. Most of these teachers were students at Madison High in the past, which shows that they care a lot about the future of our school. Even I have considered coming back and being a teacher for Madison High.
