I have been at Madison High School since I was a freshman. I love this school with all my heart. I've wanted to attend this school since I was young. I always thought it was beautiful. I was not disappointed. This school has shaped me as the person I've become today. The teachers, the academics, and the clubs have shaped me into becoming the strong young woman I am today. I was accepting whenever I would try new things. The students and staff would go above and beyond to make you feel right at home. There is a large amount of diversity, and I'd say that they do their best to recognize everyone in every organization. We are proud of our school here and we love supporting everyone's interests. Here at Madison, I guarantee you will find a place you belong if you are open to trying new things. We welcome everyone! If you're looking for a supportive, loving, and spirited school. That can prepare you for the outside world. This is the one for you!
Review Madison High School
Just like every high school Madison has it's strengths and weaknesses. One of it's biggest strengths lies in the immense opportunities the students have to get involved and find something they really have an interest in. Madison is a huge campus and has at least 5,000 students (grades 9-12). So there are a multitude of things to keep the students engaged, for example our Agriscience magnet program, or AG, as we call it. Going to the negative side, due to the size of Madison it is easy for the administration team to not give the full attention needed for each student.
Madison has plenty of extracurricular activities and groups available. The Fine Arts department includes theatre, orchestra, choir, band, and art, which all have after-school clubs and year-round activities and performances. Within the athletic departments there are always after-school practices with many sports regardless of the season. Basketball, football, track, soccer, baseball and more keep sports-loving students busy. Also, the language department has clubs for most of its languages, like Spanish, German and French. Aside from these three main areas, other clubs, like PALS, Unity Club, Earth Club, Debate, Video Game club, and even Disney club. There's bound to be something for everyone at Madison!
