Madison High School Reviews

Through Madison High school I have been opened to so many opportunities. I have joined the Cross country, track team and JROTC program. All through which I have met plenty of friends and support systems. All my teachers have been very supportive. Teacher and counselors have all given me the choices of many scholarships and opportunities to benefit my future and college application. I have excelled in my classes all around because of the tutoring and other options. All the teachers make it very clear they have your best interest in mind and want you to succeed. They put up gates around the school, although annoying at times, it was for safety purposes to ensure that we can feel safe at school. They make sure to hype up all sports and extra curricular activities hard work and make sure we are aware where and when they may be performing to go for support. Overall James Madison was a welcome place when I arrived here my sophomore year and I am so proud to be a maverick.

I go to James Madison High School and it is the best school within the NEISD district. Madison keeps students safe with clear bags and a protective gate. Every faculty member takes our education, experiences, and safety as a top priority. Students have the opportunity to be involved with all the various activities offered on campus. These include band, which is what I am in, diverse clubs, and athletics. Although Madison demonstrates career driven paths such as AMP and AP courses, the campus could improve in offering more help on standardized testing. This is where Madison lacks compared to other schools in the district despite all of the numerous successes throughout the high school. I would not pick any other high school to go to.
At Madison high school there is a lot of variety of classes that you can pick for you endorsements. The classes at Madison for you endorsement allows you to pick clases that you enjoy and it allows you to pick classes that interest you. The Madison campus is a great campus with many safety precautions but, the Madison can improve on the quality of the of some of the buildings. Some of the days when I’m there the K building air conditioning dose not work and the main building some of the class rooms dose not have cell service. As a result when the teacher has a interactive teaching lesson with students using their phones. Some of the students can’t use their phones because they can’t connect to the internet. But overall the Madison is very good campus.
