Despite all the negativity I've heard people say about my school, I love that this school is a career and readiness school. I loved that I was able to put my foot in the door compared to other students in other high schools, they don't have that opportunity that early. I chose to do the Health Assisting vocation and the teachers are very supportive. They will push you until you can be the best. There is always something to do in that shop; from clinical, to volunteer, community services, and co-op. This school also has its academic courses and so many resources to take Dual Enrollment classes that I've participated in. I also participated in the school's music club, dance club...assisting in throwing a talent show, and other activities. I've benefited a lot from Madison Park Technical Vocational High school. There is nothing i would change at the moment. What an amazing community with many personalities.

I enjoyed my time at Madison Park Highschool. I got into the Nursing assistant program which sparked my interest in pursuing a career in the health field. During my freshman year, I rotated through all the programs to get an overview of what each one offers. eventually, I chose 3 programs and got accepted into my top choice which was the nursing assistant program. upon graduating high school, I was a Certified Nursing Assistant and I worked in nursing homes and rehabilitation centers as part of the co-op program. During my senior year, I worked at a nursing home during my vocational weeks. I think Madison Park is an amazing highschool that pepares students educationaly and vocationaly.
MP is a pretty good school in good standing. Has many resources and opportunities for students. College readiness and career development are two of the major goals for the school, which is highly effective once they graduate.
