Coming from another, less than superlative, school two years prior, I never expected to graduate from a school as exceptional as the one I attend now. Madison Preparatory Academy is a small charter school that welcomed me into their family my junior year. Ever since then I have been subjected to learn under intelligent and attentive teachers, who work under phenomenal administration. Our principal and the administrators work hard to make Madison Prep function like a well oiled-machine. With their work the parents are always involved, the school always has fun clubs and activities to join, and the students prosper in all areas of academics. Of all the positives that the school contains, the one thing I'd ask them to change is their opposition to a more relaxed dress code. Other than that this school has been more than ideal in helping me to eventually graduate out of high school as a fully functioning member of society.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to Madison Preparatory Academy when a bigger school in my city is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure the bigger schools in my area are great but I absolutely love going to Madison Preparatory Academy. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Baton Rouge." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know all my teachers very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
My experience was pretty good. It is a small school so it's easy to get to know people. People are like a family there. The sports program was excellent. The teachers would give help if needed and the principal would know a lot the parents. One thing I would change at the school is the space. There are classes being held in trailers and hopefully with the new building being built, there will be additional classrooms and for the teacher in the classroom to control the temperature of the classroom itself.
