I have been going to Madrid High School for about three years. I think that the best thing about it is that the teachers reach out and make an effort with the students, and the clubs and activities are engaging. However, there is a very sharp downside to this, namely in terms of diversity and school culture. For example, racial slurs are regularly thrown around--even at me--and it is typical for queer students to be openly bullied over their sexuality or gender identity. I and others formed a GSA, but when we tried to put up posters for National Coming Out Day with statistics and encouraging messages, administration tore them down without permission. They claimed it was making religious students uncomfortable, that parents didn't like them, and that they didn't want other schools to think they had any sort of political affiliation (even though they regularly promote religious activities). It is also common for students to make jokes about rape or to bully those with disabilities.

I loved my experience at Madrid High School. It felt like a very personal and closely-knit community where everyone cared about each other. The art, speech, and drama programs were all really fun. I feel like all of these things helped me to develop as a student and as a person. The food wasn't super amazing, but the rest of the things that I mentioned made up for it.
It's a pretty good school, but a pretty small school. If the teachers don't like you, it can affect your classroom experience in not only their classes, but other teachers within the same department. There are no AP course offerings, but we are able to take college classes from DMACC free of charge, as long as our GPA is high enough. Madrid places a lot of emphasis on sports rather than academic achievement, which is frustrating and unfair to the more academically inclined kids.
