    Extracurriculars: The extracurricular activities are close knit little communities, but one individual is usually involved in practically all of them. The same ten people can be involved in many different activities. It always seems to be the Honor Graduates who participate, and the rest of the class just goes to work somewhere else. The activities themselves are very engaging and worthwhile.

    Overall Experience: I am involved is all of the arts programs offered by my school. The teachers are good at taking care of what needs to be done for performances while still allowing for a good balance in creativity. Students express themselves freely, and I personally have become a more optimistic, outgoing person because of my school's arts programs. I would do it again as long as I could do it with the same people. My peers are like my family, and my teachers are wonderful mentors.

    Teachers: I love Madison County High School. Like all schools, there are some teachers that just do what they have to but there are some that go out of their way to help their students. There are also a lot of after school activities and clubs that are supported by the staff.

    Student Culture & Diversity: Living in the rural south, there is very little racial, ethnic, or religious diversity, and the attitudes of these majority student's are not always positive in regards to minority students. This issue is typically only prevalent in the students from the lower achieving side of our spectrum, as the high achieving section of our school is highly accepting, and many of them speak out on current hot-button political issues. The diversity in gender expression is somewhat low; however, there are many different sexual orientations represented in my circle of friends alone, and the school as a whole has only grown more accepting toward these people since I was a freshman. Typically, most students are involved in at least one extra-curricular activity.
