Our school's extracurricular activities are highly varied and enjoyable. Though we do offer run-of-the-mill athletics found at nearly every high school, the truly unique clubs are often non-athletic. Our academic and art oriented student activities are not only high engaging, but successful and full of incredible students. For example, our Academic Team not only appeared on WSB-TV's competitive game show, but was undefeated and even made it to the GHSA state tournament. Moreover, the Drama Club, who performed "Hairspray" as their 2016 spring musical, sold out tickets all four nights of showing and even over filled the capacity of the theater. These activities and others are lead by committed and hard working teachers and students who devote their entire heart to their endeavors despite being high achieving, busy individuals already. Because these non-athletic clubs are not financially supported by administrators, their success can be fully credited to the incredible students and teachers behind them.

The quality of teachers at Madison County varies drastically. Our most gifted and beloved teachers tend to be in the English department. These teachers not only have phenomenal pass rates on state-wide tests and AP exams, but are hardworking, knowledgeable, and genuinely care for their students. The passion that drives the English department is truly unique and unparalleled in any other school system. Our Social Studies teachers are also driven individuals with great love for the subjects they teach; this dedication is evident in that my Economics teacher hosts weekend study sessions for his students, even going as far as providing food and extra credit to participating individuals. Our teachers adapt their teaching styles to the individual needs of the student and do not give up until each student can attain the level of success they desire. Not only are our teachers passionate about their work, but they are heavily involved in student life, sports, and activities. The motivation and love of learning these incredible people instill upon our student community is incredible, and I have been truly privileged to complete four years of high school under their guidance.

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.
