    Overall Experience: High school is high school. Some times are good, others are bad. It all honestly depends on whether you look at it as the glass half empty, the glass half full, or the glass having water in it.

    Overall Experience: MCHS has a vast supply of motivated and brilliant teaching staff. The array of extra-curricular activities are sure to entice any student; however, there are many more sports/ag related activities than artistic or intellectually based clubs. MCHS has a fantastic level of school spirit that, put against any other school, would dominate. Our school also has a diverse population of AP instructors and students who are driven to succeed and support one-another. Our school is relatively lax as far as dress code is concerned, and students MCHS treated with the respect human beings deserve.

    MCHS's downfalls are nothing to lose sleep over; though it would be amazing to see more funding in the arts, we have still found ways to be resourceful and talented above all else. The lack of enthusiasm for the arts when compared to FFA and football stems from the rural setting of the Madison County story; however, this only adds to the charm of the characters.

    My personal experiences before the 11th grade were nothing to write home about simply because I had not yet fully appreciated what my school had to offer. In exchange for "fitting in", I participated in MCHS's most respected and rigorous sport, softball, before realizing I had one chance to truly be myself and have the time of my life. Beginning in the 11th grade, I dropped all of my sports (which to some would be like losing their religion) and focused on my true passion: the arts. Since then, my time spent in theater and AP art, as well as Book Club and Academic team have been priceless.

    Above all, there is no other high school that could've produced an experience quite like this one. Often times, I think back to 2010, when I moved to Madison County from Florida, foregoing the chance to go to high schools that overlooked beautiful bays and held advanced programs specifically for medical science. Looking back, I know for a fact I wouldn't have it any other way.
