    Extracurriculars: There is a wide range of extracurricular activities to do at Madison from guitar club to soccer to PALS, so any student is sure to find a club that interests them. There is a strong commitment from students for their different clubs because everybody seems to be so passionate about what they do, every club goes above and beyond and represents the school respectively. The most popular clubs and activities would have to be football, PALS (peer assistance leadership and service) and the National Honor Society, there are many students in each organization and are all very involved with their school and community. The administration support for school functions is great, we always have administrators and teachers at the events to support the school. Madison offers several after-school activities that can help students grade averages or just clubs that they might be interested such as the Disney club. My school provides many activities that most students are involved in.

    Overall Experience: If I could start high school over again, I would still go to my school for many reasons. the biggest reason would be that there are so many students there and so much opportunity to make awesome new friends. My campus is unique because we have the Ag program, if I could start over again I would definitely be in Ag. Some of my favorite experiences at school would have to be the sporting events, there is a lot of school spirit and its a great way to bond with fellow classmates. Overall, I believe that my school is awesome, and while I may have some regrets like the average person, my school has provided me with many opportunities that I would not have been able to get anywhere else.

    Teachers: At Madison High School, teachers are very committed to make sure that their students are improving and succeeding. Having teachers who are willing to go above and beyond for their students is what has inspired me to want to become a teacher. My teachers are very consistent with grades and are very good on communication with their students. While their teaching styles are all different, they are all effective in keeping students engaged in the lessons.
