    Overall Experience: Madison Senior High School is fine. The building is very nice, and most of the teachers genuinely care. It's not an awful place. There is a lot more attention given to athletes than any other students, and the only way you can join a team is if you have the right connections.

    Overall Experience: If you have friends you will be okay. However, it shouldn't be that way. We should all be friends. Classes are easier and more fun that way.

    Overall Experience: I came from a very small school to Madison and at that small school all the administration and teachers cared about was the sports. In a classroom it would be read this chapter and answer questions. But in Madison all of the classes I took not once was i told to read and answer questions unless it was for a test. The teachers got involved and helped actually teach you! I learned more in Madison in two years then i did for five years at my other school.

    Another great part about this school is all it offers. I've played violin since I was seven and I had never been able to play in an Orchestra because i was never given an oppritunity until Madison.

    Administration & Policies: Our faculty members were very accommodating, anyone was willing to help if you needed it. The principal and vice principal were very involved in student life and tried to get to know all the students personally.
