I am appalled to hear that Madison isn't a good school says who...the school is what you make it out to be so if your highly concerned about becoming a productive of your environment then that is your choice but from my experience you're suppose to go to school to get an education & not the lesser there of...a school should be judged by the individual & not by hear say...Thus letting you take responsibility for yourself.

That is a bunch of crap! I graduated from Madison in 2008. The school you go to does not me u can't succeed. It all depends on the person and the will to learn and be someone in life. So don't say that you shouldn't send them to Madison. I got a full tuition scholarship to the University of Arkansas of Pine Bluff for playing my instrument. I'm proud to say that I'm a Madison High School alumni.

I attended this school 12 years ago, it was dangerous back then and even more now. My friend works there and she told me that they need 4 police officers to control the school. The teachers don't care, I remember it being my 1st day and the teacher told us. I don't care if you learn anything, I still get paid. Teachers don't care, students don't care, no wonder it's the way it is.

Not a good school at all, most students only attend because they are zoned there. Not only does it not prepare you for college but it is dangerous. Teachers mainly received degrees from TSU enough said. They treat children like prisoners not, people with freedom of choice. If your kid is has a decent chance of going to college do not send them to Madison!
