  • I'm a parent of a Cardinal High Marching band student. While at the Edgewood Band show, myself and many around me couldn't help but notice how much fun your band was having both on and off the field. All the bands were GREAT but your band REALLY supported all the bands. What a great feeling it was to watch. Keep up the great work and I'll be looking foward to seeing your band again. Randal S.

  • I went to Madison, and graduated in the class of 2007. It was a really great experience for me. There was never a dull moment, with all the opportunities presenting themselves (clubs, sports, dances, etc.) I think that Madison High is a great school to send your children to. And would highly recommend anyone and everyone to attend, your students will never forget the powerful impact that their incredible staff with leave on them. I know I never will.

  • Most MHS alumni would agree that we were not prepared for college, or really anything more than a life that includes never leaving Madison, having a few children with another alumni and living in one of the local trailer parks. MHS makes life especially ill-prepared for the athletes, who are treated with esteem, even by the teaching staff, to the point where they expect such treatment indefinitely.

    The education I received at MHS was also lacking, my only salvation was my natural curiosity and willingness to look things up in the public library. I missed the grand majority of my classes at MHS, skipping them in order to go to a library where I'd learn more, and still managed to graduate with a 3.0

    Also, I took French and German in school, during my junior year, the classrooms each class was held in swapped, so I was in the same room for an hour a day, all 4 years. I mention this because the ceiling in said room had a leak in the ceiling that half-filled a 10-gallon bucket with green sludge every day. Meanwhile, the school built a new football field and accepted an SBH/SBD program for the money it would bring.

    Recently, the school system also hired an ASL interpreter who was not qualified to sign. From what I understand, the Deaf student's grades dropped and the parents had to complain before anything was done. There are reasons one must have a license to interpret in a school, apparently Madison just didn't care. As a qualified and licensed interpreter myself and knowing what these laws entail, I am disgusted by their complete disregard and concern for both the ADA and this student.

    If you're a parent living in Madison, I'd highly recommend paying for Lake Catholic. And I'm Jewish. That's how bad it was.
