Madera High has a sevre disciplinary problem, amond other porblems. The majority of the students at this school are smoker, drinkers, gangster, and/or uncaring cruel beings. They don't wish to learn, they wish to act out and cause problems. The school itself is pretty much filthy, with trash being left all about and unclean facilities. This school trys to uphold there student by "threats" i. e. intervention or having the whole class pay for one or a group of people who disrupt the class or school in general. I write this not to just point out the faults or to harm anyone, I just want the word to be spread so this school and its staff and students can be happy and take part in what they do whith a smile and a eager will to learn or teach. This school can be be changed as all schools can, it just needs the effort and the determination to change this school in order for its students can be what they can be, so much more than they can see. You can continue to raze this school and its community or you can raise this school and its community whilst invoking happiness in the hearts and eyes of everyone.

Madera high may not be the best school and may be a little crowded but i like it. This school is real and I know the teachers, Principal, and councelors are doing their best to keep this school running and keep it in order. Me as a student find this school a very good one.

I have so enjoyed teaching here and have really appreciated the support of other teachers, staff and our new administrator. Every day (almost every day) I go to school I am thankful for the wonderful students in my classrooms. Of course there are things that need to be better...but, almost everyone here are trying to do their best to make a positive difference here at Madera.

this school is not 'great'. there are many kids just going there to baby sit. it is good that they seperate the school into school of e.t and humanities ect... but if you dont like the one your in it is a big hassle to get out and into another. and it is almost impossible to change your classes. not a good school, and may never will be.

Madera is a great school. There is a lot of students so its really hard for a teacher to give one on one.

My daughter started madera high january 2003-her 2nd semester freshman year and I have nothing good to say for the principal or councelors. I have received no support from either. The teachers do seem to be dedicated but without support from administration have a tough road to haul. If you have a choice as a parent find another school.

Madera High School's teachers are very diverse as well as the student population. Students are offered excellent elective choices i.e.: Beg, Int., Adv. Welding, Floral Design, Intro To Architecture, and many more. Although some teachers' teaching methods are a bit unorthodox, most are effective. However, it is reportedby students, that most teachers and their classrooms do not provide a comfortable learning environment. It has also been stated that information that is later proven to be essential in state testing is not covered throughout the year's curriculum.

This school has no apparent direction and does not focus on the future. Madera High School is far behind in most categories. The facilities are below average and the respect that this school receives from other parents, teachers and coaches from other schools is below average.

Wonderful counseling avalability and quality for students. Students are seperated into 'schools' which helps them focus on careers or vocations they may be interested in. Great town involvement and spirit in school activites- sports and academic.
