Aside from a couple of the teachers and other staff members, I honestly felt that they did not truly care about the well being of the students. I did well in school, so I am not a former student who is trying to blame my being unsuccessful on the school. However, while being in college now I feel that I was not prepared in some areas, compared to other students from other schools. During the week of graduation practice, we were told that graduation wasn't about us and that it was about the community. Really? It's no secret that we live in a small community and many community members come to graduation. But we students worked hard to get that diploma, and the ceremony isn't about us? Come on! I couldn't wait to get out of there. Like I said previously, there are a few staff members who truly do care about the well being of their students. Those few staff members made my days there tolerable. However, I would suggest parents to send their kids to another high school if they had the option

Attending this high school was honestly the worst part of my life. Basically, if you aren't an athlete, you might as well be invisible. The school continues to cut classes and supplies to save money, but yet the sports teams are constantly getting new equipment. And everyone is just so proud of the "amazing" football team, who haven't played a decent game since the 80's. Many of those football players grew up to work at this school and act like they haven't matured at all since then. I feel sorry for the few great teachers working there because their time is being wasted trying to teach kids who don't want to learn.

I attended this school from another town-- unfortunately MAMHS was part of the SAD59 district that my school was a part of). I had no choice but to attend MAMHS unless my parents paid out of pocket. All the school cares about is the varsity softball and varsity women's basketball team. Aside from a select few teachers, the faculty did not care about how well students did. I was a student that worked hard to earn the grades that a received, but even being a hard worker and taking initiative myself, this school did not prepare me for any post-secondary education. Maybe it had something to do with us being on the list of top 10 worst high schools in the state of Maine my junior and senior year.

The education you gain at Madison Area Memorial High School is unsatisfactory at best. The education I received from Madison did not prepare me for any post-high school education, nor the skills I needed for the working world. During my time at Madison, I moved to another state and was unable to continue attending the high school there because the course work was much too difficult compared to Madison and I was forced to move back to finish school. My post-high school education classes in a different state prepared me for college and I am now getting the education I need to become successful, which I could not have done with the education I received at Madison alone.

This school is a joke. I would not send my dog here. The students do not learn anything, and the staff only cares about themselves. The school caters to their athletes needs but that is about it. They run a schedule that does not even make sense. Four classes a day and each one is eighty minutes. If you can never speak to a teacher because they are always "in a meeting". If you want your children to get a quality education and become successful in the future consider private school or don't move here. One thing I can say is that the parents are very involved however it is the school that does not want to co-operate

This school is by far the worst school I have ever attended. The principal is by far the creepiest and most touching principals I have met. This is a terrible school and only focuses on its terrible football team. If you have any other options for a high school choose them over this school in a heart beat.
