Our Son attended this school for his freshmen year. The counselors and teachers seem to really support the kids to take education seriously and Aim High. The drama and band programs were demanding but great.

Some teachers are really good, but most don't care about you unless you have a lot of money, go to their church or your parents are friends with them. I got academic awards, and joined extra activities since I was a freshmen, but my name and /or picture always seems to be left out of recognition pages. I talked to the yearbook teacher, the counselor, and the principal, but it never does any good. They don't care. Some kids pictures smother the yearbook pages for nothing, just being there, and I can't get my picture in the yearbook for legitmate reasons. This is not a school, it's a country club.

When I went to school here I was ignored by most of my teachers, got fair grades and never was selected for any office or activity I tried out for. I watched the same kids get everyting all the time. Since I left Madisonville for college,I have suddenly become visible, student goverment and other campus activities too numerous to list here, the same work that got me b's and c's in Madisonville is getting me a 3.5 in college. Did I get smarter, become rich or famous? NO! I just left a snob-filled place for the real world. Visited recently to see that nothing has changed; great kids getting passed over and pushed aside. Hope they all get out soon before they're brainwashed into accepting the background w/out a fight! Better yet move out and let the 'priveleged' have the place. It'll close in a week.

This school has a terrible record of favortism. The entire yearbook is full of athletic photos and not much else. The academic photos and recognitions are buried in the back, and only certain students are featured, if your child recieves an academic award, you will only see it featured in the yearbook if the staff or faculty considers you influential or noteworthy. Building a huge athletic facility and many students must get by without textbooks. Priveleged students cheat, cut class, attack others, smoke, are disrespectful, routinely violate the dress code,and nothing is done. The claim of 'no child left behind' is so innaccurate it's sad. A more appropriate creed would be 'All but a few children left behind. What do you think you can do about it?' When confronted, the faculty doesn't even bother to deny charges of bias, they just shrug and repeat their mantra, ' This is how we've always done things here.'
