The Madison City School System is located in Madison, Ala., serving Madison and Triana. The System was established in 1998 after separating from the Madison County School System and consists of two high schools, two middle schools, seven elementary schools and a stand alone PreK Center. A brief history on the formation of Madison City Schools is in the video link below.
Empowering students for global success.
The City of Madison Board of Education, with effective leadership and community cooperation, will provide all students a nurturing, safe and effective learning environment, an uncompromising excellence in instruction, a relevant and rigorous curriculum and state-of-the-art facilities so they can achieve their fullest potential, strive toward global learning, compete globally in the work force and contribute positively to society.
The system has a $73 million operating budget and employs 675 certified personnel. Enrollment for the start of 2016-17 is projected to surpass 10,000 students. Test scores on national standardized tests are above the national average at all schools. Madison, located in North Alabama near Huntsville, has a population of over 45,000. It is an affluent suburban community, with residents working in highly technical jobs with companies such as SCI, Intergraph, Boeing, as well as the U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Command and NASA. Over 69% of adults in Madison hold Bachelor's or advanced degrees.
The town of Triana just south of Madison is a community with just under 1,000 residents. Although Triana has not experienced the same growth rate as Madison, it too has benefited from the increase in technology based businesses coming to the North Alabama area. A large percentage of its residents work in technology related business and industry.
Residents of both communities believe in quality education for their children and have demonstrated that by raising their ad valorem taxes in support of education. Parents are active in their support of school functions by participating in booster clubs, PTA, school events, and school volunteer programs.
