Madison City School district was established in 1998 after separating from the Madison County School district. The separation was driven by high expectations within the community to take education to a higher level. The MCS student population is diverse with over 60 different languages represented in the district. Minorities account for more than a third of the student population, with about 25% of students coming from households with incomes at or below the poverty level.
The Madison City School (MCS) system is located in Madison, Alabama. It serves 10,225 students spread across 2 high schools, 2 middle schools, 7 elementary schools, and a Pre-K Center. The vision of Madison City Schools is to empower students to excel at all levels. This is embodied in the motto of Madison City Schools: Empowering Students for Global Success. Our mission demands a focus on student-centered instruction, a relevant and rigorous curriculum, state-of-the-art facilities, and strong engagement of the community.
