Madison High School Ribbon Cutting

An addition was constructed at Madison High School to accommodate increasing enrollment. The building has a program capacity utilization percentage of 104 percent in SY 2021-22, indicating a slight capacity deficit. The completed project provides approximately 64,000 SF, including science classrooms and library. The project was funded by the 2017 and 2019 bonds.
