    MCS will host our District Reading Fair, for all school level first place winners, on Thursday, January 19, 2017 at Madison County Central Office. A successful fair is one in which students enjoy the process of reading, create a project and share their favorite book & whether individually, with peers, or with friends or family members. Ultimately, as a result of participating in this process, students should experience a deeper enjoyment for reading and develop a lifelong love of reading.

Welcome to Our District 

Welcome to the website for Madison County Schools. With nearly 13,000 students, we are the fifth largest school district in the state of Mississippi. Madison County Schools is the highest scoring county school district in Mississippi to achieve an "A" rating based on the statewide accountability model.  

Our motto is “Madison County Schools: Mark of Excellence!” We are strongly committed to offering a challenging education, and that commitment is very evident in the programs and opportunities available to our children. Our goal is not only to help each child reach his or her fullest potential; but also for each child to excel. 

Our district has initiated a 1:M (One To Many) laptop program at the high school level, block scheduling in the middle schools, ICT/STEM course offerings beginning in 6th grade, and instituted the first administration of the ACT test to all 11th graders, onsite at the District’s high schools, at no charge to students. Our focus on “Motivate, Educate and Graduate” resulted in over 90% of the 2015 senior class graduating on time.

As you peruse our website, we hope you will find a great deal of helpful information about Madison County Schools’ programs, activities, and upcoming events.

Yours in Education,

Ronnie L. McGehee, Ph. D.
