Madison High School Mission Statement
The mission of Madison High School, in order to assure students opportunities to live well adjusted,
productive lives in our changing world, is to afford our students training in the areas of technology,
academics, social skills, citizenship, and in developing a positive self-image.
On November 5th, the Madison Physics class competed in the High School Design Challenge at the University of Kansas. Two teams competed in the "To the Moon & Back" competition which required them to make a vehicle that could go down a ramp and be launched by a launcher of their own design. Two other teams competed in the "Lego Mindstorm" challenge in which they had to build and program a machine to pick up blocks on a course. The class had a fun time preparing their designs and enjoyed their experience at KU.
Twenty Madison High School students attended the annual Flint Hills Technical College FOCUS Day, which brought in over 400 students from across the area to view programs offered at the college. Throughout the visit, students had the opportunity to see hands-on demonstrations and take part in activities related to the 19 programs of study that are offered at FHTC. The most popular programs visited by Madison High students were Health Occupations Tech (HOT), Hospitality/Culinary Arts (HCA), and Graphic Arts Technology (GAT).
Madison seniors Quentin H. and Katie G. were honored last night at the Kansas Honor Scholars Reception at El Dorado High School. The guest speaker for the program was David Johnston,
Vice President of Internet Services & Marketing KU Alumni Association. They are pictured with MHS principal and superintendent Ryan Bradbury.
The Kansas Honors Program recognizes and awards high school seniors for their academic achievements. Each year KU alumni gather in more than 37 locations across the state for an awards ceremony and honorary dinner or reception. All high-school seniors who rank academically in the top 10 percent of their class are asked to attend as guests of the Association with their parents, principals, counselors and superintendents.
The Kansas Honors Program has been a KU tradition since 1971. It is designed to promote academic excellence in secondary education, to reward high school seniors for their hard work and dedication, and to support our Kansas communities.
Each Kansas Honor Scholar receives a certificate and a special edition of Webster’s New College Dictionary, and has a chance to qualify for a $4,000 scholarship to KU. Scholars are selected based on academic records through the previous semester that are provided by high school principals. Selections are made regardless of curricula (weighted or non-weighted), majors, occupational plans or higher-education goals. Before each program, a list of Kansas Honor Scholars will be released to all area newspapers and posted online. To find the Kansas Honors Program in your area, click here.
