Madras is a great place! We have multiple cultures and languages represented in our school. We are very proud of the variety of academic offerings, but we are also proud of our athletics, activities, and clubs that we offer you. We want you to get involved! Not only will your involvement in activities outside the classroom enhance your high school experience, but this involvement will further connect you to our Madras community.
