Serving 1,500 students in grades 9-12, it is located in the Clairemont Mesa neighborhood, north of Interstate 8 and west of Interstate 805.
The Warhawks were Central League Champions for football in 2005, 2007, and 2008. They went to the C.I.F Finals in 2008 against defending champion Valley Center, led by head coach Rick Jackson. In 2010, Madison High School won their first C.I.F title against Valley Center.
Two years later, the football program won their second C.I.F. San Diego championship in 2012. The team was invited to and won the 2012 California Division 3 State Championship Bowl game.
