I like a few teachers at MacArthur High school. They go above and beyond the call of duty and make the experience that much more enjoyable. What I would change? I would change is the way they use the school allocated funds. Just this year they remodeled parts of the school that did not need it but they failed to get any textbooks that were not from the 1990's. There are still several parts of this school that is riddled with mold that could be potentially harmful to students and faculty, yet they decided to put in unnecessary decorations. They have equipment that is well over forty years old in the Art Department and fell short in acquiring anything new in that nature. There are leaky rooves that leak air conditioning unit condensation into the food of students in the cafeteria. There is so much wrong with this one school and I can only imagine about the others, but there is not ever going to be enough time to list all the aliments that Lawton Public Schools have.

Lawton Public Schools prepares their students for their future, while helping each individual reach their personal goals. The teachers and staff are fighting everyday for each and every one of the students in Lawton Public Schools, making sure they get the education they deserve. While the teachers and staff are excellent our textbooks are outdated and lack information our schools also struggle with academic funding.
Decent school district, better quality teachers needed! My younger brother attends the local elementary school.
