Douglas MacArthur Elementary School Reviews

This school is absolutely HORRIBLE! The administration does not care about any problems going on inside of the school community. All they do is punish, punish, punish and that is it. Every now and then you will get a good teacher, but that is very rare. The main problem is, again, the administration. They act like they care, but they really don't. Every since the change of the principal, students have been extremely languid about the school. Overall, this school is absolutely terrible.

Awful. Teachers can’t teach or don’t care. Teachers completely ignore admin. Vice principle just ignores any and all problems. I hear it was 1 of the best schools in the country until those teachers retired. The 5th grade teachers are great. But the rest seem like they went into teaching for a job. Definitely not because they like kids or wanted to be mentors. I feel bad for the kids at this school no one cares if they’re truly educated or not.
