Spent 4 years at this school. Just graduated recently. I was taught everything that I could ask for. Teachers at MacArthur High School were involved in all student activities, from academics to athletics. I had a wonder experience overall at Mac! Forever a Brahma!
Review MacArthur High School
Attending MacArthur High School was a benfital experience. Not only did I make lifetime friends, but I was able to extend my knowledge and prepare for college. Most of the teachers were excellent educators, they truly cared about the student and how successful they were throughout the curriculum. I'm glad I was able to attend MacArthur High School, Go Brahmas!
The best part of MacArthur has always been the people. Although it may be a sub par school, the students, the teachers, and the environment created by the two makes the high school experience entirely unforgettable. Of course, there are some problems. Some students, and teachers, could never quite grasp the idea that not every student is straight, or cisgendered, but those who did far outweighed those who didn't. Sure, my four years at Mac may have been rocky at times, but they proved true the age old idea that high school is the best four years of your life.
