Maclay has been a great environment for my children. Coming from another private school here in town, we were worried about the transition. Needless to say, my children did just fine.

Both of my children are excelling in their academics. The teachers are phenomenal, especially Mr. Norment, Dr. Day, Dr. Fitzpatrick, Mrs. Fantle, Miss Armstrong, Mrs. Hunter, Mrs. Walker, Mrs. Maferrer and so many others!

I've had many people ask why Maclay? That's simple, I'm investing in my children's future. There is no better gift, than that of a great education.

My experience with Maclay School has been a normal experience for any other high schooler. Some programs that they have do lack compared to other schools, but they make up for it in other aspects of high school. To do well here, you do need to take the right classes. However, all of the classes offered here do prepare you in the best ways for college. Overall, I would give Maclay School a "very good" rating because it is a helpful community, that cares for one another. I have always felt more comfortable at smaller schools, and I guess that is one of the major reasons why Maclay has been good for me. This school is a very good high school.
Our kids have attended Maclay since middle school (now high schoolers). Transitioning the kids to Maclay at middle school was the perfect time. We feel confident both kids are receiving an excellent education with a focus on college prep. Each kid focuses on their unique academic, athletic and extracurricular desires and strengths. Maclay is a wonderful community of staff, students and very engaged families.
