I have been attending McArthur High school for about almost 3 years now and I have enjoyed every step of the way so far! Of course there have been some rough patches and bumps along the way but no school is a perfect one. During those tough times, I struggled with my math class. Through all the tears and stress, the teachers reached out and lent me a helping hand every time. My school offers a free after school program to the students. In this program the teachers stay after school and use up their own free time to help the students who need extra help. Everyday i'd have a teacher with me helping me with my homework, answering my questions, and explaining things to me I didn't understand. This school has really made my high school experience enjoyable and I wouldn't ever trade my experience here for anything else!

The environment is good, the campus is open-spaced and good to locate from one class to another. Great diversity, college readiness, and assistance in locating/deciding colleges and preparing financial aid paperwork is available to students who want them. Academics is somewhat lacking. There is good academia in certain categories such as biology, chemistry, calculus. However, the main category that seems to be lacking in history, economics, English, and the absence of home-economics.
The main priority for me is a school that suits not just me but everyone around me,yeah MacArthur is not the best school hands down but it excel in the important things.Like Clubs, socialism and very well known others criteria in this organize school of MacArthur.Everything doesn't have to be excelled but there are couple of commodity you have to do for it to be fitting.Like example,the security is on point for MacArthur high school there been less than 2 fights this whole year due to the cooperative security crew. And i appreciate the MacArthur organization for helping me succeed in life, yes there been an few ups and down but i achieved it.
