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!

My experience was generally good and satisfactory. Some teachers will give relatively little homework, however they will make up for it with inversely proportional difficulty classwork and quizzes. Others may leave it up to you to self-teach and simply give an adequate environment and support to do so. But of course there are still many who will constantly provide work for the entirety of the day, everyday. This variety of teachers provides an education in every possible way, and make McArthur what it is today.
MacArthur High School is a very diverse center that has opened its arms for me and given me new opportunities as a new resident of this country. The school is not a bad place for students to start looking towards the future, but it has flaws on the steps that the staff gives for the students to take and the lack of help that the school shows is definitely something that must be fixed. Also, the food on the Cafeteria has to be improved because must of the meals that they serve have been kept for over a week or more, and it doesn't taste good mainly because of that. Overall, this school has a good environment for students to start looking towards what can they do to make a difference in their life.
