Macy is an amazing school! These negative reviews are not true! I have attended this school since 7th grade and I'm in 8th now. Teachers DO typically give out mounds of homework, but you get used it. Macy just has high expectations for their students, which is why you usually get a lot of homework and projects. Especially, if you're a current student at Macy, you'll know what I mean, 8th Grade Portfolios! If you don't know anything about Macy, portfolios are basically: when you're an 8th grader, they make you gather work from all subjects from all of your years at Macy. Then you have to present them at the end of the year to a panel of judges (Macy teachers and staff). They give you a certificate if you pass and it might not sound like it, but it's a big deal. All 8th graders dread those couple of weeks, getting ready for those darn portfolios, and trying to muster the courage to present in front of some of your teachers and staff and what not dressed in fancy clothes. I am really not looking forward to it, but other than that, Macy has great staff, amazing teachers, especially Ms. Ligh, Mr. Lee, Ms. Casillas, Mr. Hayami, and well pretty much all of the teachers. Go Knights!
