I entered this school this year, and it was absolutely amazing! The music program is wonderful! The teachers helped me so much with all their tutoring at lunch. I love the fact that they have student teachers at this school, they all have new techniques that really help us students learn more. I've met so many great students here. Another thing I like is all these awesome goals and awards that really make you try to succeed. I can't wait for next year! I definitely recommend attending this school!
this is such a great school it has sports and acadmecis everything they are suppose to have a a fundemental school. they are very strict with homework and dress codes. but at the end of eigth grade year it is all worth it even to the people who dont like school. the sports are amazing they have awsome pe teachers that work very hard with the athletes and never let them done. in conclusion macarthur is such a great school. but then again macarthur is not for everyone..go macarthur keep up the good work... go big MAC
Wow, I once attended MacArthur and loved it. However, this school is now ran like a military school. I understand that academics are important. But they are crazy strict now. My son would do his math homework and at times he would not finish a few problems because he did not understand them. So, the next day he would get a homework card for the assignment being incomplete. How is he to finish something he does not understand. MacArthur is not for everyone. When you make the decision to send your child to MacArthur be prepared for you and your child to be stressed with all the assignments.
My two sons have been on the Fundamental system since 1st grade. I can't say the love it, but a child that loves school is rare nowadays. In regards to the skills, the Fundamental system, in my opinion is great! I read all the previous comments and some of them said that it was stressful, and I do agree! However, the stress it's worth it as the kids start showing results. I also read something about McFadden Middle school and although it is a fine school, I would not even think about sending my kids there to be average. I want them to excel and be the best they can and I think the fundamental system will, at least with my kids, accomplish that.
At a JR High level, a school is what the child is prepared to get out of it. I have a daughter who challenges herself daily. She excels at this school. I have another one who would never survive the rules that bind him. He is to compulsive. It is not for all kids...and parents.. Now for Sports... all sports have been pulled from Jr. High level.
3 kids went through this school and Greenville, they totally burned out, grades droped, overloaded with home work, thank god they were able to transfer to normal high schools, not plagued with over crowding. Thank God, we are out of these two high stress schools.
MacArthur fundamental intermediate school is a great school.This school focuses more on academics.This school has been a distinguished school for a very long time.MacArthur has a great slogan:Spirit,Pride,And Achievment.This school has a lot of kids have so much fun but also make them try to be successful.This school has many great teachers and very supportive teachers.Here at this school is the best choir and band players.This school involves a lot of parent involvement.Parents need to be involved to make their child/children have a better future than they did.That is why I rate this school the number 1 junior high.That's why I hope you do too.
