Do NOT bring your kids here. If you have a special needs child, you will have to fight with the district to get them to do what the law requires. Sad. If you have a child being bullied, you'll have to fight with the district to have them even acknowledge the possibility. I find senior administrators within the district morally bankrupt, and uncaring toward kids. This is not a district to be in if you can help it.
Best school in the area! Students who attend MFL Mar Mac have the opportunity to learn from great educators in a safe, clean learning environment. This school is always striving to offer the best curriculum and learning opportunities for each child. Some examples include keeping up with technology advancements (every 9-12 student is provided a laptop to assist with their learning experience while middle school and elementary students have appropriate access in the classrooms), providing opportunities for high schoolers to earn college credit by taking advance classes on-site and offering classroom space at the local Wetlands Center to help students connect with the great outdoors. Additionally, this school has excellent facilities, both for classroom learning experiences, and extra curriculars to include both the athletics and the arts. This school recently built an awesome new weight room/wrestling room complex and music addition. They redid the football field, track and baseball field....and now they are building an auditorium with plans to update the gymnasium and commons area in the next few years.
Turn around and run!!!! The special educational department is terrible. My daughter was @ grade level and is now three grades behind after one year. This is the worse school that I have seen in the state of Iowa.
