We had our child in this school for a while. Overall, we were very unsatisfied. His primary teacher wasn't very engaged. The principle backed the disengaged teacher. The teacher stopped answering email/correspondence because of 'health reasons'. Our child actually went backwards for a few months in this school instead of forwards academically. Take your child somewhere else....this school isn't very good.

Don't waste your time. If your student doesn't fit neatly in the rigid box they create, he/she won't do well here. There's lots of potential here...but not follow-through from the teachers. Way too much gossip behind the scenes with the staff and principal. Don't let your student go here....it's not worth the hassle!

Probably one of the best schools in Liberal. Still one of the worst in the state. There are some good people here. But...anything creative or 'outside the box' has no place here. Our child doesn't fit into rigidity....that's all that was offered here. Very sad - this could be a great school....

What a top notch school! My children have had incredible teachers every year they've attended. The teachers as well as the principal has the students' best interest in the forefront. My husband and I feel blessed that our children have received such a wonderful education because of these people! Thank you Mrs. Evans and your staff!

I have been very pleased with the new administration at MacArthur. She is very understanding and listens to concerns parents have. I have found she runs her school very efficiently and effectively. I know, without a doubt, my children are in the best hands and receiving top quality education. Mrs. Munsell is no longer there, but Mrs. Hyde has been top notch as well.

Used to be a good school. That seems to be changing, as the new administration wants to socialize and make accomodations for the wealthy rather than run her school in an effecient manner. All our kids went through this school with Mrs. Ridenour (Awesome) and Mrs. Leiker (Awesome, too). The teachers are really good and are good with the children. However, when they get to third grade, make sure they get in Mrs. Munsell's class.
