Teachers offer extra help sessions before and after school and on Saturdays. They attend student events and truly care about the students.

Test scores on regents exams clearly show the constant rise. Also, MacArthur HS has a policy of open enrollment in its AP classes, encouraging students to stretch their academic skills as far as they can.

Respect for students and staff is expected and demanded. Lack of respect is a suspend able offense.

See previous comment. Also, students travel to countries like Peru where they helped a local school for the poor to build a wall around the structure to keep them safe. Every year MacArthur students participate in Habitat for Humanity, helping to build affordable housing for poor families near home.

MacArthur students have been recognized in the media for their strong support for students with Autism who attend a special program at Mac. Their support is not just fundraising and lip service. Along with the large sums raised, students open their hearts to these students, including them in high school life so they can have the experience of feeling like they belong.

My three children attended this school and all are now professionals with good jobs who still maintain close contacts with their former classmates and teachers. MacArthur HS is an excellent school - strong academics, caring teachers and rigorous discipline that is definitely enforced. I can't say enough about the fine school that it is except to say that it doesn't get the credit it deserves.

So very please with everything this school has to offer. Classes, activities, clubs and sports. The amount of extra help offered is unsurpassed. The Honors and AP classes are top notch. Please don't forget about the amazing Music and arts program

As the parent of 4 students- 2 of whom are recent Mac graduates, I can say our tax dollars are put to excellent use. Both children began college with AP credit, one even began College as a sophomore. The music program is excellent, The sports wonderful- except for one teacher in 8 years, they have all been very dedicated and are really available to the students...Just last night I went to the Honor Society Induction and the Teacher of the Year was my children's teacher, they just said she is awesome, and thats from 15 year olds...Go Generals!

I am a Mac Arthur graduate and my sons go to the school. I cannot say enough about the teachers who work at Mac. They are so dedicated . Teachers show up to events to support the students.The sports program has developed into one of the best around.
