Some people get upset when they can't get their way. This is a school where every child is treated with dignity and respect. Principals and teachers are there for all children. They do not show favortism. The principal is doing a fantastic job keeping the children and staff safe.
The teachers my children have had are wonderful, the office staff is wonderful, the principal on the other hand....No words to describe her. Any school would be better without her. She does not take into consideration the parents when making certain decisions and is plan rude to everyone. If she doesn't like you she will avoid you and forget about communication with her, there is none. I would not recommend this school to anyone at all. My children will not be attending this school after this school year ends. Worst mistake ever to have my children attend this school.
I would not recommend this school to anyone. I have had nothing but bad experience here. My child will not be going back to this school. Teacher, Principle, Vice Principle are all rude. The nicest people at the school are the office staff and the children
I really like Mary McArthur. The staff is very nice and I love how they do things there. I will be sending all of my kids to Mary McArthur.
My child has gone here since 1st grade. With the exception of a few teachers, the teachers care and are willing to help a child and teach them what needs to be taught. The principal however is another story. If you have any issue with a teacher, you and your child are in the wrong without exception. You and your child are aways the ones making false accusations. She will talk down to you, belittle you and treat you as though you are the child. Look at the ratings, they aren't showing all of the reviews, there is a reason for it. Stay away from Lola Williams and you will go by smoothly if you get the right teacher. Best suggestion, rather than approaching her, go to the school board. You will not get results by going to her.
We love Mary McArthur Elementary School. On a daily basis our daughter is excited to go to school. Everyone that works at the school has a desire to see each child excel to the best of their ability. The curriculum is consistent throughout the school; the only difference is in the teaching styles and creativity they each bring. The atmosphere throughout the day is consistently positive, and motivating.
My daughter has been going to Mary Mcarthur since kindergarten.She is now in 2nd grade, and we love this school. Everyone teachers, staff etc. are wonderful. They constantly push the kids to be better and to learn as much as they can
