Mc Arthur High School has diversity with a mix of young and tenured staff that is aggressive and up to date with their sports and academic programs. This aggressive nature to aid the majority of children for scholarships to higher education does not apply due to staff apathy, exceptions exist if they deem a child a project. The atmosphere and composure of the students involved in school projects such as sports, clubs, music, etc. to accept someone new to become a part of that program is exceptional. Attitude of students as a majority is positive, they want to be productive in school and life which reflects staff leadership. Parent involvement in booster clubs, sports activities, leadership seminars,plays, choirs, and band activities by volunteering in various school commencements to make them memorable for the students to the giving of financial support to continue there success is extremely positive and appreciated by the staff. The only way to improve this school is to reward the teachers with class teaching materials as well as more pay which is true of any school.

Great School! Teacher's care about their students and work to make them successful. Academics are as good as any school in the state. Mac Students have been named National Merit Scholars (15 in the last five years), Presidential Scholars (1 in the last there years) which only two are named per state each year, and Academic All Staters (9 in the last 5 years), 70% of Mac teachers have advanced degrees, with 2 having doctoriates in their selected fields. Fine arts are a big part of Mac with their band and choirs winning many awards across the state. Athletics are second to none with football, basketball, softball, golf all making it to the state playoffs each of the last 8 years.

I spent one year in McArthur Highschool as a junior this last year, and it was a very good experience. Bullying is next to none, good teachers, etc. However, their english program was behind compared to what I was used to, it just seemed to slow paced and childish. I guess this was because I was for some reason put in a co-ed class with students with learning disabilities, and this was the standard class. I switched to the AP English class, was all better.

As a military move to Lawton I can't be happier with this school. This is THE best high school in Lawton!! The teachers and staff are very caring and want nothing but the best for the kids. They helped my daughter with this transition and she is doing great!

My son was a transfer student due to a military move. We found MacArthur HS to be overall a good school with many good teachers who try their hardest with the students. I give Mr. Hatch, the band instructor, and all the AP teachers many stars for being fair and preparing my son for college. I did have a small problem when I first enrolled him and they didn t want to put him in the AP classes because he didn t have the prerequisites required at THIS school. I made them to put him in (their comment was that he could always back down to the lower class) and he got all A s. The other bigger issue is the JROTC program at MacArthur lacks leadership. They do not care about the children and show extreme favoritism. Too bad because JROTC can be a really good program.

Mac is the best school in Lawton, and one of the best in Oklahoma. It rules Lawton, because it is so good. Yet, it really doesn't have much competition in Lawton.

My son went through all the grades in the lawton public schools and his experiences with teachers at the high school varied widely in terms of their involvement with students, competency, and ability to administer discipline in the classroom. Koodos to mrs. Hernandez in the art dept. Thank you to mrs. Shorter, the high school student advisor for helping our son make good choices in class selections that would help him in college. Our son was fortunate in being able to take most of the advanced placement classes. He had a caring teacher who, while serving the military,he drove 90 miles, many nights, preparing him for placing out of college physics. He placed out of 9 hours! as he heads to ou now, he's reasonably prepared. Wish mhs called for more parent involvement.
