I have had two student to grace the halls of MacArthur High School. One of them was a cheerleader four years and the other one was part of the football and basketball teams. All their teachers were eager to support them and always encourage them to do their best. As a result of this I will be sending my other two children to this school so they can be apart of the cardinal pride.

I absolutely love this school. This school is one of the most diverse schools (students and staff) that I have ever seen. The students are great and continue to do great things. The staff are extremely hard working professionals who treat all students with respect and continually raise the level in an out of the classrooms. If you think that I am biased then you are right. I am very biased because I truly believe that Irving MacArthur is the best school.

MacArthur, TX is definitely one of a kind! The faculty, staff, and students at MacArthur High School are by far the BEST in Texas!

My daughter is a sophmore at MacArthur and has had a very good experience. The classwork is challenging but she is learning how to advocate for herself and her teachers work hard to help her meet her goals. There are a ton of activities and ways to get involved for everyone!!! She is connected to the campus and has truly made some amazing friendships with great kids!!! I recommend Mac to anyone who is interested in a rigorous school setting and a climate that focuses on engaging connections for kids.

Most work is on the computer Yes I do think they give too much work My child was reading a poem given by a teacher The poem is very sexual and excessive content for a minor even if it's a poem from English Class
