Profile Completeness


Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

All of the staff are very compassionate and truly care about each and every one of their students. The newer principal, Mrs. Schneider, on the other hand, cares about the students but is very arrogant and just likes to silently prove to the teachers that she has control of them by changing policies that really affect the way students learn. It is understandable that all children in the same grade need to learn the same curriculum, but there is no reason to make a class complete chaos by having children who are more fit for a challenge learning the same thing as a child that may need more specialized attention on a topic. That just makes for much wasted time and leads to children fooling around. All if this leads to teachers who are more stressed, and makes teaching go from a career that teachers really love, to a job that is just done because it needs to be. Even with the flaws the school does have, it is a school that will give your child a wonderful core education that will hopefully lead to a lifetime of success.

Mrs. Semmons, the building principal, takes the time to get to know each student in the building and it shows. She is a conscientious and compassionate leader! Her fine leadership skills attract a great following of volunteer parents! - Thanks PTA

Good school and good principal. Mrs. Semmon really makes an effort. Still there are a couple of bad apples among the teaching staff.

MacArthur is an awesome school and that is a reflection on Principal Semmann. To describe the principal, I can do that in two words: She Cares!
