Ten percent of graduating class go to community college, most others regional schools. Used to be good, but gone downhill. Public school has better academics now.

I attended Maclay for 10 years (2-12th grade); my brother and sister also graduated from Maclay (11 years and 10, respectively). -Positively: The Spanish program is excellent; I was nearly fluent leaving high school. My social studies / history background had a great foundation. And, although I was terrible ...  Read more

Excellent classes, fantastic teachers, beautiful campus. If you do not succeed here then you don't have the will to do so.

I've attended Maclay for seven years now. I will not specify what grade I'm in, due to teachers hunting me down for saying this. I don't like being asked why I strongly dislike Maclay.

Maclay has weak and under-funded arts and music programs (at least, they were weak when I attended, but admittedly were improving as I graduated). However, science, English, foreign language, math, and history are all very strong. I was ...  Read more

My two children attended Maclay, and it was the best investment I could have made for them. I work for the university system in Florida, so I know how important a solid educational foundation is for success in an academically rigorous college setting. My kids are now adults, and they are successful ...  Read more

I am very impressed how the teachers are more than just instructors. I moved to the area last year and anytime I have a question or a concern about anything, they are so happy to help. My daughter has done extremely well. There is a great deal of parent involvement. I had the opportunity to assist in ...  Read more

The academic curriculum is very structured and there is a good amount of homework. If your child is bright there aren't very many opportunities for enrichment. There is also a very structured physical education program which I worry might be a stronger influence than academics right now. Not a bad choice ...  Read more

The school does a good job of providing a great education at a competitive cost. I have lived in a city where costs were about double Maclay's and the education may have been 10% better. The attitude of the of leadership probably more caring at Maclay.
