The Principal has poor communication skills. She said she'd call and never did. When confronted in person, she was unapologetic and cool as a cucumber.

My family has been part of the MacArthur community for many, many years, and we've never had anything but amazing experiences. However, this year is the first year that there is a rather "unwelcome" atmosphere. Faculty and staff are no longer fun and energetic as they usually are, and I believe its ...  Read more

Each school has their flaws, minor or major, no school can be absolutely perfect. I was a student at MacArthur for 5 months due to an evacuation in Egypt, and I graduated there as well. Even though I was there for a short time, I was able to make friends in a jiffy! Especially since they thought I was ...  Read more

I've read some of the other reviews, and honestly, it isn't as bad as you think. I may not be a parent, but I am a student at Macarthur. When bullying does occur, it's something small such as name-calling or something small that students could handle by ourselves but choose not to. I am a GT military ...  Read more

We are new to El Paso. I have three children in this school and have found the teachers to be excellent across the board. Unfortunately, the teachers do not have support of the principal, The school however is badly organized and that comes from the top. I agree with previous reviews that the principal ...  Read more

I am very sad to see how the staff treat the parents in this school. There is no professionalism in this staff and it sad because it reflects on the principal not being on top of the conduct of her employees. I think that the code of conduct that applies to the children should apply to the office staff ...  Read more

We are a military family stationed here in El Paso. My daugther has a wonderful teacher but the rest of the staff that I have come in contact with is very rude. If you are hispanic you should have no problems at this school. I have been treated badly multiple times upon entering this school. Parents ...  Read more

My daughter graduated this June 2009 from Mac Arthur. For me it was the best school compare to others. Good environment, good students. No gangs. Academic excellence. Principal and assistant principal make great team and they trying to discipline as hard as they can. Great School I highly recommended.
