The AVID program (college prep) is new but very helpful, both of my daughters are in it and I see a lot of improvement. There's really something for everybody from ...  Read more

This school is the bare minimum. Everything is done on the computer and there are no hands on teachers. A student can easily get lost and loose hope with this kind of environment. Most of the kids don't care and are just as disconnected as the teachers. If your child needs attention and hands on ...  Read more

Mac Arthur is all about the money. Unless your parents make more that 100K a year you are nobody. The halls are overly crowded and people all try to be something they're not. I hated MHS because they are all stuck up even the staff.

I cannot imagine her going anywhere else. It is no wonder the school has been a Blue Ribbon School ...  Read more

MacArthur provides a great Academic Curriculum for the people that want it. It offers AP, Honors, GT and Dual Classes. It has many extracurricular activities and you even have the chance of strating a Club yourself.

MacArthur has a good GT program that prepared my daughter for her first year at UT in Austin. They definitely could improve however, when they deal with a struggling student. They must have mandatory telephone or email communication directly with a parent. There are no guarantees on delivery of information ...  Read more
