    "am a single mother with a nine year old son who has ADD and the teacher at this school is so great. I am recommending her for teacher of the year. my son doesn't talk to much and this teacher (special ED) has communication device so he can talk and learn in the classroom. she also teaching him sign language so he can communicate and learn as well in the classroom and so he will talk more. it is working my son is saying more words and he is learning how to read. the pricinpal and staff our very nice and terrfic as well. I wasn't so sure at first about the school but now since he has been here for almost a year I know this is best school for my son.

    "I have one son at MacArthur and another who went all the way through and is now at Taft and I can not say anything bad about the school.Ms. Buchko is an awesome principal and the staff is great too. The school does lack parental involvement."

    "I attended macarthur and now I have 2 kids going there. I couldn't be happier with every aspect of is school. The principal is the standard by which all principal's should measure up to. Teachers fantastic. I just wish there was more parent involvement was better. I don't know what else they can do to make parents get involved. alumni class of 1973"

    "School does not work well with children who have ADHD. There is no special procedure so that they can retain attention. Was told simply to put him on medicine. Moving to get child into better school."
