    "I love my school it's fun, smart, and life changing. One thing that needs to change is the students they need something that wants to make them learn."

    "MacArthur is the best high school in Decatur. The teachers are very supportive, the administration may be strict but it's fair and the education will help lead the way to success. I would like to see some teachers taking their job and their students education more seriously, proper planning because some teachers just throw out random assignment due to failure on their part as a teacher, fair and just treatment off all students because some are exempt and held higher than others."

    "I would like the staff and administration find a way to get the word out more about after school activities or anything that might be beneficial. I would also wish that there were not as many fights and I felt safer in the hallways. I also want teachers to take notice of bullying more often and keep tabs on their students and their actions more. The last thing I would like to see change is I want the school to focus less on whether someone is barely out of dress code and focus more on our academics. I do however like how some of the teachers will push you to be your best and will not give up on you, even when you want to give up on yourself."
