    "I've had mostly honors classes throughout my high school career, and the teachers genuinely care about their students and go out of their way to help them (i.e. staying after school). With the regular classes I've been in, however, the teacher's demeanor is SLIGHTLY different. I feel like they don't work as effectively to help their students if they need help understanding something. Overall, the teacher environment, both honors and non-honors, is friendly and approachable."

    "My overall experience at my schoold was great. I would not change my school if I had the chance. My school has so much spirit and we all stick together as a family when it comes to sports. The energy at my schoold is very high and my schoil is filled with many different skilled kids. It is amazing how much talent is at my school."

    "The athletic events are great! The students, staff, and parents do a wonderful job at supporting their athletes. Every school has their problems, but MacArthur knows how to solve them."
