    "My daughters absolutely LOVE MacArthur high school! MacArthur has the most school spirit in the district as well as the highest AP scores. 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 FCA or Student Council to Skate Club and a Rock band called M5. There's AT LEAST 35 extracurriculars at Mac that I can name to you. This is what sets Mac apart from other schools. There are tutoring opportunities before and after school and there is even a late bus that will take the students that stayed for a club or tutoring. The teacher's at Mac genuinely care for their student's and it shows. The principal and VP's are very involved with the school, I see them at every school event! Everyone who gave Mac low rankings didn't take the initiative to actually get involved with the school or had students that didn't. Taking those higher AP courses and getting involved in a group is what makes the experience at Mac unforgettable."

    "I am a sophomore at MacArthur and I absolutely love it here! The teachers try to help as much as they can. The students at the school are the most sweetest people. I love this school! I recommend this school for any high school student or parent that wants their child to have fun in school while they are learning."

    "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 instruction, this is not the school for you. My son attended one semester and I suffered due to the severe change in his personality. He gave up because he felt ignored and did not receive good hands on teaching. The school does have good school spirit and I find that odd in this kind of environment, but it is a 5A school."

    "Lousy teachers with no teaching experience and sometimes no certification, definitely a warehouse school, runs like a cattle drive, lousy counseling, cafeteria food very unhealthy, campus too large, teachers aren't preparing students for state tests, and after school, no programming or effective tutoring, and very high failure rate. Principal cares only about sports."

    "Get the most out of MacArthur. I am a junior at Mac taking many AP classes and involved in many activities. If you are a student, get in to as many extracurricular activities as you can. Not only will it enrich your high school experience, you will feel like you are actually part of the school. Personally, I am a leader in Band, an improviser in Jazz Band, a healer in Sports Medicine, a tutor in UIL Science, and a team captain in UIL Literary Criticism. Regarding the school's AP program, Calculus is strongest due to Mr. Tillerson's skill and experience at being both an AP teacher and grader, but Physics and Chemistry could be considered substandard AP classes; yes, the subjects themselves are difficult, but the teachers simply are not cut out to teach AP which reflects in students' AP exam scores. Other AP classes are slightly above average mainly due to some well qualified AP teachers. All in all, MacArthur is a school best for those who wish to be a part of its legacy and motto, Fide et Opera."
