My experience at MacArthur High School so far is a little bit below average. I feel like they can do a better job than what they do now, and can change how the school prepares us in life. What i want to see change in this school is how they mentally prepare us for college, applying for jobs, and transition from high school to college.

My experience at MacArthur has been good. Great teachers, nice students, a lot of motivators. I've learned so much through out my years in high school. Teachers can be a little bit pushy but I understand why, they just want you to make it to graduation and after that, be who you want to be. I'm glad I'm graduating from MacArthur high school. The only thing I would like to change is being at school super early.
