Mr. Savage bullies the teachers and uses memos(to the Superintendent) as a way of intimidation. He is very inconsistent with discipline and will tell students that they are suspended but they are back in school the next day. Despite a lack of a STRONG leader the teachers do an outstanding job. If I were a parent and could afford it. I would send my child to a Private School before I would send them to MacArthur! The school motto is One Team One Mission but it really is One Team HIS MISSION!
Love MacArthur Middle School, the teachers and principal are great. They have to make tough decisions but always try to get the job done. My child did well there but often talked about other children misbehaving and causing disruptions. Mr. Savage and his team would take care of the students which makes me feel safe. The school could improve in many areas and parents should help the school not only criticize.
I have two children attending MacArthur Middle School and am happy to say it has seen great changes. The principal has made it a positive and safe environment. The teachers and staff are committed to the children's education and embrace the same positive attitude. The only thing this school needs, in my opinion, is more parent involvement. I would encourage parents to be involved in your child's education and partner up with the teachers and staff at MacArthur to ensure your child is getting what they need and are on the right path.
I am currently attending this school and MacArthur middle school is a safe environment for your children to be in the Principal makes all students feel safe the school has fun art classes the teachers make the kids feel safe and the kids feel like that want to go back the teachers have fun with us and make us laugh we feel comfortable with them and when we have a problem we feel like we can talk to them about it over all its a great school
