    My daughter has attended this school from kindergarten through 5th grade and I have been EXTREMELY satisfied with all of her teachers. MACS teachers make learning engaging and staff are willing to do whatever it takes to help struggling students. MACS involves the parents and the community in education. This school has great school lunches helpful staff and teachers that are always willing to talk to parents about any questions or concerns they may have. I will miss MACS next year as my daughter advances to middle school and I would highly recommend it to another parent.

    Teachers can teach their own children. Some boundaries are not clear. Teacher quality is declining.

    Exceptional education. Great student teacher ratio. Safe. PE every day. Great teachers. Outstanding art teacher and 2-4th grade teachers and aides. Fantastic lunches and free before school care. Have had 3 children through and found it better than the private schools they had. Totally prepared them for Middle School and beyond. Couldn't get a better rating.

    WE HAVE LOVED MACS SINCE THEY BEGAN! KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK! WOULD LOVE LESS HOMEWORK THOUGH. 3-4 HOURS A NITE FOR 2ND GRADERS REALLY AFFECTS QUALITY FAMILY TIME. SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT.....

    Lack of attention to the students.

  • (9 years ago)

    Our granddaughters are new to the school this year. We are satisfied with how they have adjusted. Mosquitoes at lunch and at recess are quite troublesome.

    My oldest child has attented Macs for 4 years ans I believed with the student teacher ratio he recieves the one on one attention needed. Macs also encourages parents to be involved in the school by volunteer work. I do believe they should be better discipline action taken when needed. Other than that I find Macs a very safe and well qualified school. My son enjoys learning and loves the Facilty. Thanks to the Teachers putting alot of effort into teaching my son is an honor student.
