    Exceptional students fro this school do well in college but average or below average students are not given enough attention to succeed unless a star athlete. A look at the honor roll compared to current sports rosters shows a big discrepency in grades. Not a great district but not a dismal district.

    This school is appalling. I can't believe this has a nine out of ten as that misrepresents how awful this high school is. The leadership is totally unsatisfactory within the district. The number of non-teaching positions and their administrative staff are not representative to the size of the district. Academic offerings are weak at best. Teachers are hired more to coach than teach then once they're in the district they quit coaching. I can't believe any right thinking individual could possibly give this school 5 stars. That's embarrassing unless of course it was a school administrator trying to skew the ratings. If you don't have to live in this district don't!!!

    Best school in the area! Students who attend MFL Mar Mac have the opportunity to learn from great educators in a safe clean learning environment. This school is always striving to offer the best curriculum and learning opportunities for each child. Some examples include keeping up with technology advancements (every 9-12 student is provided a laptop to assist with their learning experience while middle school and elementary students have appropriate access in the classrooms) providing opportunities for high schoolers to earn college credit by taking advance classes on-site and offering classroom space at the local Wetlands Center to help students connect with the great outdoors. Additionally this school has excellent facilities both for classroom learning experiences and extra curriculars to include both the athletics and the arts. This school recently built an awesome new weight room/wrestling room complex and music addition. They redid the football field track and baseball field....and now they are building an auditorium with plans to update the gymnasium and commons area in the next few years.
