    I loved this school. I'm a 10th grader now and can honestly say the best year of my life up to now was 7th grade here. Best teachers were Ligh Ung Casillas Lee Murillo Buckhorn and Kawaharada. It's true that teachers give out a lot of HW and projects but it's not exaggerated it really does help students become responsible (especially the portfolio interviews!!!) So many good memories made here... ) Admin and teachers are genuinely caring about their kids almost every teacher I had had interesting discussions with us about their lives! responsibility ethics how to be a better person and inspiration. Would recommend Macy to any prospective parent interested in a good middle school for their child.

    Macy Intermediate staff and admin where excellent last year. My son had Ms. Protti Ms. Ligh and Mr. Lee...very dedicated teachers! The admin staff worked well together and were very visible on campus and were approachable. There is new admin staff this year so we'll see how 8th grade goes for my son. So far so GREAT with his teachers this year...Ms. Murillo and Ms. Casillas!

    Macy intermediate school is an amazing school. It prepares you for high school college and important career choices. It allows you to think about problem solving and if there are multiple ways of figuring out the problem that the teachers give you with. They have amazing programs for children such as film crew garden (GreenSpace) crew yearbook chew's crew fishing/emergency preparedness club Cross Country etc. All of the teachers at Macy are passionate about what they do and they allow give children the skills they need for future references such as study skills essay writing skills problem solving skills etc. Overall this school is an amazing intermediate schoo.

    Macy is an amazing school! These negative reviews are not true! I have attended this school since 7th grade and I'm in 8th now. Teachers DO typically give out mounds of homework but you get used it. Macy just has high expectations for their students which is why you usually get a lot of homework and projects. Especially if you're a current student at Macy you'll know what I mean 8th Grade Portfolios! If you don't know anything about Macy portfolios are basically when you're an 8th grader they make you gather work from all subjects from all of your years at Macy. Then you have to present them at the end of the year to a panel of judges (Macy teachers and staff). They give you a certificate if you pass and it might not sound like it but it's a big deal. All 8th graders dread those couple of weeks getting ready for those darn portfolios and trying to muster the courage to present in front of some of your teachers and staff and what not dressed in fancy clothes. I am really not looking forward to it but other than that Macy has great staff amazing teachers especially Ms. Ligh Mr. Lee Ms. Casillas Mr. Hayami and well pretty much all of the teachers. Go Knights!

    I attended Macy as a child and so have two of my older children. We took advantage everything this school had to offer(music sports fun activities academics). Macy has done a great job preparing us for both high school and college. Great staff!

    Well to be completely honest this school did not prepare me for my future. I attended this school for four years and I am graduating senior this year and had no idea (in middle school) what I should have been preparing for after high school. The preparation in this school did not set me up for high school let alone college. Even though I enjoyed the friends and some teachers I've still keep in contact with once I left and went to the high school I am attending now I had no idea students my age had been preparing for college since they where in middle school. I felt like this schools academic's and especially artistic elements disable the students from really learning and grasping on the importance of learning it now. At that age I didn't care about my grades or test scores. "This is middle school I don't have to worry about anything right now " is what I told myself. I really didn't find any teachers that shed some light on my actions or on anything regarding the importance of learning something right now! I guess what I'm really trying to say is that this school has little to no preparation for the future. And so I'm sorry to say but I would not recommend this school.

    I am very dissapointed with Macy school. If your child has disability and or struggling in school I would not send them to Macy. teachers are horrible ...................................................

    Macy Intermediate is an really great school. The teachers I had during my 3 years of education not only taught me the basic curriculum we were supposed to be taught but also lessons about life. It was especially the teachings of my basics and PE teachers that would probably influence me the most. They were really great people who inspired me to do my best. The people at Macy in general are wonderful people who care for others. Currently I'm finishing my 8th grade year and I know that I would miss this school when I finally graduate . PS MR HAYAMI ROCKS!!!

    I attended macy. As with any school some teachers were great and others not so much. I was in the music program there and learned so much and also had tons of fun! One of my favorite classes there was Physical Education because they would actually make us to what we were supposed to be doing in P.E.

    The school is well organized and very active. Acadmically it challenges the students and the teachers arepassionalte about their commitment to the students and Macy tradition.

    It's a great school. If your child works at a higher rate there are gate classes and advanced math classes I think it's a both fun and an educational way of learning. The Physical education program is great they help you learn new sports and teach you how to be self disciplined in everything that you do. Also in the 8th grade there are certain requirements to fufill like a portfolio review of all of your achievements a research paper(I like it because now I know how to do one when I go to high school also teachers teach you step-by-step how to complete it). Also at the end of the year we have so many rewards like a trip to knott's a bar-b que an 8th grade dance awards. In eigth grade we get an opportunity to go to Philadelphia New York and Washington D.C.

    I thank Macy's teachers and principal for doing an outstanding job on taking the time to meet the needs of my daughter. I can proudly go through the halls of UCLA admiring the knowledge that my daughter has acquired in Macy intermediate school. Teaching is a gift of the heart. As a father I'm proud of the knowledge the students receive on campus. Keep up the good work. Thank you for your concern.

    I have had 3 children attend Macy and found resources for remediation are scarce at his school. They focus a lot on the schools image than meeting your child's needs. A teacher even told me she is overwhelmed with children in her class and could only give my son as much as two minutes of her time.

    I am very please with Macy as a whole. I can see the committment and enthusiasm that both the principal and teachers have in educating our children. This is a very good quality for a school to posses.
