Macarthur School Ratings & Reviews

I have nothing but great things to say about MacArthur! Our experience has been positive-I know my children are receiving a terrific education! Parent involvement is encouraged, teachers Are professional, knowledgeable & show true concern and care for students and Mrs. McIver, the principal sets the tone for the building. It is one based on mutual respect and high expectations for all.

Binghamton schools are horrific. There are some talented teachers at MacArthur but they are hindered by a curriculum that keeps kids behind peers in other communities-behind by years. The Superintendent and other administrators, in positions for decades, are simply horrible. It is a school that decided that no child shall learn anything new until the most behind student catches up--so everyone sits. When my kids transfered to a system in a reasonable community they had to catch up to their peers. They went fron getting 100s without having to think in Binghamton to really having to study and learn in order to get reasonable grades. Why the parents don't demand that the schools are at least decent is beyond me. I tried to get the administration to address the slow pace of academics-with no success-what's the hurry? Kids spent 4 years learning to read a clock-moving slowly from where the numbers are placed in 1st grade to the quarter in 3rd! Dah. A failing school system in a failing community. Educated parents will be enraged --or at least should be.

This school wasted 4 years of my kid's life but she sure could paste and cut when she gradeated and she could do fourth grade work real real good by the time she left. Not a good school for kids who want to be at least average. Great if your kid is not too motivated. She won't feel pushed or pressured. Some great teachers but awful system. Just awful.

'2/5 stars' sums it up. Kids arrive eager to learn in k. The district curriculum holds them back year after year. My kids were so bored by a curriculum that kept students years behind grade level. Dedicated, talented teachers, devoted parents and a lousy administration at the district level. They make terrible choices by buying and implementing terrible programs. They used to wait to almost 2nd grade to begin reading. Kids who were reading at home were stuck re-learning and re-learning their letters. Requests to teach them younger were denied. Then they adopted some program that starts kids earlier but the kids read by themselves for hours during school-instead of being instructed. They can read at home. Even families in poverty can get books. Please go back to instruction and other topics besides reading. Not a good choice for families who value education.
