Our goal at McArthur School is to provide a safe, warm and encouraging environment to learn in. The student is viewed as an agent or initiator of his/her own learning. When learning is initiated by the student, he/she takes charge of that learning. When experiences are meaningful, learning will occur. Interest is a powerful and driving force of learning.
The school, in partnership with parents/guardians, help foster the growth of children into whole, healthy individuals who can contribute positively to their community. Each child is given the opportunity to develop intellectually, emotionally, socially and physically, and to realize his/her full potential.
With the strong support we receive from Parents Council, McArthur is technologically very well equipped. There are Smart Boards with Cameras and FM systems in every classroom as well as Chrome Books for every student.
At McArthur School, Character Building counts and we are very proud of our Super Citizen Program or as we call it the Super C . The Super C program consists of 12 core values students are expected to practice at all times in the classroom, in the hallways, in the gym and in the school yard.
Super Citizens are recognized in our monthly assemblies for their leadership and for being positive role models in the school.
At McArthur School, students build strong foundations that will serve them well in Junior High, High School and beyond.
