McArthur is located in a mature community composed of single family dwellings surrounded by large areas of high density housing. There is a very active community league and there is strong support on the part of the parents and community for the school. The community continues to renew with younger families. The McArthur Advisory Council (MAC) is very active in our school and participation by parents/community in various school activities is always welcome. The McArthur Advisory Council (MAC) financially supports field trips, technology and in-school presentations.
