I went to MacArthur from kindergarten to fifth grade and have very fond memories of that place. Great teachers, vast library, attentive staff, welcoming atmosphere. If I could send my children to any school, the only school I'd trust to do a good job with educating my offspring is MacArthur, and then GPMS and GPHS. Keep up the good work generals!


Posted October 10, 2009

I'm a teacher at MacArthur and I can honestly say that we're a very close team who truly cares about our students. We work and plan everything in the best interest of our students. We have been exemplary for three straight years now, which goes to show our dedication and desire to see our kids succeed. Go Generals!!
