Who we are:

  • Today, we are currently serving around 900 students in grades 6-8. Our students reside both on and off post. We are an International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (IB MYP) magnet and we offer the AVID program along with many other options for our young intellectuals. MacArthur Middle School is committed to providing an excellent, rigorous, and inclusive education for all students. Our staff will provide lessons that are meaningful, encourage students to think critically, challenge assumptions, and consider both local and global contexts through culturally responsive teaching.

    As MacArthur moves through the school year, we will work on our school improvement goals: 

    1-  Increase the assigned points earned on the ESSA House MSDE Climate Survey from 3 points to 7 points.

    2- Increase math scores in both state and local assessments. 

    3- Increase language arts scores in both state and local assessments. 

     By meeting these goals, we will develop the whole child; strengthening them physically, intellectually, emotionally, ethically, and culturally.

     MacArthur Community! 
    As we continue to foster a safe and supportive environment, we are requiring students to adhere to the above listed expectations everyday.  

    Board policy 902.04 states that students cannot wear clothes to school that creates a disruptive environment or cause a health or safety hazard. Headwear is not permitted except for health, safety or religious reasons. No bare feet are permitted. Clothing, jewelry, book bags or other articles of personal appearance must not include depictions of profanity, vulgarity, obscenity, or violence; promote alcohol, tobacco or drugs; show underwear; show bare skin between the upper chest and mid-thigh. Flip-flops are also highly discouraged as they present a safety hazard and inhibit play during recess. Please realize the importance of helping to monitor what your child wears to school sponsored events on and off school property.


    All grades: 

    • Khaki colored pants, shorts, or skirts. No Leggings or Sweatpants!
    • Shoes must be closed with toes (no flip flops or slides)
    • Mesh and clear bookbags can only be carried inside the building. 
    • Fanny packs, lunch totes and purses must be stored in lockers unless they are clear.  
    • ALL coats and hoodies must be stored in lockers. 


    No class exit passes the first 10 or last 10 minutes of class. 

    Students, if you see something, say something (833-MD-B-SAFE)  If your student needs a lock for their locker, have them stop by the main office because we have plenty to give away.
