8/28/14 > MacArthur Student Leadership Camp

100 MacArthur Student Leaders attended Leadership camp over the summer in order to achieve the skills necessary to have a successful school year. The 3 day camp provided our students with the knowledge and tools to become more effective leaders in our school. The camp also focused on the importance of school cohesion and unity, providing an opportunity for students to work together towards common goals. The camp ended with teambuilding at a ropes course.

MacArthur High School was recently named to The Daily Beast's 2014 list of top high schools. Six indicators pulled from school surveys were used to compare public high schools in the U.S., with graduation and college acceptance rates weighed most heavily. Other criteria included college-level courses and exams, percentage of students with free or reduced lunch, as well as SAT and ACT scores - another mark of how well a school prepares students for college.

In addition, MacArthur High School was named to the Top 100 list for schools with a high percentage of graduate students from the free and reduced lunch program.
