I have been attending McArthur High school for about almost 3 years now and I have enjoyed every step of the way so far! Of course there have been some rough patches and bumps along the way but no school is a perfect one. During those tough times, I struggled with my math class. Through all the tears and stress, the teachers reached out and lent me a helping hand every time. My school offers a free after school program to the students. In this program the teachers stay after school and use up their own free time to help the students who need extra help. Everyday i'd have a teacher with me helping me with my homework, answering my questions, and explaining things to me I didn't understand. This school has really made my high school experience enjoyable and I wouldn't ever trade my experience here for anything else!

Hello, my name is Nytheria Saint-Fluer and I'm currently a student at McArthur High School. I've attended McArthur High for 4 years. I’m currently a senior and I’m now approaching graduation. One of my biggest accomplishments have been adapting to change, soaring in my leadership and professionalism skills. I was able to appease to all my teachers and show them my willingness to learn at any given time. High school was not perfect but in all fairness the experience was well worth it. I've endured my breakdowns, yet I still soared for greatness. I was able to transition all my let downs into rising back up at all times. My positivity is what led me to be who I’am today. With the help of my family, teachers along with administrators. If there would be anything I would change it would be to have more outreaches and school involvements to inherit more school spirit. As a result, I’m still a proud Mustang and even more honored to be graduating from McArthur High School.
What I like about McArthur High School is the staff and the diversity. One of the many staff members that I like with all my heart is Ms. Merchant. She is an amazing teacher who knows how to have fun. Thanks to her I scored a 4 on my History EOC! Another staff member who I like with all of my heart is Mr. Pugh. He is the coolest security guard at our school and he's the best person to talk to when you need to let it all out. What I would like to see change at McArthur High School is the variety of sports that we offer.
