Our child goes to Macarthur school and we love it !!!! Our child is a special needs child and since our chid has been going to macarthur he actually is learning. when our child was in just regular special eduction it was not meetng his own educational needs, special needs children need more than just a clasroom with a teacher in it, they need a teacher who cares and is compassionate and loves what they for our children. At macarthur that iswhat my child recieves, and so will yours. My childs teacher is phenominal she gives 110% to her kids in her class and everyone else gives just the same. Thank You to everyone at Macarthur school teachers & staff i can't express enough to everyone's dedication !!!!!!!
