The mission of Arthur Public School, a friendly rural JK – 8 School, is to challenge our students to pursue excellence and attain a love of learning through a quality learning environment.
Arthur Public School is a JK to grade 8 school that serves the town of Arthur and surrounding area, joined by students from Keniworth in grade 7. Our new school site was officially opened in the Fall of 2006. We have recently undergone construction and have added a purpose built Kindergarten classroom and an additional classroom.
Arthur Public School is proud to be an environmentally conscious facility with a focus on environmental stewardship. We are an ECO Gold medal school, and Green Legacy Gold Medal School, and an Earth School – level 2. We have ongoing activities within the school to ensure we are as “green” as possible. Our spectacular school grounds include a tree nursery, and outdoor classroom, and a Forest of Reading garden.
Arthur Public School is an Everyday Learning Kindergarten School. We have three classes of Everyday Kindergarten and are very proud to offer this opportunity to our youngest students.
At Arthur Public School we value:
Attitude – Demonstrate a positive attitude every day.
Respect – Show respect for individuals and school property.
Trust – Do what you say you’ll do. Be reliable.
Helpfulness – Do your best to help others.
U(You) – Be the best you can be.
Responsibility – Be responsible for your actions.

We invite parents to become actively involved in our school and to maintain close communication with staff as partners in the educational process.
We look forward to the opportunities that the school year will offer.
