MacArthur High School (MHS) was the third high school built in Lawton, Oklahoma. MacArthur was built and opened for the east Lawton area in 1969. In the late 1960s and early 1970s, the east Lawton area consisted of four additions or neighborhoods which were under development: Carriage Hills, Park Lane, Sullivan Village, and SunGate.

MacArthur High School was the first high school in the Lawton, Oklahoma area to provide desegregation busing for the residential subdivision of Ranch Oaks during the 1970s. The Ranch Oaks housing addition was located lateral of the Lawton municipal airport on the east side of Southwest 11th street.
