The Arkansas City School District was a school district of Arkansas City, Arkansas. Its territory is now in the McGehee School District.

The district had two schools, Arkansas City Elementary School and Arkansas City High School.[1] The athletic mascot was the river rat.[2]

The district facility was located 15 miles (24 km) east of McGehee.[3]


In 2004 the Arkansas Legislature approved a law that forced school districts with fewer than 350 students apiece to consolidate with other districts.[4] On July 1, 2004, the Arkansas City School District and the Delta Special School District were merged into the McGehee district.[5]
