This is the worst school in douglas county. The teachers are only worried about staying on agenda rather than teaching kids the proper way to learn something. They expect the parents to teach the course from home, and don't bother talking to the principal she is the worst of all. She will turn her back on you and hope you forget about it. Please look for other options for your child.

The teachers are okay, but they do little to control the poorly disciplined students. Several incidents we witnessed but the worst was a student who assaulted a teacher that was allowed to stay. The worst part was our child was a witness and the principal allowed the student to sit with her and our child while trying to smooth things over without our knowledge. Worst administrator in any school in the area. After dealing with poor admins and average teachers, we changed schools. Regret not having done it sooner. Avoid this school for your kiddos sake.

This school is a hidden treasure. We are so pleased with the quality, dedication and character of everyone there. Our son is doing so well due to the incredible resources, talents and team work of the well-run staff that Gina Smith has in place. Having experienced the private school scene for many years, this public school has a lot to be proud of. You can see that the community appreciates what this school is doing by the excellent parent involvement in fundraising, PTO, special events, extra curriculars, etc.

Acres Green is such a great school. Gina Smith is a fantastic leader who truly cares about her staff and our children. I have children in both the Discovery Program as well as the typical school so we get to see all sides of Acres Green. Like any other school, some teachers will click well with your child's personality and some will not. I feel as tough the education that my children have received have exceeded expectations and I'm confident that choosing Acres Green as our school was the right decision. Do not look at the number rating on this website.....it does not show the true character of this school. Go in and see for yourself! You will fall in love!

Acres Green Sucks. Not well organized. A bunch of nonsense people. One of the worst school in the area.

I think this is a great school with proper class sizes. My daughter gets along well with all the teachers, staff and other students. I feel that the school addresses issues promptly and appropriately. My daughter especially loves that she can walk or ride her bike to school. They also have an amazing after school and summer program. This is our 3rd school in the district and my favorite by far.

My child spent 1 year in the regular program and 1 year in the Discovery program at Acres Green. Our experience has been great with the staff and hit-or-miss with the teachers. As with any school, the teacher changes from year to year can make a lot of difference. In our case, one was great and one was just ok. What has remained constant for us is that we love the administration! We have had nothing but good experiences with the office staff, principal and vice principal and even the specials teachers. We will continue to choose to send our children to Acres Green.

This school is full of bullies. My kid went through h**l for 3 years and his teachers never seemed to care. It only stopped when I talked to the principle. She is such a great person but her staff seems not caring at all for the kids both academically and emotionally. I am so sad to say this but this school has declined sooo much and it is shown on it's rating among Co. schools.

I agree this school has declined in the past a couple of years in all aspects, including the Discovery Program. From the experience we have with the school, I think the school administration has a lot to do with this change. They are not responsible or professional when they handle school issues with the students. It seems as if they are not fully putting in their effort to provide a good learning environment as well.

If I was writing this 4 years ago I would have rated 5 stars. This school has rapidly declined in the past couple of years. If your child qualifies for the Discovery Program then you probably won't have complaints however if your child is not in the DP then it's different. The staff is very nice however too many struggling kids, lack of help and in the past year or so too many bullies. I wish this school becomes the school it use to be.

My two children just started this year at Acres Green and are in the Discovery Program and we are so pleased with the whole school in general. What a true educational experience! The teachers and administration work continuously to provide the best learning environment for the children of Acres Green. What a true community and what a great group of parents to volunteer with. Thank you!

Congratulations Acres Green Elementary on earning an EXCELLENT rating 2 years in a row! This school has so many programs to meet the diverse needs of its students, including a Gifted and Talented program, making it possible for every student to get a truly great educational experience. But the heart and soul of this school are its teachers and administration who work continuously to provide the best learning environment possible, and the parental involvement that supports this incredible staff. The proof is not only in the test scores but the smiling faces on the playground.

If you invest the time to research this school's history and it's current performance, under a tenured staff and administration, it has received the 2007-08 John Irwin School of Excellence Award. The school offers Gifted and Talented programs, as well as , special needs staff & services (including a new to be installed elevator) and door button on the front entrance for those that require them. Any incapabilities would not be a local school issue but a matter to address with the School District. The school Staff & Administration are one of the most capable and progressive teams in the district in supporting the educational needs of its students. This school is leading edge with integrating technology to circulum in delivering 21st century education at the elementary grade level.

If your child requires any services aside from normal regular education this is not the school for you. This school is incapable of providing children with services legally required by federal law.

Your child and their learning is number one here. The staff and administration care about every student. It shows in how they help the kids walk safely into the school, the smiles that greet the children and the creative ways they use to teach every child. I am so thankful my kids can attend this wonderful school.

This is the up and coming school of the area. The principal is direct and honest and has the best interests of the kids always at the forefront of any decision. The teachers are energetic and creative and keep the children excited about learning. They also have a fabulous new technology teacher. I feel so fortunate to have my kids attend this school.

This school has a new principal who is awesome. She is really turning things around. We hope to see test scores go up. My child is doing great in this school and has had great teachers. The before/after (intersession) child care program is also very good.
