Classes are slow, kids are snobby, and the curriculum caters to children who are falling behind, leaving smart and advanced kids bored the entire year. Can't wait for High School.
Although this school has a good reputation, the reputation it has earned is nonetheless false. As a student, I am not proud to say that this school has large class sizes and biased teachers that make learning hard. The teacher's tend to pick favorites, and the students here are snobby. There are many popular people who tease you. The educational equipment is either broken, or faulty.
This school, while offering a fine education, seems to cater more to the needs of its most brilliant students or students with special needs on IEP's while everyone else is pretty much ignored. My son, a highly capable student who receives above average to superior grades is getting lost in the shuffle and not being stimulated.
this school has great teachers and allows you to make new friends. I love it!
My daughter went there last year.The school seperated her from all her elementary school friends and grouped her with the other children of our 'ethnicity. While Acton Elementary schools discourage and infact teach against such stereo typing, the Junior high uses outdated biases to divide the classrooms.
This is an interesting school to go to because it combines kids who have never met each other from the six elementary schools in this community. All those school emphasize very different parts of the curriculum, they are not assigned regionally so it's cool to meet other kids that live in Acton that have a completely different backround than you. Nice building, awesome teachers, but extracurriculars are too lax compared to other schools. Can's wait for ABRHS.
