This school is the worst ! I'm a actual student going into my senior year & staff and teachers doesn't want you too progress in school, they let you do whatever you want no discipline corporates at all. The principal stays in her office 24/7 and never is there when you need even the guidance counselor. I hate this school. Please don't send your kids here! If you look at the graduation rate it is very very low so that should tell you alot. If I knew what I knew then about this school and had a earlier transfer I would've but it was already too late. School is infested with "ghetto kids" and bugs everywhere . There are fights almost every week and a lot of kids get bullied, the punishment is never harsh kids will return to school within five days or less. This school is very unfair. Board of Ed should really take a look into this school and and shut it down.

I am an actual student unsupervised by any teachers. so i can tell you the truth about the school. The good: You can do well if you work hard, supportive staff, after school tutoring provided, and community service help available. The bad: the school used to be a factory and is very old, a lot of "ghetto" kids, lack of athletic programs, and overly crowded staircases and hallways that may make you late. Summary: The school is pretty good but just make sure that you associate yourself with the right people and take work seriously.

This school has a lot of activities that are fun. Students can give ideas to the activites and help think of different fund raisers to be able to have the activities. Acorn has great teachers that can help students inside and outside of class.

i think this is the best school because it is a place where kids can get a good education and feel at home at the same time because of the way that the staff and the students treat eachother.

I love coming to Acorn because it a school that is incredibly caring and friendly. I always feel comfortable in Acorn, and I love how the teachers act like good friends. Your never left out of anything in schools and they always have fun afterschool activities. There should never be a problem because the teachers help you get your work done, and always help you to correct a problem. Acorn is also a college driven school, they always push me toward college, whether i want to or not. But they made me want to, because they halped me out tremendously. Acorn is a great school to prepare a student for college, and every student should go here.

Can you say lacking academic rigor? My son is a freshman at Acorn Community and rarely is he asigned homework. I have talked to the teachers and administrators about it and this just doesn't seem to be a priority. In addition, my child in elementary school, taking similar classes, receives more chanllenging work then my son in high school!
