This school is one of the worst schools in the district. Most teachers don't care about their students and wont help. The principle is not helpful and she does not care about a student or their problems unless they have high grades or are athletic. She doesn't like to help students who are being threatened or bullied. There is one VP who is the same except he's sexist and does not care to help the women. He also is known to disrespect female students parents as I sat there in my 10th year as he yelled at my grandmother, who was my guardian at the time, and ignored her. There are many accounts of this happening with him and female students and their female guardians. The bullying and threats in this school are a big deal. Almost every day being there there were either fights, threats, or bullying of students. No upper authority in this school seemed to care about that. This school is not safe and I would not recommend sending your child to this school. I had to leave this school and get my G.E.D. because of how bad it was and in the 7 months of G.E.D.classes, I learned more than my 3 years that I had spent there. I'm very happy to be out of there as is most of my graduating class.

This school is one of the worst schools in the district. Fights on a daily basis. The principal disregards parents as if they are wasting her time.

I love it here! There are rarely fights and when there are, they are handled the right way. The kids there are friendly, funny, and there aren't many cliques. I would recommend it to anyone! Teachers are beyond willing to help out if you're child's willing to settle down and learn!

As a student you want to make sure your school has the goals you have so you can reach your fullest potential. This school was a very good choice for my personality and overall well being. Sure there was a few fights but they were ALL handled in the right way so no one got hurt. The teachers are there to fill your mind with knowledge that you'll actually need in life. I liked this school and would recommend it to a student willing to learn. Its not like other schools in Greece.

As a graduate, I feel that Arcadia was an excellent school to attend. Teachers will dedicate themselves as long as the students are willing to learn. They should not be held responsible for the students who cut class, that is beyond their control. It starts at home with the parents so for my children in the future, I plan on having them attend both Arcadia middle and High school. - Class of 2004

Set in a great residential area, Arcadia is a great place for students as well as families to learn and become better people. I highly recomend this school over all others in Greece.

There are a lot of drugs, and the principal does nothing to help the students, but instead suspends them for the emotional disabilities that the students may have.

this school is a mixture of great teaching but lack of disipline. The students can be found cutting class in the hallways and if you got to use the bathrooms, you are lucky if these raging students left some doors on for you. Some of the teachers take personal interest in the student and will devote plenty of their time in helping your child succeed. On the other hand, the principal rarely leaves her office and when she does, she shows no signs of authority and does not discipline the kids for their obscene behavior.
