Our school was very average compared to others. We sometimes didn't have the resources that every other school had in our district as well as in other districts. There are some dedicated staff that cared about the students, such as my counselor, and some teachers who weren't like the others.

I experienced many things at ACE when I first start school I was Ell student. Which I use to don't know how to speak English but by getting help from the teacher's and students at ACE I improved a lot, I become myself to help another new students who doesn't speak English, And that knows my language. What I want to change is to have more elative classes so that it may help incoming ell student's
This school does not have the best reputation, but we still have staff that are willing to help people. The few teachers i see go out of their way to help every student they can, and that is great. But most of them are just here teaching, collecting their checks. A lot of the staff this year are new, so i could say they don't exactly know how to handle the kids who get too rowdy. Their ways of teaching are more simple than saying they know what they're doing. Because of how new they are, they try to be more strict and get students to pay more attention. The teachers who aren't new can easily deal with students, disruptive or not. Grading is almost never consistent with most teachers. I only know of a couple who grade consistently. Other than that, a lot of the teachers have good personalities.
