My favorite teachers are Mr. Alexander, Ms. Pigford, Mr. Nozil and Mr. Buford. They are the only teachers at Acorn Community High School that takes their jobs seriously and treats us like their kids. It was an honor getting to know these teachers because they opened my eyes to what the world really is like. Thank you and if you're willing to attend Acorn Community High School please look out for these teachers because they need all the recognition possible.

This school helped me to get into college and chase my dreams of becoming and architect the teachers in this school are very motivational speakers and they work hard to make sure each student has achieved his or her personal goal. This school is in very need of a gym for sport for the following students there now.
No sports or clubs for students to engage in except debate and soccer. Teaching style is okay especially the math classes the teacher are willing to help students to understand materials. but as for the other subjects the teaching style is horrible. the principal is never around. i don't recommend.
