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.
Many of the people who graduated in the Class of 2014 have found very nice schools to attend. A lot of my friends are going to diverse colleges all around the world from Buffalo to California and even Vermont or Canada. During our senior we got to experience the real world when we began applying for jobs and different colleges while trying to maintain a good GPA and still have fun. We learned how to pay bills and even to have more responsibilities around the house, school and community. I am excited to say that the Class of 2014 has had the most graduates within the last ten years of graduating classes and that with the constant help of the ten students that went to college summit (including myself) all of the graduates were leaving with a resume and at least one scholarship. Many students are going to their dream school and though some of to pay back loans when they are done, we have faith that it was all worth it.
