Acorn is a very small school, which I like. In the high school, everybody knows everybody. You are very much like a family there. You are personal with the teachers and get plenty of help when needed. They have very good athletic programs, and many clubs for anybody who is not a fan of athletics. But for the people who do love sports, they have a good fan base that makes it that much more enjoyable. When it comes to college, we have teachers on hand to help know what we need to know. They help with scholarships and make sure to let us know what is going on. If there was anything I would like to change, it would be food. I am an athlete at the school and never really feel like I get enough. When I do I always feel tired because it is high in carbs. So the one thing I would change would be more nutritious food that is filling without over or under doing what they give us.

I have gone to Acorn High School all my life. This year is my thirteenth year and I wouldn't have wanted to go anywhere else. My school is pretty small, but with that comes many opportunities. Some advantages I have encountered are more one on one time with teachers, smaller classes, being familiar with everyone in the high school and knowing their names and personalities. Acorn has changed, yet is has kept its homey feel. In the past couple years we have added, improved, and renovated our campus. There is not much I hope to see changing at Acorn High in the next couple of years other than keeping the campus alive and thriving. I hope to someday introduce my children to the front doors of the vibrant Acorn School.
Great community of students and staff! Great learning environment. The selection of classes is great. Having the option for taking college classes has helped me a lot.
