Academically, Arcadia High School is the best in Accomack County. The teachers, all of mine were great, prepare you for your future even though teaching is based on SOLs that not one college I applied to looked at or even asked about my scores. Parent involvement at the school is not very high so clubs and sport teams do not get much assistance in way of help with fundraisers so therefore the clubs and teams are unable to raise huge amounts of money. Overall the four years I spent here were good ones.

Overall I think the students and teachers are very accepting of everyone. There are of course some personality conflicts and occasional fights will result but they are quickly ended by faculty.

I do not consider myself in with the popular crowd but never had an issue with any of them either. We just have different interest. I hang out with a small crowd which actually is a very diverse group. Since this is a rather small community and a very diverse community at that, we have all grown up together and learned to just love everyone without seeing someone's race as an issue.
We have a good academic program designed for kids interested in college but if you are not really sure what you want to do it becomes a problem. I am interested in college but also wanted to take some computer classes. Taking one of the badger computer classes messed up my Honors English that I had taken Freshman and Sophomore year. When I signed up for computer, the class was only offered at the same time so I had to take a regular English class so I was unable to take the college English I had planned on for senior year. It is just very hard for a student to take a variety of classes when unsure of their interest. Strictly set up for academics, business or just general studies and hard to get a variety of each.
