Acacia Middle School Reviews
Okay, here we go...
I am in grade 7, age 13. This school is alright, but Dartmouth is way better. Acacia is filled with cliques and you can never fit in. I do, but everyday I see about 4 6th graders crying because they're being picked on. THe teachers see but don't do anything... It's depessing. Acacia is like a Jail. Not clean, old, teachers are rude, and too small for its capacity. Darthmouth on the other hand is a large, beautiful clean school, wonderful teachers, and everyone gets along. I am transfering to Darthmouth Middle School in Hemet, because Acacia is just one sad story.
My daughter had not known anything other than private school until this year. She has made the transition smoothly, largely because of the knowledgeable and courteous staff. She enjoys Acacia, and says the food is OK too.
I think its a wonderful school for my son, the staff there are very friendly.
