Acacia Elementary School Reviews
Acacia Elementary School in Thousand Oaks has been a top-notch school for both of my children, one of whom moved from a local private school to attend. In my opinion, the teachers at Acacia are better prepared and more highly credentialed than the area private schools. They are generally enthusiastic, energetic and keenly aware of child education and development issues. Both of my children have thrived at this school. Even with the budget cuts in the last year and change of principal, this remains, in my view one of the best kept secrets in the Conejo Valley.
I have to say that i have never met a group of more dedicated teachers and staff than i encountered at Acacia Elementry. My daughter attended her 1st year in 2008/2009 and we were blessed enough to have Michelle Jones as her 3rd grade teacher, and the woman changed my daughters outlook towards school and has left footprints on both our hearts. The office staff are some of the warmest, most helpful ladies as well. We look forward to the next couple years and want to say a great big THANK You to the kind hearts who truly embrace our children and their uniqueness and individualism.
