My children when K through 12, and while they were not but average students, the skills and pedigree that they earned here helped them immensely in college and beyond. This is a weighted school, and for good reason. In this and every other aspect of life, you get what you put into it.

Fantastic academics - however the price is student stress and sky-high suicide rates.

Both my children attended the Acton public schools.. While the elementary schools and junior high school are excellent, the high school is extremely limited. It is a push is for high SAT scores, that is it. If your child is bright, creative and a gifted child in other arenas, watch out. There is no support or understanding. In fact, he or she might sink to lower levels because of this lack of knowledge. Teaching rote from books is not education, but an assembly line. After all the hype about the school system, as a parent of two, I was extremely disappointed.

I graduated from ABRHS about a decade ago. While the learning atmosphere is excellent and the school really prepares you well for college, some of the teachers and faculty members can be pretty obnoxious and unfair. I was accused of cheating at one point, and there really wasn't any evidence to prove that I had cheated. But because my test result was much better than previous tests, the teacher was incredibly stubborn and determined that I be the scapegoat and make an example of other students he suspected were cheating. Even when I got retested at my request (I was given a different test), and though my score was not exact, it was quite close, he still decidedly gave me a zero. What appalls me is that even the principal and the dept head went along with him.Here I was, a student whose English was second language with foreign parents without much experience in US education systems, they did not really care at all and bother to intervene because the teacher was known to be tough on students, graduate of Harvard and was very stubborn.I hope many faculty members got replaced. And I would never send my daughter to ABRHS just for that - there are other schools in the area of similar if not higher calibre.

This district is facing some very serious capital needs and budget issues. I'm very concerned about my taxes and the quality of the district declining.
