    "I am incredibly disappointed with the quality of education my children are receiving at Arcohe. We moved into the district from another nearby one-school school district. The thinking was that the experience at Arcohe would be very similar to that at Oak View. Not even close!!! I can't put my finger on exactly what the issue(s) is/are, but all I know is that Arcohe doesn't seem like the place it was when I attended 20 years ago. The teachers gripe about the administration and the Board, the parents gripe about the teachers, administration and Board, and nothing ever seems to improve. At least the test scores had improved 2 years ago. That gave us all a glimmer of hope. Now that they've gone back down (especially when our old school's scores just keep improving year after year - or at least remaining relatively constant), it just brings out the same old negative feelings on the part of the parents. It's time for the Board to stop micro-managing and it's time for the professional educators to educate without worrying about who is breathing down their necks. I sure miss Oak View!"

    "I believe that Arcohe staff is trying but... The problem is with the school board members and their inability to make smart business decisions. They are not "business minded and have made some bad decisions for the school. They base their decisions on their friendships and they look out for each other. If you go against them or challenge them on a business matter, they will leave the board room and make sure that everyone knows how wrong they think you are and why you should be ignored by their "circle of friends". Instead why don't they show everyone why they think they made the correct decision and standing up for themselves with the facts? It feels like they are still in their high school years. It's sad that they make new comers feel so uncomfortable to speak up. If you are looking for a small town atmosphere in a good community then this is the place. Just try to ignore the adult clicks that we teach our children are not appropriate."

    "The state testing scores are going up. The anti-bullying program is in its second year. The theories from a popular philosophy, "Love and "Logic" are encouraged. Math night and Art night were a success this year. The real bullying I witness daily at Arcohe is against the teachers coming from several, but not all, parents. Squeaky gears get grease, I guess. The school is not experiencing success IN SPITE of the teachers, but in part, because of the teachers. Supportive parents help, and they are appreciated. Teachers are currently experiencing defamation and character and career assassination via Facebook (specifically). Part of life and the school experience is learning to respectfully deal with people who are different than you. I had several teachers I didn't "like". My parents may not have "liked" them either, but they didn't bash them at the time in front of me. Now, I am able to work with and among people I don't necessarily "like", but you'd never know it--because I have learned some measure of grace. There is an issue at work here that is more based on entitlement than this specific school. Please DO check this school out, & when you review it online, use spell-check!"

    "I believe Arcohe is headed back to the way it used to be. That is when the school was the desired school to be attending. The staff is working hard at improving all aspects in the school. There have been many positive changes in the last year or two.One of which is the improved STAR test scores. The other is the Falcon feather awards. The school is going to be implementing another program. This program will be a great positive for the students and staff. I have had 2 children attend Arcohe grades K-8. I now have 2 more attending. I feel the changes we are seeing now are good ones and I am glad to have a school that is getting better.."

    "THE FACTS are.......Arcohe School, like many other schools, has seen it's ups and downs. TODAY the school has a strong administration that's working hard to lead the incredibly devoted staff and diverse student population to excellence. Last year, despite budget cuts, Arcohe students reached a score of 800 on state tests, just proving how well the students, staff, and parents are working together to improve this little school. I wish more of the people rating this school would get involved and help instead of just complaining and switching schools. This school has incredible potential. I LOVE ARCOHE SCHOOL!!!!!!"
