    "Do not send your child to this school! The 2014-15 Principal, Mrs. Page uses a punitive philosophy (think "Breakfast Club") that creates "problem" students instead of inspiring students to reach their potential. I've been surprised by the lack of leadership and understanding of the students in her care. The 1/2 star rating is for the caring and capable teachers who have to work in a system that is broken. This school did not prepare my eldest child for high school and has impacted my youngest child's self-esteem. The opposite should be happening for the high school taxes we pay. It breaks my heart as a former teacher that students aren't seen, they are test scores, parents aren't partners they are potential law-suits and good teachers can't teach in the current climate. Great minds are being thrown away here. Spend your money on another school option. I regret that I sent my kids here and now they aren't prepared to go elsewhere. My kids went backward instead of forward within the two years that they attended Arcola."

    "We recently moved to the Methacton School District. Believe me this district surpasses the previous school district. The teachers are fantasic. My child is getting a great education. Plenty of great students. Many opportunities. To the writer of the review posted of 7/16/07, most school districts do not have extra curricullar activities for 6th grade."

    "Plenty of involvement opportunities for kids with sports, music, drama, clubs, etc. Plenty of opportunities for parents to be involved if they want to. Positive attitude throughout the school starting with the adminstration and all teachers and staff. Safe, happy kids who are leaning, too! What more can you ask?"

    "Arcola is TOP of the line. Most kids you know probably hate school but theres no reason to in Arcola. They have great sports like lacrosse and soccer. You can learn to play unique instruments unlike most schools. In chorus and band you get to go to dorney park in 6th and 7th grade but in 8th grade you go to hershey. its great.Their art program is great too."

    "Arcola Intermediate School is awesome, with all-around great staff and teachers. Kids learn a variety of things, from wood-shop to playing guitar. Some specific staff and teachers can be strict or embarrass you at times, but the kind, fun teachers make up for it. The lunch choices are great, offering healthy snacks and drinks. Students also immensely enjoy the ice cream machine! The school offers lots of clubs and curricular activities including sports, cooking, reading, drama, and even animals. You won't find a better school for your children!"
