Isn't it better to keep community schools smaller? This keeps the school what it should be...a community, a family of sorts. Combining two or three schools into one location will not only cause undo stress and anxiety to our young students, but it will take away that sense of family that Arcadia school has. The office staff, teachers, aides, kitchen staff, and custodians are some of the most caring, greatest staff I have ever seen in a school setting. They seem like family, not principal's, teachers, helpers, cooks, cleaners, and secretary (Can't forget Joy. We Love You). Having my children in this school gives me a sense of security, and worry free days, knowing they will come home happy and be eager for the next day to go back. So the gym is not up to par, but many boys and girls have gone through this school and never once have I heard comments about not having an upgraded gym. What I have heard is how they enjoyed their time there, how teachers have helped make their days, weeks, and years better, and being happy with the extra outside activities that could happen due to NOT having a "big" gym, and having access to the trail. A larger school also usually means larger classes, more bullying, more conflicts, more trouble. Take a walk through the halls and see for yourselves (Please get permission from admin first). Trust me, you won't be disappointed at what you see. Way to go, Arcadia. You Rock!
