    This school is amazing! My daughter has taken interest in her school work and the teachers are respectful and make the subjects worth learning. The school has amazing sports to be played at any level and the student body is just a great group of children. My nephew has had trouble getting help in the past from other schools regarding his learning abilities and this school has really jumped in and assisted my sister in getting him the help he really needs to excel at his level so that he is not always left behind.

    My daughter goes to ACMS and loves it. I love it.. it's a great school. the teachers have helped her excel greatly! She is doing better than ever before. They've helped her in the areas she really needs it. They were able to recognize her weak areas and get her the help she needed as well as promote her in the areas of strength. I recommend this school to any parent looking to send their child to a school in Antelope send them here!

    This is the worst school my kids have ever attended. My son went here for 6th-8th grades and we had so many problems mainly with a certain assistant principal. My daughter went here for 6th 7th and the beginning of 8th grade. We pulled her out after 8th grade started because certain teachers were violating student confidentiality and discussing my daughter with other parents. I talked to the principal several times and did not feel the issue was resolved.

    Whoever is planning to have their child here in Antelope then send your kiddos here! The atmosphere is wonderful the staff members are kind too. The teachers help you immediately if you need help and they also have a class called a exploratory class for fun as in life skills (cooking) tech band support reading classes or extra help on math. Even though middle school may be challenging but heck the staff help you!( I'm not afraid to say my name I'm a 7th grader.

    I absolutely love this school. It is a California Distinguished school after all! ONe day I'm hoping to send my own kids off to ACMS!

    I've worked in three different elementary schools two different middle schools and a community college and Antelope Crossing is my all-time favorite place to work. The atmosphere is warm safe friendly professional and yet fun. The kids are an amazing mix of all ethnic and socioeconomic groups and prove that such a mix can work to add to a learning environment. It is truly a place that promotes tolerance cooperation and achievement in academics sports and more. All of the people that I work with enjoy working with one another set the highest standards for themselves and eachother and enjoy our jobs. It is no wonder that this school has won the Distinguished School Award an award for excellence in counseling (statewide) and award for having the best P.E programs in Northern California and too many more to mention. I feel lucky and proud.

    the teachers are mean and they give way to much homework

    We have not had a very positive experience at Antelope Crossing. We bought our home in this school district just so our children could attend this school. Other than Band .. it has been a huge disappointment. Our child has been harassed & hit during one of his classes. We've gone to the Principal Counselor and his Teachers. What We've been told ... kids can be really mean at his age they will grow out of it. All children should be taught to be respectful of their teachers and their fellow classmates and if they are not .. there should be consequences. And trust me unless you have proof and witnesses of the actual moment that it happens nothing will be done. It is sad.

    This school is great! Who couldn't love it? I get newsletters every week My daughter is in a wonderful program called AVID I believe And the clubs are excellent. Shes been pretty involved for all three years. I love the way the teachers call you just to tell you how great your child's doing in class. This school is great I would never send my daughter anywhere else!

    Since the new principle has started I have done a complete turn around on my opinion of this school. My first child had a terrible experience however after the new principle came on board so many changes were made and he is so involved in what is going on. My second child has had a wonderful experiance at this school. The teachers with the exception of one or two are wonderfull...always have been. Very involved very in tune with the kids very eager to go the extra mile to benefit the kids. Parent involvement is high although it is the same parents over and over. The band program is awesome...in huge part to Mrs. Slabaugh. There are many extra curricular activites available. This school went from a zero to a nine.

    We moved from another nearby district last year and my child has improved so much since he has been at this school. His grades are up he has a great attitude and actually talks about what he has learned during the day. I would like to give this school a great big thank you for doing such a great job!
