We are excited for updates to the front of our school, the front office, and the outdoor classroom area. Thanks to Measure I and CVUSD funding, we are getting a facelift for our grand re-opening as a new CVUSD Magnet School of Choice - Acacia Magnet School for Enriched Learning! We appreciate your patience with our mess. 

9/7/18 UPDATE -  The digital marquee is up and will be running soon! The fencing in front of Rooms 1/2 was taken down last week. It's all looking great!

PLEASE CONTINUE TO STAY OFF THE NEW GRASS!! It needs time to grow. We are still using the MPR as a main entrance to school while we have temporary fencing still up. Our new flagpole is coming soon. These are wonderful new enhancements, and we thank you for looking past the dust and construction as we begin the school year. We will have a GRAND OPENING CELEBRATION in the fall...stay tuned!

Schoolwide Enrichment Model (SEM) School

At Acacia, we believe in the strengths, passions, talents, and interests of our students, and we strive for joyful learning. We implement an approach called Schoolwide Enrichment Model (SEM) that is grounded in over 40 years of research and practice. It stems from best practices in Gifted and Talented Education and brings a student-driven focus to high level learning for all students. We believe that gifted education is not who you are, but rather what you do. Through the 3 E's of ENJOYMENT, ENTHUSIASM, and ENGAGEMENT we aim to cultivate self-directed learners  who pursue their passions and create a successful future!
