I have two children in tis school, my son is constantly bullied and we have been from teacher to principal to counseler and nothing gets done. He is affraid to go to school and my daughter is almost in the same boat. Its to the point where i'm pressing charges against the students parents and the school if they don't stop these kids from hurting my son. All they care about if the FCAT, it's all you hear about. The school is horrible.

We have three children attending Avon Elementary. I have seen a great level of dedication by most of the staff at the school. Pam Burnham's leadership shows a commendable level of commitment to improvement, including having the flexibility to try new things to increase the school's achievement levels. There are many good teachers- some of whom are definitely shining stars in the teaching world, including the Art, Music, and Library instructors. AES has an active PTO willing to help with projects, and help fund PE and other programs at the school. One thing Avon needs to focus on is stretching the limits with its' brightest students. It does not fully participate with the HAART program in the district, and needs to support and educate its' teachers on challenging and engaging all the students in their classes, or possibly trying more grouping. I feel Avon definitely deserves their A rating!

I have three children ranging in age from 7-15 who have all been fortunate enough to attend Avon Elementary. Each of them have had their own special needs ranging from Developmentally delays to Gifted. The teachers, staff, parents and kids make the difference at this school and Avon has in fact met the needs of all my children on an individual basis. I am grateful that we have been involved with a school that really cares about its students and their education. Along with offering Art classes, Physical Education, Breakfast in the classroom (free)and many educational field trips this school emphasizes on teaching good character to help create educated, self-sufficient,caring people! If your kid gets an opportunity to go to Avon Elementary, they will definitely have a positive experience!

Avon Elem. teaches to the FCAT while other subjects such as science are being squeezed in. My daugther is under the impression that her main purpose in school is to pass FCAT, not regular grading. There is not enough physical activity during school time.
