I am a graduate of this school...class of 1974. During the years I spent there, I found the teachers and staff to be very dedicated and willing to go the extra mile to ensure a student's success. I feel that I received a very competitive education there...the only thing that hindered me was myself. I remember my years there fondly. I am amazed by the growth and improvement in the facility...and just a touch jealous that I missed some of the improvements.
This school is amazing..the disclipline is very good as well they dont let the kids run wild like other public schools.
I very much enjoy attending this school on a daily basis. The work load is not super hard but it challenges me just enough. The teachers are very nice and extremely helpful when it comes to the work. If there is ever a time when you do not understand something, there are multiple oportunities to recieve extra help. They have many extracuricular activites to get students involved. The school spirit is awesome and unlike any other school in the area.
I have a child in Avondale high and Graham elementary and the work that they give these kids is outrageous, they think these kids are in college already, the work makes these kids struggle, it's not fare to them we did not have this type of work growing up in school, i will say if you are thinking about your kids attending don't it will be the worst mistake ever, i fill like i force my kids in this school district.
Some teacher are very mean and some are not. the give out to much homework week days and weekends
We have several children in the Avondale school district - this is our 12th year. Our senior was 'falling through the cracks' and behind UNTIL she got to AHS. *Phenomenal* teacher involvement has helped turned our student into a college bound senior, who is active in several groups. Our teens enjoy high school - especially the staff. Teachers truly, truly care and know our children as individuals, and go the extra mile to help them succeed. The classes are cold and few have windows. Student dress code could be a bit more professional (pants hanging down is not conducive to an academic environment.) LOVE the academic centers where kids can catch up on missing assignments and get tutoring daily, if/when needed. Staff is just - impressive.
I teach at Avondale and I find the students, staff and parents to be wonderful and caring people. This is an amazing place to be!
All three of my children went to Avondale HS. However since my youngest graduated in 2005 the quality of Avondale has gone down hill. If your child has special needs run! Go to Bloomfield. My child fell further back in her studies in Hs then she has even in her whole life. She did not get the help she needed! She is in college now and getting honors!
If your child has special needs, please do your child and favor and send them else where. Both of my children with special needs did not get the help they needed. They were babied all though High school, when both of my children graduated, they had very weak skills to go into the adult world. I feel like I have failed my children
I have 2 children at the HS and 1 at the MS. Avondale is an excellent district with caring teachers and administrators who make a difference. My children are getting a excellent education.
I am a freshman at Avondale High School and I have to say that ever since day one the teachers here and students have been nothing but nice! It's a nice feeling to wake up and look forward to school!
