Avondale High School 1

Posted November 03, 2015

I am currently a (boy) senior enrolled at avondale high school. I can say that the administration does not care about its students at all. The teachers do put in a lot of effort trying to help the kids out and motivation is openly explored when in one of the classes. Most of our money is dumped into football. So if you play another sport other than football good luck getting any, support to buy new equipment without having to raise most/ or all of it yourself. Bathrooms are also not maintained as we have every bathroom but the teachers and front (where everyone can see and go into) are disgusting. The doors are not installed. I.E. you will have to have a friend keep a look out for other kids needing to use the toliet as well. Every year the priciple has been promoted leaving us with a substitute that has no idea what they are doing. Making activities and dances a literal nightmare and not fun.(we had 150 out of 1200 kids attend our dances) I personally feel bad for the teachers that are scared and are afraid of being fired because of the horrible administration. If avondale can somehow check up on its higher ups then in my opinion the school would be a place that I would recommend to anyone that needs to graduate from high school.

I want to thank all of the teachers that put up with those students in our school that make your job so friken hard. You kept with it even if you left because no student would respect you ( looking at you Mr. Krell ) even if the kids you had were horrible you came in everyday and tried to motivate them and try to encourage them to do there best.

From the teachers pov I would say that it is great. But from any other administration you will find nothing even remotely close to respect from staff or administration.

With solid, true, and dedicated leadership in the administration, they would be unstoppable! We have found that most are truly dedicated to their craft.

We have not had an issue with the teaching staff at all other than having to wait a few weeks to see grades and assignments updated on the parent portal.

No! Too much of a disconnect that even our child saids why bother! If anything is said all you get is into trouble...

No...students are either disciplined by the administration or left to deal with issues on their own!

The current administration is only concerned with maintaining some kind of order. If you are a student that has any type of concern, issue, disagreement, or your having difficulty fitting in or getting along with a group of others, there is no compassion and no one to help you work through them. It is truly sad to say...there is a HUGE disconnect with the student body and the current administration.

If you don't act like a normal high school student with the usual craziness that goes on from time to time. If you are never talked to or dealt with and just go about your day all to yourself maybe...
