Avalon is a great school with knowledgable caring teachers, support staff and leaders. They are student and family centered and truly focused on the well being of each and every child in their care. Every program and staff member Avalon has is spectacular. Go panthers!
Avalon has been a great fit for my daughter and I've read that there were problems in the past but they must have worked through them because my daughter is black and it hasnt been one problem other then normal kid stuff. They do alot to make your child feel accomplish and comfortable. The PTA has been excellent in search for "all" sorts of parents and opinion. I love avalon!!!!!!! GO PANTHERS
Thank goodness for Avalon Elementary School! The staff goes above and beyond to meet the needs of all students. It is a friendly, warm, caring school with a rigorous academic environment! There is no better place for children to learn and grow socially, emotionally and academically! Thank you, Avalon!
As a parent, I am so appreciative of all of the monthly family events at Avalon. It is such a family centered school where parents can be as involved as they want/can be, and for those who have a lot on their plate, there is no guilt if we cannot be as involved as we may want to be. The staff is knowledgeable and helpful and definately goes the extra mile for student success!
I transfered my child out of Avalon to another school and what a difference! He just finished his first day and was so excited about his new teacher and classmates. The teachers and parents were so friendly and helpful not at all what I encountered at Avalon last year. Talented, dedicated teachers have a huge impact on a child's success. Avalon needs to do some house-cleaning!
A wonderful school. Great teachers, staff and parents. Its obvious that most of the ratings listed on this site are those of opposers and not supporters of this fabulous school. I will make a plea at our next PTO meeting to have parents who love this school, and there are many of us, speak favorably on Avalon's behalf. Go Panthers! :)
I have transfered my child out of this school. I asked for the simpliest things from the staff, and was never given what I asked for pertaining to my son. I would not recommend this school to anyone. Beware of the lack of urgency regarding young children's future.
This school has been great for my children. Mrs Boehm is a wonderful Principal that cares about her Avalon families. The staff has been great throughout the years. I highly recommend enrolling your children.
The above quotation is so unbelievably untruse it makes me sick to think that someone would post that. The truth is that while Avalon Elementary is located in St. Clair Shores, a predominatly white suburb, the school promotes diversity in the classroom every day. I am white, my children are white, however, my nephew is both white and black. He has never had a race issue, as a matter of fact the only race issue I have observed was an incident where my son, who is white, was told that white people are not cool, and that he wasn't cool enough to hang out with the black kids.. he came home upset, but was back to playing with his friend the next day. Children find reasons to make fun.. it's the parents who weight it down so heavy with adult issues. Ignorance starts at home not at school!
