Ava High is a good school when I went there. A lot of good moral values that we use in every day life after school was taught there. Pay attention and one will carry it with them through everyday life. Appreciate what you have and learn the basics. I am proud to say I went to Ava High.

I've been around this school for a very long time. It's mostly outdated and very clicky all in all. Math programs are very lacking, English is pushed very hard and labs lack in modern materials and supplies. Offers nothing in advanced computers such as computer design, Mechanics, build, video, or the things most needed in ife today. Sports equipment is very outdated, except for baseball programs due to Coach Sawyer who makes sure his athletes have the best. The high Administration is lacking in knowing what to do, they are very strict on making rules al though there are some teachers there who are excellent, very good councelling. It has an excellent gifted program. The school could be so much better with the bright students with potential but the 'buget' is more important there.

I attended AHS several years ago. I found most of the teachers and guidance counselors looked only as far as Douglas county in their efforts. College was almost never talked about. I did not listen to them and graduated from the University of Iowa. I received a solid base from the teachers that helped me through my higher education endeavors. On a recent visit I was pleased to see that discussions with students about the future were more than graduate and go work in a factory Don F.

Through my experiences at Ava thus far I have learned a lot. Ya got a handful of great teachers, but most of them are bias. Athletics are great as well as other extracurricular activities, but lack of funding disables many students. (cafeteria food, damaged books etc.) All in all it's a great school for its size, but there's always room for improvement.

AHS is a nice place to be in relation to the other schools surrounding us because we have used our funding wisely. The administration of the school tends to pick favorites; students who are 'left behind' don't tend to excell. Ava has a strong gifted and talented program with a very dedicated gifted student counselor. the mathematics programs at AHS are lacking as are advanced computing classes. The school has a large amount of successful students, the class of 2004 had three 4.0 students and sent 3 entering freshmen to an early-admission program at NWMSU <www.nwmissouri.edu/masmc/> the student body at AHS is close and friendly as are most of the teachers. music, art, sports are all available, as well as speech, quizbowl, and FBLA competitions. foreign language is limited with only spanish and french, covering only basic grammar and vocabulary. It's a nice school for a town of its size. <www.avaschools.k12.mo.us>
