My child has been attending Avondale for 2 years now and I have been extremely happy with the teachers and staff, and all the fun activities offered after school (running club, line dancing, family fun nights, etc.). I grew up in Plain Local and Avondale has always been one of the best elementaries, if not THE best, and still is!

Horrible experience. The teachers are bad and all the school cares for is how they can get more federal dollars so they make up issues with the kids to justify getting them. The principal has no leadership qualities at all. Everytime you complain to him about the teachers or office staff, he just apologizes and says that they shouldn't be like this, but NOTHING gets done or changes. Speaking to 7-10 other parents, and the opinion is the same for 90% of them. They all are having issues with the teaching standards, communication, office staff rudeness and the principal's lack of leadership. My children will not be going back.

Overall, I am pleased with the teachers at Avondale. Unfortunately, I cannot say the same for the principal, Scott Esporite. I find him to be unreasonable, biased, unfair and portrays poor judgment in his decisions to find ways to handle difficulties.

The teachers are wonderful, well educated, and kind from what I have heard from my children. The tolerence level for bad behavior is very low at this school in my opinion which comes from the principal. It is a great little school with good teachers, it needs a good leader.

They need a new principal! I fought to have my child moved to Taft Elementry because of the poor qualities of the principal at Avondale. The school system needs to bring back Mr Hendricks.

As far as my husband and I am concerned Avondale is the best elementary in Canton that you could send your child too. I am comparing Avondale to what I have seen and what my friends(who have children my kids age)have told me about thier school. We and our children love the school and teachers so much that instead of my husband moving closer to his work like we originally planned he makes an hour and half drive. The principal is unbelievable, helping the kids after school hours when he does'nt have too always there with a kind word and smile. it is like a second family at Avondale. The children learn not only thier studies but about life and how to be the best you ,you can be. The programs offered at Avondale are wonderful and the parent involvement is very high because your happy to be there. Thank you Avondale faculty.
