My child attended AGIS for 4 years. We had 3 good teachers out of 7 (switched for reading, math & content). The principal will tell you want you want to hear but will not do nothing to fix the problem. Their anti-bully policy is nonexistent. My child was being called names, shoved into cubbies, elbowed and kicked. We were told "this is teasing not bullying". I am glad my child is out of AGIS and headed to the middle school (which is wonderful).

AGIS has been great for both my daughters. We've LOVED every teacher but one. But, hey no school is perfect. And my daughter still got her education from this teacher, even though she didn't rub us the right way. Otherwise, I can not say enough good things about the school. The principal seems like he REALLY cares & puts his all into his job there. He is out there every morning assisting with the children entering the school. He has fought for a better grade reporting system, etc...I spoke to him once about a concern I had & he has remembered me ever since, waves to me in the car line and all!

We move to this school from another district this year. Based on the INCREDIBLY high school taxes here, I'd expect much more. So far I'm underwhelmed. Besides one fantastic teacher, all I'm finding is a lack of response (teachers say "please call or email us," but if you do they don't answer), instruction below the level of what my child had in her old district in lower grades, bizarre rules and procedures (a weird notes-based system for carpool and after-school clubs that makes little sense and doesn't work as intended -- too long to detail here but suffice it to say I've found NO ONE who feels this system either works or makes good sense), and a basic lack of understanding and logic as concerns an ever increasing variety of issues of importance to my family and my child's education. Hopefully I'll get into the swing of this, but so far I'm just not feeling the love.

We moved up here from Delaware two years ago, and we are very satisfied with our son's education so far!!!

My son received a poor quality education overall at this school. He was at this school four years. At least 2 out of the 4 years he had poor quality teachers. I told one of the female principals that my son needed extra help---which was evidenced by his PSSA scores. When I asked her what we could do to get him the help he needed, she leaned back in her chair, opened her hands, palms up, and shrugged her shoulders. I have never experienced such incompetence at any of my other children's schools. The school taxes are too high to be wasting money on such a mean spirited, uncaring, incompetent principal. I believe her lack of leadership caused most of the problems at this school. Very disturbing and disappointing.

It came to my attention this morning, while signing off on my son's work, that suddenly in the 6th grade Purple Pod spelling is no longer an issue. What's up with that? Fancy grids, blocks & chunks, scribble all over the page. But spelling is not corrected????

We moved from Delaware 2 years ago. Our daughter went to a private school so we thought she would breeze through the transition to a new school, especially a public school despite the great test scores and reputation. We were shocked, her very nice private school that we were paying a fortune for didn't compare to the education in the Avon Grove school district. The first year was pretty tough, getting her caught up. The teachers have been wonderful, the schools/campus are great. Not to mention how family oriented the area is in general. We couldn't have picked a better area to move to.

My student was originally placed in a math class below ability. It was a struggle to upgrade to a higer math class. My student is not overall challenged by the curriculum at AGIS. Moreover, both the Guidance office and administration seem to have their hands full handling bullying, rumors and intimidation issues, which seem to be widespread. They also had difficulty making sure my student got to the assigned lunch period, and have let them go hungry without lunch. I would like to see more homework and some community service projects.

My daughter started AGCS last year and is now going into first grade. I cannot tell you enough how well she is doing!! She is reading at a 2nd grade level or above. She loves the school, I love the teachers and believe she is getting the best education in the world. I am so grateful for this school and cannot stress enough how wonderful it is!

The switch to Avon Grove Charter School was the best move I have made for my kids. My children are receiving a higher level of education while being introduced to programs they would not otherwise have had the opportunity to do so. School is actually something our kids look forward to attending instead of dread. I cannot stress enough the quality of programs and staff at the Charter school, as well as the level of parental involvement that is encouraged. In the traditional public school system, my kids were just a number. At the Avon Grove Charter School, each child is treated as an individual and actually receives an individualized education. Once again, BEST move we have ever made for our children

Avon Grove Charter School is a wonderful School that has an education system based around the theatrical arts! However I have noticed some signs of favortism.

AGCS is the best school in the region. It has a reputation in Southern Chester County that rivals even the most prestigious private schools. My children have been at AGCS for two years and are leaps and bounds ahead of their counterparts in the local public schools. We were thrilled to learn that AGCS placed 3rd among all schools in Chester County and 1st among charter schools in the recent PSSA writing assessment! The teachers and administration at AGCS are the most caring helpful people a family could ask for. The school also has a dress code policy that encourages students to respect themselves and communicate school pride to everyone in the community. AGCS operates on a lottery system, and doesn't charge tuition. Even so, it is far better than most schools that do!
