Having worked here for the past year, I have found this school to be a great environment for children in a christian atmosphere. The principal and teacher both hold high values and nurture the students in all areas of their lives. It is both a blessing to work here and to see what the children are gaining. They will be a great asset to this world and will be fully prepared for the world to come.

This is a small school with God fearing leadership; innovative programs, and caring teachers. The church that supports this school is a great presence in the community and shows a real interest in the people that it serves.

Avondale is a school where children obtain a biblical education, while also learning math, language,science,social studies,english,roleplay,choir, and comedy educations, They could also use some volunteers, its not how small a pea is count its how small your faith can be in God to have God on your side.

I give 4 stars. It's a small school but it alleviates problems that high attendance schools present. It's personal and involved which helps in a society where it is increasingly difficult to raise your children with values and morals. Even though I am not Senventh Day Adventist some basic belief are the same as mine and encouraged which creates a link between home and school.

Excellent school, and the teachers are one the friendliest and well organized in the county. The grades for the student body reflects the skill and intensive training that ECH teacher gives to their students both in group and individual care.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
