My sons have gone to Avondale for 3 years now and they love it! They have really good and caring teachers (for pre-k through 1st anyways) and they have good standards for what they require themore to work on and learn in a given time frame. They are much further advanced than other students I've seen from nearby schools from the same grade. It will be sad when we have to leave Avondale in a couple years (leaving the state) or soon when we find a house in Amarillo.
Coming from a different school in the same district, I realized there are huge differences between them. My daughter went from loving her teacher, school & curriculum every day to hating everything about her new school (avondale) within the first 2 weeks.
