There is just not enough good words to describe what avondale house has done for my son. He is learning so much more than he did in his public school. The teachers and staff really seem to have genuine concern for their students and their education. This school is a god send. I cannot imagine what my son's education and self esteem would be like without this school. They are awesome!

Avondale House is the best thing that has happened to my grandson. All his school district wanted to do was suspend him, or send him to ABC or Apollo and that was not for him. My grandchild would not have known what he was being suspended for and ABC or Apollo are not for students like my grandson. When he went to middle school it was suggested that we look into Avondale House. We had never heard of Avondale House. No one in the school district had told us there was another school we could take him to. The teachers are great and they really care about the students. My grandson is now learning. At his school district they could not teach him and most of the time did not even try. I highly recommed Avondale House to anyone with a child that is Autistic or has Autistic like symptons.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.
