Avanti High School is a beautiful diamond hidden in a world of rocks. Many schools offer a rigid and unforgiving atmosphere. Avanti allows for a flexible, honest, engaging, accepting, and real environment conducive not only to relevant learning, but also to the growth of all students. When you learn at Avanti, the courses offered teach you not only arithmetic and writing, but about yourself, your community, world, and help you to develop skills for life. Avanti is not just another school. Avanti is a revolution in thinking, teaching, and learning. From day one, when every student discovers their learning style, you know you belong. It is a safe, healthy, happy, and loving environment. There is no harassment, no prejudiced, no fear, or hate. Classes are filled with intelligent conversation, and people generally want to learn. The entire educational process is tailored to the student, with none ever feeling the famous disconnect between the assignment and "real life". The teachers are incredible, and care about their students. The principal is a wonderful leader, and someone who we can trust. And the students? Some of the best friends I've ever had.
