Avondale High School Reviews
Avondale = 5 stars !!
I've had 2 boys go through the Avondale school systems, 1st thru 12th grades.
My first had a 3.8+ GPA, graduated from college with 2 masters and has successfully landed a job with a fortune 500 company. The 2nd is a senior and also has a 3.8+GPA, is liked by classmates and teachers and will no doubt do well in college and beyond..
Never once did I see any bullying, bad treatment of any kids, etc..
I am so happy that we choose Avondale and have never had any regrets..
Every time I walk down the halls the kids all say hello, treat me with respect and even open doors for me. As a Parent, I'm proud to wear my purple and gold !!
I graduated from Avondale in 1980 and left the state. After teaching and living in several different countries and states, my children and I find ourselves home again. My children love Avondale (Middle and High, and before, Woodland elementary) as do I. It is very economically and ethnically diverse, similar to the world outside school. It's a good school with good and caring teachers. We especially love the theater program at the High school. They are great and award winning (a great director!). I recommend Avondale to everyone.
I go to Avondale high school and I honestly love it. It's a division 2 school so while walking down the halls, you recognize almost everybody. We have a really tight knit community and a very strong leadership program. We have our good teachers and our bad teachers but so does every school.
Also we have an Academy where they send students with very poor grades to help make the high school a better place for people who want to learn.
very sad that to this day my son has great difficulty writing.....It took me awhile before I learned that his teachers were having him draw pictures of what he learned in class instead of writing......He writes all his letters backwards and tells me he taught himself to write because no one in school helped him.
When my son switched schools his records from Avondale Painted him as a trouble maker..Two days in his new school the teacher called me and told me what a wonderful kid he was.
Avondale allowed bullying.My son was harrassed and tortured by his fellow students and they did nothing about it.In fact they told me my son brought it on hisself.
My only regret is that I didnt pull my son out many years before I did.
