The overall quality of the teachers at my school is great! Since I live in a small community, everyone here is pretty close knit. If you have a problem with a concept, need extra help, or simply need someone to confide in, you can always count on a teacher to provide help with strict confidentiality. Teacher's at Ava High School strive to help their students become successful. They try out new teaching techniques if one is not working out and encourage the use of technology as a helpful tool. Our teachers are hardworking, dedicated individuals and they receive my utmost respect.

Sport events and pep rallies are by far my favorite experiences at my high school. The school spirit the student body as a whole has is outstanding! Our staff promotes school pride to every student along with respect for competing schools. If I had to go through school all over again, I wouldn't hesitate to attend Ava High School for another 4 years.
A few years ago, the school started the Bears Den, which is an after school program. For high schoolers, it mainly just offers tutoring, but in middle school and elementary school, hundreds of students stay for the programs. Theres even a program for the fourth graders, where they make a newspaper, the newspaper is then printed and distributed with our local newspaper once a quarter. This program has made state headlines, with the students and teachers on live news broadcasts.
