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.
Overall, it was a high school. There's not much more or much less to be said. It's hard to succeed in Ava high unless you have one of the right last names, but that's how it is in town, too, so I guess that is good life preparement. It's the best option in the area, but that doesn't make it good. Just bite the bullet and move to Springfield, there's nothing for anyone around Ava unless you're a farmer or a meth head.
