I have had a great experience at Avery High School. There are students who would probably disagree because they may feel as though the effort that was put into me by parents, students, and coaches may not have been provided with the same learning opportunities as myself and similar students.

There are multiple sports team, club, and volunteer organizations. There are about four main clubs whose advisors go above and beyond and offer club activities both during and after school.
Many teachers have a genuine interest in their students and the subjects they teach; however there are also multiple teachers who prioritize sports and and favor students athletes.
