Avon Grove Charter School Reviews

All three of my children have attended AGCS since kindergarten and are now entering 7th, 8th, and 9th grades. Above all, my reason for the 5 star ranking is that each of my three children is extremely HAPPY at school. Though their individual needs are extremely different from one another - academically and socially as well as extracurricular interests- and this "small school" with more "limited programming" has easily met their needs. The teachers care deeply and have done everything within their power to help my children succeed, every step of the way. Administrators are approachable and open to feedback and problem solving. All staff are working to expand already amazing programming in the arts, science, language arts, history, math, and foreign language departments. Personal highlights for my children are the dance program (how often is that an option for a MS student?!)and the Chinese language program (one of few local schools to offer Chinese through AP). Highly recommend!

An outstanding school! Excellent academic rigor and standards with a small, neighborhood feel. The administration and teachers know all of the students. Not only do they ensure that your child is challenged academically, but they also focus on building character. My 7th grader has been at AGCS since Kindergarten. I have seen her grow into an accepting, kind, focused individual under the care of the teachers and staff. I highly recommend AGCS!
I believe that Avon Grove Charter School really allowed me to excel in not only my academics, but it also allowed me to become more active in my school. Avon Grove Charter School is a very small high school, with only 70 people in my graduating class. However, being a smaller school allowed for more opportunities. It allowed me to get involved in multiple clubs and allowed me to become president of student council. Becoming president opened up many doors and really allowed me to take on more responsibility and become respected among my peers. Inside of the classroom, the class sizes were smaller than an average classroom which allowed for more questions to be asked and for teachers to take more one on one time with their students. The Teachers at Avon Grove Charter School are also very invested in their students. Try often give up their lunch or preparation periods to help students who are struggling in their class. I rate Avon Grove Charter School overall four stars.
