Avon High School is a very competitive academic school. All teachers and students have huge potential for high position jobs in the future. The curriculum sets everyone up for success and bright futures. In addition to the high academic achievements, Avon High School is also a great community. The teachers and staff have great connections and are very proud to work at this very high school. The students get along with the teachers and staff as well. As a junior going into my senior year at AHS, I feel very welcomed and safe at this establishment. From academics, to clubs, to even sports, this school provides high quality space, time, and equipment.

Unfortunately, there are many things that the school needs to work on based on the culture and climate. In my last year a student unfortunately took their own life, and I hate to say that the administration did little to nothing to fully address and help other students in the situation, only having counselors available for two days the weekend after the traumatic incident. Despite stressing how important they believe the safety and well-being of a student is in their academic career, this was not shown at all before, during and/or after the incident. This led to many students shutting themselves out and this also affected their performance in classes and extra curriculars.
In terms of academics, AHS is pretty good. But there are many problems with this school regarding administration and teachers. I wish that the town did not spend so much money on things that are not necessary (ex. they spend about 2 million dollars to make a new track and field, but do not have enough money to fix the bathrooms). I have had an interesting experience in Avon, but if you are looking for a school only for academic purposes, go to another town. The high tax rates and privelege that every single student seems to have is not worth it.
