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.

Personally I felt as though the teachers and administration cared more about how the school appeared to the public rather than how it appealed to the students. It was always about getting good grades and bumping up our school averages. I don’t remember many classes where I actually learned something that would stick. Everything that was taught was taught for the purpose of taking a test. Frankly, I will say that I had a lot of teachers who truly helped me and I will probably remember as some of the best ones. They were helpful, understanding, and knew how to make a lesson stick and make it useful in the real world.
My experience at Avon High School has been amazing so far. I have been challenged an incredible amount, but I've learned so much about myself as a student, and as a person. The only thing I wish to see change would be more diversity in student life and organizations, and a little more relaxation on homework and work policies. High school can be incredibly stressful, and sometimes teachers do not help. Overall, though, I have loved every single one of my teachers who I feel are always there for me, and I wouldn't trade my experience for anything.
