Avon High School is probably one of the best schools in Hendricks County. The teachers are really helpful and care about your academic career. Often some teacher would stay after school to help students with understanding a topic. One thing I would change is hallway monitoring because there are students that just stand in the middle of the hallway and sometime get in the way going to class or maybe even reducing the number of students could help. Students love getting involved with school fund raisers too! The high raised money for children's hospital. I just love how the students and teachers are involved and care about each other.

I participated in numerous activities at Avon High School, from Band to National Honor Society. I enjoyed the wide variety of academic courses, especially AP, and the skill of the teaching staff there in. The fine arts programs are top notch and college readiness classes are exceedingly effective. One primary issue however, is the culture of the student body. There is no sense of "school spirit" outside of the fabricated feelings that administration attempts to instill in the students. This isn't detrimental to learning or safety, but it definitely negatively impacts the connectedness that students feel towards the school and each other. This may just be a "big school" sort of issue, but it is certainly evident at Avon High School. All in all, Avon's academic and extracurricular programs enhance one's learning and facilitate great memories for those who participate in extracurricular activities.
Avon High School is an excellent school with a wide range of extracurricular programs and academic pursuits. The faculty is absolutely stellar. Various teachers have won state wide awards for their success within the classroom and the scoring that they can facilitate in students is widely known. Personally, I have taken various AP courses at Avon High school and have received wonderful support and direction from my teachers. However, I am not positive that such wonderful instruction is present in less advanced courses at the High school. This is my only doubt about Avon High School, that their less advanced students are not as highly prioritized as their more advanced students. Nevertheless, Avon High School attempts to promote a sense of unity between all students and the administration. It is this unity that makes many students feel safe and supported at Avon, and that feeling is essential to the success of a high school.
