Avon High School Reviews
Avon High School is a great school filled with many opportunites to succeed. The environment is friendly and teachers will do anything to help if you don't understand the material, they make time for you when you need the extra help. The school also helps the students prepare for College by making it a requirement to take a PSAT and PACT to make sure your headed in the right direction.
I liked Avon High School, but I feel that I often suffered in classes due to unprepared teachers or teachers that were not invested enough. I also don't think the AP classes I took prepared me for college well at all. The only reason I stayed at Avon High School was because of the Avon Marching Black and Gold and the Avon Drumline.
A corrupt administration with a few good teachers trying their best to make a difference. In recent years it has become overcrowded with little hope for expansion. Drug problems throughout the school.
I enjoy high school. I think high school for most people is hit or miss. The only problem I could ever state about Avon high is that there were several teachers that weren't necessarily great teachers. Not that they were bad or ruthless people, all of my teachers we nice but throughout my entire experience there were 1 or 2 teachers that did really seem like they knew what they were doing or didn't enforce discipline. On the contrary though I found all the teachers, including the clueless seeming ones, very supportive and genuinely eager for us to succeed. There was never a teacher I had that didn't care about my success in their class. That school in general is full of personality that I really appreciate. You will find at least one person you get a long with no matter how much of an "outsider" or antisocial you are.
Personally, I love the environment of Avon High School. It's always showing new ways to get involved and stay included and connected with your peers. Avon High School has taught me the endless possibilities that come when you leave the building and I appreciate them for that a lot. If i wanted anything to change I would like to see more teacher involvement in the students education. Sometimes it seems as though they are just trying to do their job wishing the day would pass by faster.
Avon High School has a lot of diverse groups of people, so everyone can find a niche within the school community. The teachers are really great, and seem to genuinely enjoy what they do. They spend the time to actually teach for understanding instead of just having the students memorize facts for tests. There is also a large selection of clubs and spots teams, so there is something for everyone. The environment as a whole is very welcoming and accepting of everyone.
I love Avon High School because of the opportunities it has given me throughout my 4 years here. At Avon we strive for excellence by providing an array of classes, clubs, sports, and after school activities for students. I consider myself as someone who has been very involved in school. I know a ton of the administration and staff, who I talk to on a daily basis. I have also met some of my best friends here. Avon is one of the best high schools in Indiana, but it also has it's flaws. Although they are few and far between, my schools sometime struggles to meet the needs of every student. But with over 3,000 kids I can see how that's hard. Other than that my school is a great school and I am proud to have gone here.
My overall experience at AHS has been pretty swell. The teachers actually want to be there and want to help you get to your next stage in life. I would only like to change the size of the school being that you feel like a number not a person.
My experience at Avon High School has been awesome. I have enjoyed the diverse classes and wide range of courses offered. Avon High School has amazing counselors, willing to work with you at anytime. I've truly enjoyed my experience here.
My time at Avon High schoool is something I will never forget. I made amazing friendships and joined so many activities that always kept me busy throughout the years.Joining different sports and activities really helped me find who I am as a person in this world. If there was one thing I could change it would be to change the lunch menu and get a bigger variety of food. With these sports and activities I do everyday I always need a good meal to keep me going throughout the day. Eating the same foods everyday I feel doesnt give me all the nutrients I need to really thrive and perform at my best.
What I like about Avon High School the most is that the school really pushes the students to go to college. Which is so important. I also like the school spirit. Avon did there best to show the appreciation of the school. They also gave back to the community. There lots of fundraising events raising money for homeless, kids with cancer and etc. Also Avon is excellent with safety. Cops, teachers and even students were there to stop fights as soon as it happen. It's a great school overall.
I have been in the Avon School district since kindergarten and all of the schools have been fantastic. Both hands on learning and visual learning. The teachers take the time to really make sure you've grasped the concept and allow you to message them on Schoology if you have any questions on a certain area we studied. I love I had the opportunity to attend a school with so much to offer.
I enjoyed the academic challenge presented from AHS that I didn’t get from my previous schools. Although, I think there were gaps within the relationship of students, teachers, and counselors. Being that there were 2 counselors for an average of 700 seniors, I barely spoke to my counselor and didn’t receive the proper guidance to be really college ready. I also think that at certain times the school didn’t handle student situations properly which created a greater distance between the administration and the students.
I love how big Avon is since it offers so many opportunities and prepares me for college, however a big high school comes with a lot of drama. Avon also offers many AP classes which further prepares me for college.
My experience at Avon High School was excellent; my teachers were kind and understanding, and other students were very accepting of one another. The issue is that this positivity is not uniform throughout the school. Since I was in high ability, I saw the same 100 students time and time again. At graduation, I met people I never knew went to Avon, but talking with non-high-ability students allowed me to gain insight into what the school was like for the average student. Teachers for non-high-ability students were less adept at teaching than their high ability counterparts. Less time was taken to attend to the intellectual needs of non-high-ability students, if any at all. I feel that the quality of education of these students, therefore, was lacking and unfair. If Avon took care of its average population more rather than focusing solely on the smartest students, I feel that not only will these students be more prepared for college and their future, but will be happier overall.
Nice teacher just a little too crowded for me . Also I think they spend to much money on the band and the football team and not enough on the academics
I liked the experience level of the teachers with the material. They knew their subjects well and were able to teach it to us well. The staff was friendly and treated all of us well. The building itself was always kept in good condition, though sometimes the district was lacking in money for supplies or new textbooks, a lot of textbooks were beat up or held together with tape.
