Avon High School is a small rural school in southeast South Dakota. Since it is located in a town of about 600 with many surrounding farms and ranches, everyone just about knows everyone. With a class size of twelve and total enrollment of around 230 students K-12, this school is the very definition of small. But there are many advantages to that. Many students develop long lasting and close relationships with both their peers and teachers. Small classes allow for more one-on-one assistance for students and help the teachers know their students well so that they can adjust their lesson plans that will allow for optimum performance from their students. The only drawback is the relative lack of opportunities and class choices. Yet with the gift of technology, online courses and far away opportunities are becoming more readily available.

The teachers at AHS are excellent. Every single teacher focuses on actually teaching the students what they need to know, and they put the students first. The staff at Avon High School is very friendly and very helpful. Alot of knowledge about camps and college visits is provided through the school, which is also very helpful. Sports are a very big deal at AHS and they have wonderful, encouraging, and knowledgeable coaches. Avon also does very well at competing in science fair. The science fair program has wonderful support from the community and the teachers. The science teachers are very good at explaining and helping the students with science fair. All around Avon School District is a great school.
So far in high school, I have loved the student-teacher interactions. They are always there if you have any questions or need help on something. They have helped me so much to prepare for life outside of high school. I’m so glad I have amazing people like them to guide me into my future. One thing I would like to change about Avon, is the amount of resources you have. We have very limited laptops and technology that many other schools use to help students excel. I believe that our school could take education even farther with the right amount of resources
