Avon Lake High School is extremely good for college readiness, it provides College Credit Plus and AP courses along with amazing teachers who care about their students. There are also a number of different courses for any type of student whether it's through art, technology, manufacturing, video-making, etc. There is a variety of different clubs, activities, and sports available to all students. There are also a number of different resources available to help any student who needs it via counselors, principals, or teachers and the overall great administration who provides these. The safety of this school is great. There is always a resource officer around if needed and he is very hands-on. The things the school could improve on is the quality of the food to make it more appetizing for students, and the diversity within the school. I'd love to see more cultures, ethnicities, and races in this school to promote diversity and show what they have to offer!

I have thoroughly enjoyed my four years at Avon Lake High School. The teachers involved are positive and extremely helpful with both class and sometimes even personal issues. There is a wide variety of classes available to take, spanning from several AP classes, to College Credit Plus, to honors, and to regular. There is a spot for everyone in this school, and no one is left behind. I have been prepared for college and feel as if the transition will not be all that difficult. Most students are determined to learn and are extremely intelligent in their own unique ways. Sports are significant, with Avon Lake offering every sport across the board throughout each season. Football games are well attended by students and pep rallies bring the school together. The only reason for 4 stars is the minor issues with guidance. There is sometimes confusion with the guidance office but overall all problems are solved with several visits to a counselor.
My overall experience with Avon Lake high School was mostly positive. The teachers are all extremely helpful and caring. The whole school has a very welcoming and community feel to it. I enjoyed my time at Avon Lake High School very much! One thing I would want to change about the school is the lack of diversity. The school is predominately white and I would love to see more diversity.
