Avon Lake High School Reviews

Avon Lake High school is beautiful. The school track is brand new, there is a weight room available to students, and there is also a wide variety of AP and honors courses available for students to choose from. There is also a personal trainer on campus to help students who become injured during sports practices. Classes are rigorous, and students are competitive. The food options, however, are limited, and vegetarians, vegans, and others with dietary restrictions are forced to either a) pack their own lunch or b) eat peanut butter sandwiches. The food options are also always the same each weekday (except on Wednesdays), so a packed lunch is the way to go. There is a noticeable lack of diversity in the school, and many students (especially seniors) drink.

The teachers are very involved. The current principle loves to hype school spirit, his motto is GBED-Get Better Every Day (I wanted to point out everyday is one word but decided against it). The school offers college readiness classes for freshmen sophmores juniors and seniors. The school also has a very diverse curriculm of electives like TV Production, creative writing, Digital Art, and a program with LCCC, our local community college, to prepare students who want to become teachers themselves. The school is very safe for students under Detective Herd and parking lot patrol. The highschool is currently building and improving learning centers and the library as well as more classrooms. Every class is equipped with active boards, dry erase boards, and even chalk boards. Overall Avon Lake High School is a very safe and respected school that offers its students the best education and preperation for college in a cozy city.
Overall good teachers with a few exceptions, very good foreign language program. Sports teams are decent but not many are state champion worthy. Updated technology and many honors, AP, and college credit (through the community college) classes to choose from for all grades. Almost all college credit classes are taught at the high school so you don't need to go off campus.
