The teachers and administration were engaging and the curriculum challenging.
I have worked with many of the teachers and administrators in terms of helping with the programs at the school. I feel that they care about the well-being of the student body and reaching out to the parents to involve them with their students education. The music program, where I serve as a booster, has expanded with the district purchasing new equipment and hiring more staff. The marching band as well as concert band & chorus has grown tremendously in the past 3 years! Bravo! Music is a part of life!!

Avonworth High School has a great atmosphere and many great teachers! The administration at the school is also very flexible and open to new ideas. Overall, my time at Avonworth has been great!
The main issue with Avonworth is the culture. A large majority of the lower half of the high school students, freshmen and sophomores are stereotyped (with some justification) to be a bunch of wannabe gangsters who go suck on flash-drives in the bathroom because of the Juul epidemic. This is the most infuriating part of the school's culture. The few that act in this way destroy the school's culture because of how small our previous graduating classes have been, about 100 kids give or take a few, making it look like the whole school is full of degenerates, even though only a quarter or so are (which is also probably a bad thing).
