They do an excellent job of preparing students for college. I was genuinely surprised when I went and college and found that many of the skills I took for granted (good essay writing, strong math background, etc.) weren't mirrored in students from other high schools. However, there is a very serious bullying problem at the school, at least when I was attending in the early 2000s. I would hope it's been addressed since, but it definitely was not a priority while I attended.

Avonworth is small enough that I have known the favorite color and first crush of almost every student in my graduating class. We are indubitably tightly knit; however, this leaves limited room to grow socially or to develop new relationships.

The staff of Avonworth -- for the most part -- is exceptional, especially the middle school Gifted Education teacher Melissa DeSimone (who unofficially mentors many high school students) and School Counselor Dave Como. In short terms, his heart for our wellbeing supersedes his job title.

I have the resources I need to accomplish anything; the administration has been gracious and supportive while helping me to earn my Girl Scout Gold Award, for which I started a school club. If I asked them to, I think most teachers would stay after school with me to help me learn as much as I can and/or need to.
Avonworth High School, is a small intimate school where the teachers actually care and are hands on with students. Each teacher wants you to succeed and will help a student until they achieve success. The education you can get at avonworth is something that you cannot get anywhere else. Going to a small district is a great thing when it comes to the type of education you want to get. No one is ever behind and will always be caught up by the help of educators. Overall, Avonworth is a great place to go to school and a great district to live in.
