I came out of a very small private school where my grade only had 14 students into, what seemed to me, a much bigger public school. I first came to Avonworth very worried, thinking I would not fit in or properly adapt to the new environment. However, I was very wrong. Although the number of people in my grade increased about 130 students, I realized I did not have much to worry about. The classes were all a good size and every teacher, including our principal, knew our names. The academics were very good and the overall atmosphere was very nice.

Avonworth is a great school. The teachers are great and really care about their students. There are tons of opportunities for all types of students. For a smaller school, there are plenty of after school activities and sports. The administration does a good job of constantly trying to improve the school. The community and culture is awesome and it’s fun to live here.
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!!
