Avonworth School District Reviews

As a student of Avonworth since kindergarten, I really enjoyed my experience here. Although there may have been some inadequate teachers and problems along the way, that exists at any school. It really depends on how you decide to utilize the system and take advantage of all the perks of going to a small public school. As a student who loads up on AP classes, the teachers really try to work with the students to not only prepare you to pass that exam, but adjust to make your learning experience as best as possible. I have seen the teachers and administration change drastically since my older siblings attended. I am sad they did not get to see it but the people in charge right now are always for the students. They are very supportive of having fun while prioritizing academics. One of the best perks of being a small school is that everybody has the chance to be heard if they choose to speak out. I am very fortunate to say that I will be very sad to leave Avonworth!

I graduated from Avonworth in 2012. I am was not out as Transgender when I attended. I remember Avonworth use to have a lack of diversity over all. There was a lot of Racism, Ableism, Sexism, Homophobia, Transphobia etc. I attempted to start a GSA in 2009-2010 and then again in 2011-2012. In 2015 I supported the GSA club to be approved as a school club. The work that GSA club is doing now is helping improve the diversity. There is now a diversity committee, which is helping improve the school district's diversity.
It was overall a fine education, but I wasn’t really challenged. It was very secluded, people often call it the “Avonworth bubble.” There were lots of fun extra-curricular activities to participate in, but that’s really where the opportunities lie.
