I absolutely love Avon. I moved to Avon when I was 3 when my house was being built. I went to Avon Local Schools and graduated in 2019. I loved Avon because of the teachers and administrators. They were always so understanding whenever you needed help. Also, there is so much to do in Avon. The shopping, sports, and parks are awesome. Avon is a true community always helping each other out, especially in times of need. I would not want to live anywhere else!

Avon is a wonderful city! It has an outstanding school district with caring faculty and staff members. In addition, Avon is very family oriented and has many wonderful family-owned businesses.
Avon is a West-Side suburb of Cleveland that is undergoing a period of rapid growth. The city boasts most of the amenities that families could want in terms of shopping and restaurants. The local school system features strong academics and athletics. Avon's unchecked residential and commercial expansion could prove to be a negative, as traffic is already quite bad. Diversity is almost nonexistent.
