I am a former student of the entire Avon public school system (k-12) so I have a pretty good insight about AHS. The school has definitely been on the decline in the past few years in terms of quality of education. The reason AHS graduates go onto some of the top schools in the nation is because it's ...  Read more

I am the same person who wrote a post in May 2005, I wish to add a bit more after reflecting a bit more on Avon High.

I disagree that Avon is the best school in the state. In fact, it s quite average. I moved here last year, and I was surprised how short Avon High School fell of its outstanding reputation.

What a buccolic setting. All the children are above average, even the Goths who hang out in the grocery store parking lot on weekends. Very competitive classes provide excellent preparation for future megalomaniacs and insurance executives. Plus, the new renovation makes it look like a muffler factory. ...  Read more

When we moved to Avon we thought about sending our children to private school, but one day while driving we discovered there was a high school, where children could go for free! also the school food is better then our own, my children like it alot. AHS is a great place for everyone, in fact we spend ...  Read more

My child loves this school. It has provided her with a challenging work load that will prepare her for college. I think that this school has given her the skills needed to survive in the real world.

What a great place... Fantastic and creative faculty who challenge kids of all levels to do their best. School leadership is somewhat young and inexperienced---without a forward vision. Former students say they were well prepared for college.
