My son has thrived and although he is only in k5 he is reading well beyond his grade level.

This school is not what it portrays itself to be. The IB program was presented as a higher achievers program along with the traditional elementary curriculum.

This is small school, which is s great thing and the teachers are conscientious. Would like to see the PTA get stronger. The school has much potential.

Avondale ES is an improving school. My kids are doing fine there. I would like to see more diversity--why are the immediate residents sending their children to learn elsewhere?
