My son is currently in kindergarten at Averill. We toured many schools in the Lansing School District, and could not be happier that we choose Averill. The principal and staff are all wonderful, dedicated professionals. They create an amazing community for the children and parents. We are extremely happy with the 50/50 Spanish immersion model. It is exciting to see my son learning to read, not only in English, but also in Spanish. When he was struggling with letter recognition, his teachers immediately noticed and signed him up to receive additional instruction from a instructional aide. The aid has done wonders for him, and he caught up quickly to his peers. We have also been very happy with the before/after school care provided by the local YMCA. The PTA is active and they coordinate lots of great events for the children and families. I am excited to watch this wonderful school grow and my son grow with it.

Averill is a great Spanish Immersion School. The teachers are very qualified and very caring. The principal is great. You really cannot put a value on being bilingual. The test scores don't show that value & the benefits of dual language education are really not seen until much later on. This type of dual language education is often only for the rich. I am glad that my kids have that same opportunity. I choose to go to Averill as it is not in my assigned area & would take a diverse learning environment and Spanish immersion over any East Lansing or Okemos school any day. Can't put a price on that in today's world. Also, the teachers are very open to talking about any issues you are concerned about & even offering suggestions. One of the teachers when I told her about a concern in Math said well it is my job to assist in the learning and I am going to work on this and get more informed on how I can better address the issue!

We love Averill school. The teachers are terrific and there are all sorts of after school enrichment activities as well. Both the Spanish immersion program and the regular program are wonderful.
