Overall, Avery is a great school. It is a warm and welcoming environment. Parents, administrators and teachers are active and collaborative. Until recently, my family was extremely happy with our experience. This year, however, we have been disappointed in the way our child s recently diagnosed learning disability has been handled. What started out feeling like a collaborative effort based on genuine concern for our child now feels cold and adversarial. There seems to be a lack of understanding of the complexity of our child s particular situation. We now feel intolerance and frustration from certain staff members more than support as we work to get our child the necessary therapy outside of school. It has left our child anxious and miserable in the classroom. We hope we will again love the school, but it s probably going to take a fresh start in the fall to get there.

We have been at this school for 5 years, and find it perfect for our children. The teachers are easy to talk to, and make the best learning environment for each student. My daughter has a high IQ, but slower processing speed, and all of the teachers have made sure to create an environment where she can learn at her best. When she was going through vision therapy for double vision, the teachers similarly made sure the environment worked for her vision needs. This last year at Avery has been the best so far. I have seen my daughter grow tremendously, and learn so many skills that will help her in higher education, such as public speaking and organizational methods necessary for successful research. Both of my kids love school and they love learning. Although the school is very full, the classrooms typically have 19 kids in each room (last year my son had 14 in his room). The school is full of very loving and caring teachers and staff. The new principal that started the fall of 2012 has been great, too.

Avery is a fantastic school community that is unfortunately suffering due to the fact that the Webster Groves School District has allowed its school population to balloon to 520 students, well above it's own "ideal" target of 456. This has caused class sizes to exceed not only district guidelines but state ideals. If the WGSD won't address the size and space issues at Avery, it needs to support learning by giving the very dedicated staff the resources they need to do the job. I really want to give my children an above average school experience but right now Avery just is not making the grade in my book.
