    "I also agree with the two other parents who said Mr. Curtis is very good for his boys. The girls, too. He really seems to care and goes the extra mile. As a parent, I am worried about the leadership of this school. The principal does not support her teachers and is very critical and hurts their efforts to help and teach the students."

    "As a new parent, I am impressed, My son came from a school that would give Joe Clark a run for the mone The entire staff cares, knows your child and will call you if needed for anything. I thoroughly agree with Mr.King about Mr. Curtis. An excellent teacher for male students. My son thought he could be charming, and get away with anything-not happening in this school. Mr. Curtis noticed he loved to read, and brought in books he took a interest in to encourage his reading beyond grade level."

    "I believe Ms. Higgenbottom is doing the best she can with the school, which is in my opinion about a 60 percent turn from where they were. I also believe she has an exellent staff. Especially Mr. Curtis who goes above and beyond his duty to educate Brenden Butler. Jerry C King"

    "I graduated from Avalon Park with the class of 89' and back then we had decent structure and discipline. I don't know what has happened to our school and this generation of students but they aren't scared of anyone and they don't follow directions if they don't want to. I don't know where or when the situation went from good to bad to worse but it has been only one week since the new school year, new principal, and new school and Avalon has shown great improvement. It shows every time my kids come home and say 'the staff is acting mean, we can't do nothing' (translation-The ball is rolling in the right direction and now the school has some type of order)."

    "A new Principal has been hired. It's just the third day of school but I can already see a difference. For the first time in years the hallways were clear of children during school hours. It's starting to look like the school I attended years ago. Looking forward to the change and the new leadership!"
