    "I graduated from Avon Grove in 2012. I am now about to enter my senior year of college, and honestly Avon Grove did not prepare me at all. I was an average student, but majority of the teachers didn't really seem to care. One of the biggest issues I had with the school is just the administration and the way things are run. I remember not being allowed to go to my locker after lunch to put my stuff away, even though the "hall monitor" would be able to see me go to my locker and then return to the lunch room. The last week of my senior year, after never once getting in trouble my entire school career, I got a detention for about 2 inches worth of my bra strap showing. It was my first "offense" ever and I was told I could either take the detention or take a week long suspension (sorry for having breasts I guess?) Someone needs to go in and fix this school. Become less focused on petty little things, treating your students like prisoners, and give them a real education."

    "I graduated from AGHS in 2013, and am currently on tract to become a doctor in college. I feel as if my four years at this high school from a students point of view were a complete waste of time. This school did not prepare myself at all for college and I feel that I could have worked a 9-5 job during this time and came out as a smarter individual. I am now a high honors student in college, and graduated from AGHS with a 3.0 GPA. I found that during my time here going to school felt like a jail, I did not get anything from the classes that made me feel like a smart individual. After 2 years of college I can feel myself getting more educated and wish that I could of had a chance during my teenage years to do so. If I were a parent looking for places to send my child, I would completely avoid this school."

    "After great experiences at Penn London Ele and AGIS, decent experiences at FS Engle, we are really disappointed in AGHS. Our kids have had some very good teachers but I have to say the administration and guidance department are not student focused. They seem more concerned with doing what they "have to" than doing as much as they can to help their students."

    "AG is really great! its so laid back as an environment but still structured so you get the skills you need. The other students are a bit rude but hey thats highschool. The teachers are very understanding also."

    "My two brothers attended this school before me, and I can confidently say that they received a better education at Avon Grove than I. Avon Grove has been having a poor trend of quality teacher retention and it has led to the sufferance of the school as a whole. Quality teachers are looking elsewhere once they get their feet wet at AG. The Administration; however, has not addressed this problem adequately and focused more on building a multi-million dollar football stadium. For instance, out of the four English teachers I had in high school only one remained after I graduated. The diversity of the school population has been growing and that is a great opportunity for the school, but the curriculum has not been altered in far too long a time. Look hard at Avon Grove before deciding to attend."
