    "This is my first year at Avondale Elementary and from the moment I came here the staff has been wonderful, open, supportive and helpful. My daughter is in kindergarten and not only is her teacher wonderful but when my child was having difficulty she tutored her so give her extra help after school. The only thing that I am disheartened about is the fact the parental involvement is not as strong as it should be. The PTA though has worked very hard this year to change that and I DO see some changes. I am hoping that next year more parents will take an interest, as the school is working to get parents involved. We are our children's strongest advocate. I am so very happy that I am apart of the Avondale Elementary family."

    "my child has been a student here for 4 years during which he struggled and finally got dxed autistic. i did not know anything about the special education process and knew nothing about rti(response to intervention) or bestpractices or any of the steps for referal but even still he had a great first gr. teacher. once i shared my concerns it wasnt long before he had proper support.. my dealings with all faculty and staff has been exceedingly smooth and trouble free. the teachers and support staff especially in the special education program are stellar. they are dedicated and keep lines of communication open at all times. i feel this school has gotten a reputation in the surrounding community because it had been almost exclusively caucasion and has over the past 10-15 years become slowly more and more disadvantaged lower socioeconomically majority african american... because all the whites got scared and moved either to private schools or started charters in the neighborhood. the flight has left a sense of confrontational unease that i think is unjustified because we are white and dont have any problems. this is an international bacalaureate program school and we love it."

    "My previous report about my son's experience at Avondale changed to be unfruitful. My son was unable to focus in the class setting. The class size was 34 students. Student withdrawals occurred every other week. No phonics was being taught. The list was always given at the end of the day. He received challenged words and work but it was considered busy work and a level above third. There was no consistency in foundation of the material taught and reviewed. My son told me they were tested on something every other week or day. I also volunteered once a week and noticed the same kids in the office because teachers could not manage them. The office secretary became the disciplinary person. The kids sent out of the classes were mostly boys. To me, this is disturbing. We have predominately women teachers and lacking male teachers who are effective. What does that say to our boys' future? There need to be interactive and challenging curriculums that involve everyday experience. Change is needed. After careful observation, I withdrew my son from the second grade school year in December and we are playing catch up on what he lost and did not learn."

    "My children have attended Avondale for two years now. It seems to be ok. My daughter is learning to work hard and the understanding that grades are not going to be given to you. You have to work hard which she does. My son on the other hand is very smart and intelligent but the immediate staff over him doesn't have the patience to help him be all he can be. I've asked for a change but was told the teacher he have is great. Well I'm not convinced of that considering my son is there in her presence everyday and I am in constant communication with the teacher. She has such a negative perception of him I know the quality of his education is being affected. Still pushing to have him removed out the class before he lags behind in the curriculum. So I'm half and half on this school. I would like to see more hands on projects/field trips to help build the IB portion of the school. My children and me agree they haven't developed this program enough and that was the main reason we changed to this school."

    "My child has completed the 5th grade at this school, we kept him here because of work schedules, I won't the best for my child and this was not it. There is not enough space for me to write all the negatives about this school, however it starts with administration. Ms. Malone would have been great as my teacher/principal, however times have changed and our children are not getting a real educational experience. Not CCRT! 3/4 of school year. CHANGE is the ANSWER."
