    "Not a morning goes by where my daughter does not want to go to school. The school has a very intimate feel, and the resources are beyond many CPS schools all around. I moved from the city, and have not regretted it one day! Again the best part is my child LOVES going to school!"

    "My children passed out of Avoca and they had the best experience. The teachers are very approachable, not only do they have time for any feedback, concerns or suggestions; they will proactively get back to you on the actions they have taken to address your concerns or suggestions. The small class sizes (16 in many cases) give the teachers the opportunity to give your child the individual attention required. The orchestra program starts in first grade and the gifted program is extremely well run."

    "We have two children currently attending Avoca West Elementary.The school is culturally diverse,with small class sizes and outstanding technology resources.District #37 has been for many,many years one of the best in Chicago's North Shore area. Sadly,former principal,now current superintendent never really connected with the students,and some of the teachers he hired should be re-looked at.Overall,the good still outweighs the bad."

    "Avoca School District #37 is really outstanding in nearly every way. The leadership, administration, School Board, and teachers are all highly collaborative and competent. We have 3 children, the oldest in college now and two in middle school. They have all excelled and thrived in this school district. The environment is like a private school with teachers who really care about what and how your child learns. The education is so comprehensive with its academics, outstanding technology resources, fantastic musical and visual art programs, great physical education classes, extra-curricular programs including 4 time Illinois state Science Olympiad championships, sports teams, and more. Thanks Avoca and Marie Murphy School Board, administration, staff, and teachers for all that you give our children!!!!"

    "This is an amazing school. Feels like a private school but runs on public funding. The teaching is outstanding, the technology is way ahead of the curve, and the atmosphere is warm and friendly. Our kids get lots of individualized attention for their needs from teaching assistants, and the principal treats every family like they are really special."
