    "Avoca is an excellent school with outstanding leadership that is open to addressing and resolving issues. It also has the most diverse student population on the north shore, which I view as a positive. Class sizes are small and the staff is dedicated to our children. The environment is so positive that moving up to high school can be a culture shock as New Trier is teacher-centric rather than student-centric environment of Avoca."

    "School District 37 is a wonderful district. The staff is dedicated and encouraging. Working with students tirelessly before and after school, and even attending student sporting events. This staff clearly enjoys what they do. The class sizes are small. The students are a very close student body. They seem to look out for one another. This district does not tend to face the social problems of other area schools. They are accepting and compassionate toward their peers.The students tend to graduate as confident, prepared young adults. The district offers an impressive academic program and unbelievable technology resources. I wouldn't dream of sending my children anywhere else. It is a unique combination of four North Shore suburbs (Winnetka, Wilmette, Northfield and Glenview). If you don't know this district you should stop in and observe. It is truly exceptional!"

    "Avpca West School District 37 is the best kept secret on the North Shore. It is like receieving a private school education. It offers amazingly small class sizes, school owned bus service, numerous academic and social clubs. They also have interscholastic sports and theater. Students attend many school trips. They have an amazing technology program that is years ahaead of the surrounding North Shore districts. Each student from fifth grade on is given their own Macintosh lap-top computer in which they are able to take home at night with them. They are able to complete assignements, take notes, and learn advanced computer programs. The teachers are always willing to go the extra mile working with students, as well as being at extracurricular events to cheer the kids on. The school is strict with enforcing their policies, making students responsible, respectful adults. This school has truly been a treasured gift."

    "I am a college professor. I grew up and graduated from the Chicago Public School system. The average class size is 18. It is a public school but it feels like a private school. My children's education far exceeds my dreams for them. My taxes are $7,000 a year. You can double them I wouldn't care. I have educated four children from Avoca then onto New Trier which has wonderful oppportunities. Avoca is small and nuturing and has an 8th grade graduating class of about 80. If you would ever visit the school it seems all the children are very happy and comfortable in this enviornment. Where in this world can you get a high quality private-like education in a public school? AVOCA"
