    "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."

    "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."
