    "We could not be happier with Avoca West. I believe the staff goes above and beyond for the kids at school, and for this reason my kids quickly "caught up" after moving in from another district. All the extras of this school district make it a great place to be."

    "My daughter LOVES her school, loves going everyday. You hear kids talk about their teachers like they are their family. They see and know when a child needs extra attention with their class work, and or behavior issues, and make a plan ASAP. Great communications between parents and teachers. Starting in the first grade - 5th they have spanish language class, and technology class. Not sure hat grade but all the kids get Mac lap tops to take home. The involvement of the parents is pretty stunning too. Again the best part is that my child loves going to school everyday! They also have an aftercare program which is also excellent, and very helpful for working families."

    "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!!!!"
