Open Quote Moved to Avon from out of state. Looked at local towns and thought this smaller district among the Farmington valley would be a good trade off versus larger schools in adjacent towns. What a mistake. Teachers are helpful but have their hands tied by the asst principle and principle. My child has mild LD and was not accommodated correctly. Superintendent was retiring and did not want to rock the boat. If you child is Autistic, this may work out for you. Beware though this district does what it wants, not what is needed for the kids or parents. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
