Open Quote Avoca went through a lot of changes in last couple of years,not necessarily for the better. The children who are getting the most out from this school now,are the gifted and those with learning difficulties receiving help,average or below average students are not challenged. Avoca is not emphasizing creativity enough,but they do focus on standardized test performance. Despite numerous complains the administration did nothing about the super short lunch period where students always feel rushed, not having enough time to finish their meals. New test scores and District image are more important than the children. Superintendent is more of a self-promoter than an educator. Close Quote

Open Quote Outstanding teachers and programs. School identifies students with math and/or reading difficulties early on and provides additional instruction. Good student/teacher ratios. Administration is very concerned with student wellfare. 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.
