We want our students to thrive in their educational journey and beyond. As such, we believe in the widely acknowledged Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) educational program. We've also taken the initiative to adopt Project Based Learning and Design Thinking approaches to education to bring a more authentic and collaborative experience to your student’s curriculum. By bringing real world problems into the classroom, we aim to capture students’ interests while initiating advanced thinking and problem-solving tactics.Our Curriculum
"It has been my privilege throughout my 23 years of teaching in the Avondale School District to work with many commited, creative and supportive staff and administrators. As Avondale teachers, we continually enhance our skills and embrace new teaching strategies so that the learning experience for all students is rich and meaningful. I am proud to be a member of such a dedicated staff."
"Avondale provides a breadth of academic, pre-professional, and athletic opportunities among a vibrant and diverse student body. Experienced teachers and educators promote effective learning and inclusion, and students follow suit: all students feel welcome and find a unique space in the greater community. My Avondale experience, enriched with successes and unforgettable memories, has shaped me into a human being I would have never imagined as a young child. Personally, I have been pushed to realize my full potential through all walks of life during my full Avondale K-12 experience, as have all of my peers. Socially, I have met individuals who I have built life-long friendships with, and, for this, I am truly thankful to be a member of the Avondale Community."
