Avondale High School serves grades 9-12 by providing an exceptional educational experience and opportunities for skill building as a steady foundation before students embark on their next chapter after high school. Avondale High School has many innovative offerings, like the Rochester Early College program that enables students entering 10th and 11th grade to earn an Associate Degree for free while attending high school. We also provide a rigorous curriculum, in both standard courses and Advanced Placement courses, to help accelerate student growth. In furthering our focus on our student’s needs, we provide a 9th grade transition course that supports the emotional, social, and academic needs of our 9th grade students during the transition from middle school to high school.

Get Involved at Avondale High School

Being a part of a club or athletic team connects students to something bigger than themselves.  Through involvement in school beyond the classroom, students meet new people with shared interest; learn new skills, build knowledge and gain experience; explore interests that may lead to career choices; and improve communication, problem-solving and team-work skills and build confidence.  Involvement promotes active participation in improving one's life and contributes to the improvement of other's lives.
