I am a former student of the entire Avon public school system (k-12) so I have a pretty good insight about AHS. The school has definitely been on the decline in the past few years in terms of quality of education. The reason AHS graduates go onto some of the top schools in the nation is because it's the student's handwork and intelligence that gets them there. Not the guidance of the teaching staff. The language programs at AHS are lacking compared to other public schools in the Farmington Valley region. The music department is actually pretty strong with a number of outlets for students to pursue their passions in. AHS's sports teams are intense and time consuming. As a former triple athlete there were a number of instances where sports had to come before school. AHS sports (especially soccer field hockey basketball and lax) do not take themselves lightly. The AP department is extremely lacking. I felt cheated once entering college that so many students from other schools had been offered twice the variety of AP classes to chose from. AHS is a good school because the students are smart not because of the stellar education once receives from here.
