    The quality of teachers is excellent and particularly Jill Seitz who runs the media center. She is so enthusiastic about her work and I have observed her patience and kindness with every student who needs help. They are lucky to have her and all the great faculty at Avalon.

    Avalon is a school that has a family feeling - a sense of extended family where everyone is watching out for and helping the kids. The teachers are willing to help the students and the families to have academic success and success in their family life as well. Here the learning goes beyond the classroom and reaches out to the family as well as the child.
