    I began teaching in a different county and before that I visited dozens of schools as part of my college experience. Apple Valley has a great staff who really care about their students. Compared to the other schools I have seen AVMS truly stands out. I hope to be a teacher here for a long time.

    My son absolutely loves this school! If you're planning on moving to this school its worth it. I live about 20 minutes from the school and I was a bit worried that it'd be too far but I actually never have to go because my son takes the bus and there arent any conferences.

    AVMS is a school full of opportunity and learning. Their sports are enjoyable and the teachers are amazing. They understand and help your child through everything. Your child will be challenged but in a great way. My child loved the clubs and extracurricular activities. He also learned a lot of manners and positive ways to behave.

    I have been more impressed with the school than I thought I would. I think they should be more strict on bulleying and kids picking on other kids. To me that is zero tollerance.
