    I was a parent volunteer at Avon. Although the school wasnt so great before Ms.Cooper is definitely getting it together. The school has great structure and amazing teachers who actually care for the students.

    The schools is safe and the principal is trying her very best to make changes and turn the school around. In that type of neighborhood she has a difficult job. I hope that she keeps up the good work.
