  • Greetings,

    We have created this Quality Profile to demonstrate our diligent stewardship in educating more than 9,400 students. We know parents value excellence beyond the classroom so we are committed to providing an enriched learning environment which prepares students for their futures. The Avon Experience includes community service, project-based learning (particularly in STEAM subjects), participation and accomplishments in the arts as well as increased engagement in Advanced Placement (AP), dual credit college classes and career and technical education.

    THE WHOLE CHILD

    Our student's jourey focuses on the whole child. The Avon Experience recognizes and nurtures students' uniqueness.  Our student population is diverse with more than 70 languages spoken in the home.  Our goal is to ensure that each child is healthy, safe, engaged, supported, and challenged.

  • Service to Others Picture
    SERVICE TO OTHERS  
     As part of the Avon Experience, ACSC Students Perform Hundreds of Hours of Community Service Annually
     

    The entire ACSC family is dedicated to serving others. The Mary Lee Maier Community Pantry—created by our teachers—receives donations from our community to serve those in need. The entire junior class at AHS annually participates in the Junior Day of Caring providing community service throughout Hendricks County. Over 45 clubs at AHS have a community service component.

    Our elementary students visit and spread cheer to our elderly community members. The AHS Interact Club and several schools collect thousands of pairs of shoes that are donated nationally and internationally. ACSC elementary students create and deliver holiday cards to soldiers and those in assisted care facilities and help pack boxes with the Indiana Pacers Hoops for Troops.

     Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts perform community service projects at ACSC and the Outdoor Learning Center

    EFFICIENT
     We Do More with Less
     
     

    Supporting The Avon Experience requires efficient management of resources. Through the efforts of the 2015 Efficiency Task Force, $350,000 in savings was realized. The district has received two MSP (Math Science Partnership) grants for $250,000 each and propane bus grants for more than $83,000. Our educators write and receive multiple grant awards from businesses and endowments every year. We have many partners who support our work.

    Current funding from the State of Indiana for ACSC is only slightly higher than it was in 2009! As a result, compared to 2010, we have 27 fewer teachers, six fewer administrators, 20 fewer custodians and 931 more students! But ACSC has been proactive by restructuring debt, operating with fewer staff and incurring a zero percent medical insurance premium increase in the past two years!
