Multilingual Learners

map showing Avon student home countries

Welcome to Avon Schools. We have assembled the resources and information on this page to inform and equip the families of multilingual learners for their child's educational experience at Avon Schools. 

Over 11% of our 10,000-student district enrollment is comprised of students who speak English as a second language. In fact, there are more than 90 different languages spoken in the homes of Avon Students. This map shows how widely distributed the nations of origin and native languages of our students are. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us.
