• Welcome to Avon High School, Home of the Orioles!  I hope this website is a useful communication tool to learn more about our school and easily find answers to your questions.

    Avon High School is home to over 3,000 students in grades 9-12.  As I meet with students each year, they quickly acknowledge our size but consider it one of our greatest assets.  We offer a wide range of curricular offerings that meet students’ academic needs and future goals. Students can also find their niche and pursue their interests by participating in numerous extra-curricular activities through the performing arts, clubs and service organizations, academic teams, robotics, and athletics.  Our school is fortunate to have students consistently excel inside and outside of the classroom.

    Our success does not happen by chance. People make the difference. Our staff sets high expectations but also creates an environment where students know they are safe, welcomed, and cared for during their educational journey with us. Our parents are engaged and concerned about their student’s academic progress. They expect high-quality teaching and learning and want to see all of our school programs achieve success.

    I am proud to be an Oriole and call Avon my home. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me.

    GO ORIOLES!
