  • I attended AVCS for four years. I'm a highly intelligent individual.
    This school is terrible. Flat out terrible.
    My Algebra II teacher didn't know what she was teaching-- we had a Junior trying to teach us as HE learned the subject. The truth of the matter is that some of the teachers are either poorly-qualified to teach, or simply not qualified at all.
    Discipline? Across the spectrum. Once, a teacher locked his entire class in the room, into the next period, because he was mad about something or other. Another crazy teacher started screaming at his class until he was red in the face and dripping sweat. At the other end was the teacher who was so nice we conned her into letting us go to the computer lab after we finished our classwork, because the comp teacher was so naive he didn't realize we had the entire network running Unreal Tournament 16-player deathmatches.
    The office staff, mentioned in another review, is a bunch of soccer moms. They get in everyone's business. Not in that "guiding hand, sharing of wisdom" kind of way. More like that "this is what I believe you should do, and if you don't, I'm going to make your school experience hell on earth."
    They also play favorites, blatantly. My best friend and I broke the same rule at the same time. I got suspended for a week. He got talked to and released back to class. Why? He'd been there since elementary, and I was on scholarship.
    The most important people to the school are the Foreign Exchange students, and rightfully so. They finance the majority of the school's budget because they pay ridiculous amounts of money to go there. However, these students are treated very poorly. Not inhumanely, but I wouldn't want to be one of them. Former dorm parents have espoused to me their shock at the way things were run in the dorms.
    Let's see, what else? Oh, most high schools have some semblance of a guidance counselor, college-prep kind of staff. Non-existent, at least when I was there. I graduated second in my class, and was never once exposed to college preparation, apart from my SAT. Don't get me started on their so-called "AP" offerings-- they're sad to the point that I wouldn't feel comfortable claiming credit for them.
    Don't let them con you with their generosity, either. It only extends as far as your checkbook and willingness to do things for them. A friend of mine got kicked out one month before graduating because of tuition. His dad couldn't pay it, he was late. I understand that. However, if you're gonna boot someone from High School, don't do it so late into the year he has no choice but to either go through another year or get his GED. That is cold.
    If you or your kids end up going to this school, be prepared to experience two-facedness, bigotry, ignorance, incompetence, and stubbornness on levels that should out-and-out shock you.
    Oh, and we have a saying for one of the administration: "Heil Hester!"
