  • I love Avondale. I went to Avondale when I was a child. The majority of the children that attend Avondale are in poverty but the teachers and staff care about the children and go beyond expectations to help them in every aspect of their lifes. I had 3 children that went there. I managed to keep my oldest there from k-5. Unfortunately I had to change my 2 other children into swcs this year. I regret this deeply. My children miss Avondale as do I. My children have only been attending Harmon elementary for 2 1/2 wks and they are trying to seperate them into two different schools due to a third grade overflow. I am not a happy parent that is dealing with Southwestern city schools. I give them a thumbs down
