Community Spotlight

We as a community are extremely proud of the rich tradition the Avon Public Schools has with respect to celebrating the arts and are humbled for receiving such recognition. Our fine arts staff in the area of music and the students whom they serve are fine examples of all that is positive with public education in Avon.
