Superintendent's Corner

I am not convinced that there are words to describe it. Exciting. Incredulous. Overwhelming. Absolutely FANTASTIC! 

Tuesday, September 30, we received the official notice that Avalon School had been designated a National Blue Ribbon School by the U.S. Department of Education. At 12:30, I announced to our student body, teachers and staff that we had earned the most prestigious designation. It is symbolic of the best of the best of the 100,000+ U.S. schools. 

As the announcement spread, one could hear the cheers from the classrooms and hallways. Students, teachers, staff and administration hugging and smiling and yes, even tears of pride for what this accolade truly symbolizes – hard work, challenges, support and a commitment to excellence and student learning. Not an arbitrary award but one based on five years of data and a detailed curriculum for PK3 – 12th grades - a comprehensive curriculum that takes our students to the next step, the next level and beyond. 

I extend my sincere congratulations to our students, our faculty, staff, administration, board of trustees and parents for their dedication to the education of our students. WE DID IT! Together we make a difference! 

Best regards, 

Dr. David Del Bosque, Supt.
