Thank you very much for your interest in Avoca School District 37!  This is an outstanding educational community!  I feel extremely fortunate to have been entrusted by the Board of Education and the Avoca community to serve as superintendent of this impressive school district where students, staff, parents and community members unite in a powerful partnership for learning.

The mission of Avoca School District 37 is to provide an education that maximizes the unique potential of each child.  These simple, yet powerful, words aptly express our commitment to each Avoca student. Through a dynamic and challenging curriculum, engaging instruction, creative opportunities, a talented staff, involved parents, and eager students, the Avoca school community brings this mission to life on a daily basis.

The District symbol is a lighthouse that shines in two directions. Avoca seeks to be a beacon of light for each child and also a lighthouse district for the educational community beyond our borders. With the help of the entire school community, we will accomplish all we set out to achieve. To the top right of this page you will find several important  “District Links” to assist you in navigating the website.  The links on the bottom right of this page share some of the latest information regarding our school district.  The Avoca School District 37 Mission and Beliefs are the “lighthouse” concepts that guide all that we do, and therefore lead off the list.  Their importance cannot be underestimated.  Below that are a few links that document our progress as we strive to fulfill our Mission.

I thank you for taking the time to learn more about Avoca School District 37.  Whether you are a prospective parent considering a move to our community, a current Avoca School District community member or just someone interested in the field of education, this web site will prove to be an enlightening source of information!
