The Choice is Clear
As a parent, you have an obligation to make sure your child receives the best education possible in a safe, caring, inspiring, dynamic and rigorous environment. You have a choice on where to make that happen. Aspen View Academy is that choice. AVA produces well-rounded students that are ready to be lifelong learners. One of our main goals is to prepare students to be successful in high school and beyond. We work hard everyday to fulfill the AVA mission and vision.
AVA graduates are flourishing in high school. We receive feedback from former students who tell us that they were so well-prepared for high school. They are receiving high grades and many are taking honors classes. We also hear comments from graduates who mention that, while at AVA, they did not understand why we held students to such high academic standards or why we held them accountable. After a semester or full year of high school, they now see the light. They see that everything they learned at AVA has challenged them to perform at a high level and has lead to a very successful transition to high school. The perception that being in a small school environment as a drawback is not the case. In fact, it is a strength for AVA and one that will benefit all students as they enter high school. While our graduating students do enroll at quite a few different high schools, a majority of our students attend Castle View or Douglas County. They can be comfortable knowing that they will be entering high school with a core group of classmates from AVA.
I completely understand that kids will be kids and want to go to another school because they think it might be easier or that they might have more neighborhood friends there; however, the bottom line is that kids go to school to learn and to be ready for college. Completing middle school at AVA has proven it will have your child well-prepared to be successful in high school and, ultimately, ready for college.
The quality of the AVA teaching staff is undeniable. All of our teachers, especially our middle school teachers understand what our students need to be successful in high school. They set high expectations, but also provide the tools and resources for students to be successful. You will not find a more dedicated, committed and engaged staff than the staff at AVA.
