Summary

The Avon Central School District is a rural community situated just south of Rochester, New York. Established in 1789, Avon enjoys a rich heritage and a great deal of pride in the quality of life residents enjoy. The foundation of this legacy is deeply seeded in the children and their academic, social, and emotional development to become life-long learners and responsible citizens. To support this, the Avon High School has become a widely respected for restorative practices. As a restorative school for over ten years, the school community has focused on building healthy relationships in a productive and respectful way. Students and staff drive this by focusing on the harm their actions may cause others and themselves. By repairing this harm, they understanding and hold themselves accountable for how their actions impact others. As such, AHS staff have partnered with the Rochester-based Partners in Restorative Initiatives (PiRI) to live restoratively and to use circles to assist in this. Every year sophomore students complete this training to lead circles in their classrooms, clubs, and athletic teams.

By including students, AHS has created an environment where students take responsibility for their own interactions and classroom/school climate. Paired with this, the Avon High School has also established a strong Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports program called the Braves Way. To promote strong values and personal character, students and staff strive to be: Brave, Responsible, Activley involved, Value yourself and others, Effort, and Safe.
