When did PW fail its inspection?? Since PW failed its food inspection, does that mean it is closed until it passes??

    You wouldn't want to buy from a place that has public sanitation issues. Wait awhile, then when it opens back up---get some fries too.

  • CICS Avalon reviewed by a teacher

    I work at Avalon, and I don't think I've met a more satisfied and passionate teaching staff. I respect the teachers and school leaders so much. Clearly I'm a little biased since I work here, but I'm also thrilled to see how much students are learning and growing. Three years ago, Avalon had the lowest CPS rating, and after many changes in the school, Avalon is one of the fastest growing schools in the city. I'm so excited to kick off an even better new year!

    CICS Avalon has truly improved significantly over the past two years. The school went from having approximately 23 fights within three months to only 1 or 2 a year. The academics improved significantly! Change isn't easy, but the changes have made the school better for children. When children perform well on assessments they increase their likelihood of getting accepted into a better high school and college. We use data to drive instruction, because it matters. Teachers have to know if students have mastered the content, so that we can reteach. CICS Avalon focuses on best practice, and we implement techniques that are proven. If you want to be developed into a great teacher, then this is the place to be!

  • CICS Avalon reviewed by a teacher

    Since Victory took over management of Avalon two years ago the atmosphere at the school has really changed. Teachers and staff as well as students and families are not shown respect by administration. Morale is low and turnover is high, both among teachers and students. Teachers are given zero control over what or how they teach and there is a heavy focus on test preparation. Everything is about appearances and the students scoring well enough on assessments to make the administration look good, no matter the cost to students. Students do not have recess and are rarely if ever given any time to socialize or engage in creative activities. There is an extremely strict discipline policy enforced even in the primary grades. There is no school council or PTA for parents to get involved in decisions made about the school, and the general opinion among the administration is that it is a "school of choice" and if parents/teachers don't like it, then they have the "choice" to go somewhere else. I would not recommend this school as a place to work or send your children.
