Welcome to Avondale Elementary School District #44

We are proud to offer diverse academic programs for our students and families. While each school site is unique, there is the core, overarching mission that every student will grow as a thinker, problem solver, and communicator to pursue a future without limits. 

A Treasure Hunter is a caring adult committed to searching for all talents, intelligence and skills that exist in all children and youth. All children are capable of success...no exceptions! In this video our Superintendent, Dr. Betsy Hargrove, explains just one way that we promote Kids at Hope and live as Treasure Hunters every day! Click here to learn more.
