Pupil Services

“Prepare the child for the road, not the road for the child.” – Curt Seaburg

The goal of Avon Grove's Department of Pupil Services is to prepare our students for the road ahead. As opposed to knocking down every obstacle our kids face, we strive to prepare our students with the tools, compensation strategies, social, emotional, behavioral and academic aptitude to ensure success on the road of life. Our mission statement calls for all students to be exceptionally well prepared to succeed and lead full and meaningful lives. It is not uncommon for students to require additional supportive services on the road to success.

Avon Grove's Pupil Services Department is dedicated to supporting all of our learners in their personal area of need through our diverse assembly of specialized staff members. School Nurses, Psychologist, School Counselors, Case-managers, Teachers, Social Workers and Administrators all work collaboratively to support our students in achieving success.
