Selecting a school for your child is perhaps one of the most important decisions a parent can make. Identifying and understanding the key differences between schools is an essential part of that decision making experience. The best way to begin that process at Avenues is to simply walk through the door and take a first hand look at our “new school of thought.”
To reserve a space at one of our upcoming events, please click on the appropriate link below.
Introductory events are held from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. Tailored toward parents, these events provide a vivid overview of our school, our mission and our vision.
Divisional events are primarily held in the daytime and are intended for parents interested in learning more about a specific division. Divisional events for grades six through 12 are tailored toward both parents and students.
Parent coffees are held in the morning. These events allow parents to engage in discussions with divisional leaders in a smaller group setting.
Early Learning Center and Lower Division tours are available following the divisional events. Applicants will also receive a short tour at the time of the interview.
Upper Division tours are available to applicants and will occur at the time of the interview. Once an application has been submitted, families will receive instructions on scheduling their campus interview.
While most of our international applicants are able to attend either one of these events, we do recognize that distance makes attending more challenging. If you are applying from overseas and are unable to attend one of our events, please contact the admissions team, who will be happy to provide personal assistance.

February 21, 2017 - Writing math problems encourages meaningful communication of mathematics, promotes problem-solving skills, allows for differentiation in the classroom and slows down the thinking process. With this in mind, I showed recently the girls in the Girls Who Math club some examples of the type of problems Ms. Scully’s class of fourth graders were solving in math and we decided to write similar problems with a Valentine’s theme.

February 16, 2017 - Imagine if your typically peaceful day at Avenues was suddenly interrupted by the discovery that a horrible crime had been committed. Much to your surprise, the chief of the newly formed Avenues Department of Investigation then tells you that it would be up to you and your team of forensic scientists to collect the proper evidence and make sure the correct suspect could be brought to justice. This is exactly the scenario that the Avenues 5th graders encountered in science class this fall. More...
