The teaching style at AVA is based on very small classes.  Most classes in the elementary school are less than 12 students, while many of the classes in the High School will enroll only 6-8 students.  The small group instruction facilitates daily interaction between students and interaction within the class where every student is involved.  Most of our students love their classes and love the school.
