Principal’s Message

Seventh grade students weaving at the Lowell Mills.

Dear Auburn Village School Students and Families:

Welcome to Auburn Village School! We are excited to have you in our school and look forward to learning and growing together. Our school provides kindergarten through eighth graders with engaging opportunities for individual growth in academic, social, and emotional areas. We offer a robust academic program that is extended and enriched with numerous school-wide activities, as well as co-curricular offerings. The school community is strengthened by the active involvement of parents, volunteers, and the entire school community. We are fortunate to have a beautiful learning environment designed specifically for the kindergarten through eighth grade environment.

Our professional and support staff work hard every day to create a dynamic and supportive learning environment for all AVS students. Our administrative team is composed of a principal, two assistant principals: elementary and middle school, a student services director, and a math coordinator. The school has thirty-three homeroom/advisory teachers, a unified arts team, special education teachers, two reading specialists, an ELL tutor, and two guidance counselors. We also have a dedicated support staff consisting of special education paraprofessionals, a media specialist, nutrition services and custodial staff, and our school administrative assistants, that all enrich our learning environment.

The Auburn Village School’s Mission and Core Values provide the guiding principles for our educational efforts. In order for Auburn Village School to serve as a positive and effective learning environment for each child, we encourage everyone to work together as a team. We believe that providing a climate and culture that appreciates all learning styles inspires varied and rigorous learning experiences. It truly does “take a village to raise a child,” and we are confident that the AVS staff, working with all school community members, positively influence learning outcomes. As students, parents, or residents of Auburn, this is your school. Your active participation, input, concerns, and assistance are important in helping provide each of Auburn’s children with the best education that meets their individual needs.

We look forward to working with you during this school year! If you have any questions pertaining to your child’s education or health and safety as it relates to school, please contact the school. Thank you as always for your support.
