SPARK

At Apple Valley High School we promote a Safe, Proud, Accountable, and Respectful campus, which we believe make us Kin. Since AVHS began implementing Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS), we have seen a drastic decline in discipline. We are reteaching our expectations and students are learning what it means to be a Sundevil!

In the years since implementation we have given out over $3,000 rewards, certificates and acknowledgements for students exemplifying what it means to be the SPARK!
