We are AVID!

AVID is an acronym for Advancement Via Individual Determination. AVID is an elective class where students will develop and reinforce attitudes, skills, and knowledge to successfully enter and complete a college prep academic program in high school. Students will learn and apply study skills and learning strategies to improve performance in the content areas: Note taking, outlining, writing, speaking, reading, test strategies and the use of technology. Students are required to enroll in a rigorous course of study, maintain satisfactory grades, and outstanding citizenship while participating in AVID. AVID students will participate in an interactive tutor process to enhance and support them in their rigorous coursework.
