  • AVID’s mission is to close the achievement gap by preparing all students for college readiness and success in a global society.
    AVID is a school-wide system that prepares students to succeed in rigorous curriculum using the WICOR methods - writing, inquiry, collaboration, organization, and reading.  AVID students learn how to ask higher level questions and how to think deeply.  AVID promotes a college- and career-readiness culture throughout the school.
    AVID Elementary
    By teaching and reinforcing academic behaviors and higher-level thinking at a young age, AVID Elementary teachers create a ripple effect in later grades. Elementary students develop the academic habits they will need to be successful in middle school, high school, and college, in an age-appropriate and challenging way. Students learn about organization, study skills, communication, and self-advocacy. AVID Elementary students take structured notes and answer and ask high-level questions that go beyond routine answers. Teachers provide the academic foundation students need to be on a path for college and career success. AVID Elementary closes the opportunity gap before it begins.
    AVID Secondary
    The power of AVID Secondary is the impact on students in both the AVID Elective class and for students across the campus. Teachers can incorporate AVID skills and strategies in any classroom to help students to become college- and career-ready. The Secondary AVID Elective Class is designed for students who have the desire and determination to work toward attaining college- and career-oriented goals. Students in the AVID Elective class may be the first in their family to attend college, may be from populations that have been traditionally underserved in four-year colleges/universities, and/or have special circumstances and need additional academic support.  The AVID elective class adheres to the AVID Standards, which include the domains of Student Agency, Rigorous Academic Preparedness, and Opportunity Knowledge.
