AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination)
AVID is an academic program designed to provide support to students who are in the “academic” middle. This elective is currently being offered to students in grades 6 through 12. AVID students apply to be in the program and actually interview with teachers before being accepted into the elective.
These students want to work harder and be more successful, committing themselves to a variety of obligations-including good attendance, appropriate behavior, and 1-2 hours of homework per night (an approximate total for all classes).
