AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) is a school-wide approach that changes student's lives by making the shift to a more equitable, student-centered approach. The power of AVID is the ability to impact students in the AVID Elective class and all students throughout the campus. AVID can have an effect on the entire school by providing classroom activities, teaching practices, and academic behaviors that can be incorporated into any classroom to improve engagement and success for all students. Through AVID we work to close the opportunity gap, so we can prepare all students for college, careers, and life.
