Toki MIddle School proudly implemented the AVID program for the first time during the 2012-2013 school year and became an official AVID certified school the following year. We have two sections of AVID (7th and 8th grade) and both are working hard to prepare students for high school and beyond. These classes mirror the AVID courses already being offered at all of the high schools in the Madison Metropolitan School District. 

Additionally, many of the teachers at Toki use AVID strategies in their classrooms, including Cornell notes, collaborative inquiry, and organizational skills. The school-based AVID site team and AVID students work in conjunction to expose all Toki students to AVID's proven strategies for success!
