What is AVID?
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 two-fold system
- A direct support structure that takes place during the regular school day.
- A school-wide approach to curriculum and rigor.
We utilize the 5 components of WICOR in order to prepare students to be successful in all of their classes.
