We are an AVID Classroom
What is AVID?
“No one can predict the future, but all students can be prepared to thrive in the world that awaits them.”
Advancement (Making Progress)
Individual (My own)
Determination (Hard Work)
AVID students develop the academic habits they will need to be successful in middle school, high school, college, and beyond in an age-appropriate and challenging way. AVID students practice organization, study skills, communication, and self-advocacy. Students learn to take structured notes and ask and answer high-level questions that go beyond routine answers. AVID classrooms promote critical thinking, problem solving, creativity, communication, and teambuilding through activities such as Socratic Seminars, Simulations, Collaborative Study Groups, peer tutoring, and Philosophical Chairs. These activities honor the way students learn best.
All students need to learn how to learn. Notetaking, studying, and organizing assignments are all skills that must be taught and practiced to perfect. Students will be taught how to master these and other academic behaviors that will help them succeed in school and life.
