Advancement Via Individual Determination
The AVID Elective class targets students in the academic middle–B, C, and even D students–with the desire to go to college and the willingness to work hard. Typically, they will be the first in their families to attend college, and come from groups traditionally underrepresented in higher education. These are students who are capable of completing rigorous curriculum but are falling short of their potential.
AVID places these students on the college track, requiring them to enroll in the most rigorous courses that are appropriate for them, such as Honors classes. To support them in the rigorous coursework, AVID students learn organizational and study skills, develop critical thinking, learn to ask probing questions, receive academic help from peers and college tutors, and participate in enrichment and motivational activities to make their college dreams reality.AVID Program Director - Mrs. Lewis, email: email@example.com Grade AVID Teacher - Mrs. McIndoe, email: amberL_mcindoe@chino.k12.ca.us8th Grade AVID Teacher - Mr. Horsley, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
