Announcing AVID

Our school is implementing AVID in our 7-8th Grades. The students will experience many BIG changes! 
  • Starts by engaging students in the classrooms in new ways.
  • Teaches a new organization system for classwork and homework.
  • Students volunteer for a class that starts a "highway to college".
  • Blends well with AVID at our high schools: AHS, FHS, and RHS.
