We are pleased to be an certified AVID Elementary School. AVID stands for Advancement Via Individual Determination. AVID is a college readiness system that focuses on teaching students the hidden skills they need to be successful in college and beyond. All students at our school are taught how to organize their materials through use of organizational tools including folders, binders, book boxes, cubbies and back packs. Students learn to manage their time through the use of agenda planners and monthly calendars. Students are encouraged to operate with a growth mindset, to set goals for learning and to reflect on their learning every day.
