How has AVID helped me this school-year?
Feedback from our 2020-2021 AVID ROCKSTARS:
"Avid has helped me during virtual learning by giving me guidance and helping me with my classes. It also has given me a space to go for help when I'm struggling and work through the questions. Overall it has just better my virtual learning."
"Avid helped me during virtual learning by keeping me organized and prioritizing the important stuff like my homework. It also helped me with my teamwork skills, when we do TRF's and escape rooms we socialize with other classmates."
"AVID has really helped me with time management and learning new ways to stay focused and motivated. It has especially helped me note-taking. I think that this is important because If I hadn't learned these things I would have had an even harder time at virtual learning. I also feel very supported by my AVID class."
