What does AVID look like at Twin Peaks Middle School?

AVID Application DUE 3/26

What is AVID?

AVID is an elective class offered to students who would like to be college and career-ready. In middle school, our task is to prepare our students to succeed in middle school and college preparatory high school classes. In AVID, students are given the support and instruction they need to succeed. The AVID coordinator and elective teacher, along with college tutors and a school site team, provide the necessary support for students who might otherwise not aspire to go to college. By being enrolled in rigorous classes with the tutorial support provided in the AVID elective, student grade point averages rise, increasing numbers of students enroll in higher-level classes, and these students who are typically not involved in the school community come to share a sense of school pride and become role models among their peers. AVID motivates students and provides the skills and confidence to reach their goals.

An AVID student:

  • Has academic potential for a four-year college
  • Has a 2.5—4.0 GPA
  • Wants to be organized & get better grades
  • Has good citizenship and attendance
  • Wants to be a leader

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."
