Montebello Park Elementary teaches AVID Strategies

At Montebello Park Elementary, we teach the AVID strategies in all of our third, fourth and fifth grade classes. By teaching academic language, responsible behavior and higher-level thinking at a young age, we are helping our students develop and solidify the academic habits they will need to be successful in middle school, high school, college and beyond. We have college pennants in every classroom and create projects around different college campuses. Our goal is to provide an academic foundation the students will need to be on a path for college and career success.

Tenacity and Resilience

"Only those with tenacity can march in March"

Students who can overcome challenges and approach their learning with resilience, persistence, perseverance, grit and self-regulation are better equipped to achieve success in school and beyond.
