AVID Program

We are an AVID school! Every day at Heather Glen, students are receiving a rigorous education. Each week teachers meet both as grade levels and vertically (within content areas) to plan and bridge any gaps that may exist. Our ultimate goal is to build lifelong learners. Thank you for partnering with us to ensure each student is successful.

So, what is AVID? AVID:

  • Teaches skills and behaviors for academic success
  • Provides intensive support with tutorials and strong student/teacher relationships
  • Creates a positive peer group for students
  • Develops a sense of hope for personal achievement gained through hard work and determination

The AVID Program is a K-12 system to prepare students in academics for four-year college eligibility. It has a proven track record in bringing out the best in students, and in closing the achievement gap. AVID stands for Advancement Via Individual Determination.
