Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) is what our program at McFadden Intermediate is all about. Our classes are made up of students who have college on their mind. They have the determination to learn as much as they possibly can, so that one day, they will have the skills and knowledge needed to be successful citizens in a global society. AVID WICOR lesson teach students additional academic knowledge and skills that help them to advance in their core classes. Additionally, they are also taught organizational skills, time management, as well as positive interaction techniques to engage with their teachers and their peers.
One of the greatest advantages our AVID students enjoy is participating in AVID Tutorials, twice a week; this inquiry based, collaborative group strategy helps our students understand and solve their own problems in their core academic classes.
