DVMS now offers AVID classes!
AVID stands for Advancement Via Individual Determination
AVID is an elective class that focuses on college readiness.
AVID prepares students for success in high school and college.
AVID teaches students skills such as note-taking, organization, and studying skills.
AVID promotes critical thinking, working in collaborative groups, and peer tutoring.
AVID classes will go on school-sponsored trips to colleges and universities to introduce students to early college programs (start college while in high school) and how to successfully transition from high school to a college/university.
