AVID is offered at McCormick Junior High School. AVID stands for advancement via individual determination- but what happens in the class? AVID tutor Courtney Paul says,”there are learning skills that are going to help them in high school, college, and maybe even in the work place.” AVID prepares kids for the future. Ms. Paul  spoke about how AVID kids learn about colleges and even research  colleges they are interested in attending. She says students acquire skills like organization and public speaking. Students are required carry around an AVID binder, keeping all class work organized,  and learn to take notes in a specific way. Students help one another with homework and learn to ask questions to get to answers. Teamwork, critical thinking, and organization- these are the skills that are necessary for a successful future. If you are interested in taking AVID then please speak with Mr. Kirkbride in the counseling office.
