Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID)

  • The Duarte High School AVID program is designed to prepare students for college while in high school. AVID teaches students critical thinking skills which apply to all classes across the campus. AVID students are immersed in the research based WICOR strategies (Writing, Inquiry, Collaboration, Organization, Reading). The AVID class is open to students in 9th through 12th grades. Most selected AVID students are the first in their families to go to college. Students have weekly tutorials with college students to enhance their critical thinking and reading skills.
