Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID)

RMS prepares students for a global community through the Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) program. AVID is a college readiness elective designed to help students in the academic middle—especially those who will be the first in their family to attend college—prepare for and succeed in college. AVID accelerates student learning using research-based methods for instruction and motivation to succeed. AVID is both an everyday elective and a building-wide initiative, incorporating AVID strategies throughout the day for all students. RMS students are college bound thanks to the wonderful work of our AVID teachers.

AVID is a program for students who have a GPA of 2.0-3.5 and a strong desire to go to a four-year college or university. Although AVID serves all students, it focuses on the least served students in the academic middle. Students in the program take the AVID class at the same time they are enrolled in rigorous courses. The class focuses on writing, critical thinking, collaboration, reading, note-taking, study skills and college/career/motivational activities. Students are expected to keep an organized binder and take notes in every class every day of the week. Tutors are in the AVID class twice per week.
