    Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) - weblink

    AVID is a college-prep curricular program for students in the academic middle in which students take an elective class held within the regular school day that provides support, academic monitoring, and tutoring. In addition to the AVID elective class, each AVID student is required to take at least one honors or IB course.

    Dual Enrollment is offered as a partnership with Maricopa Community Colleges; students can take college-level math, science, and English courses that will count both for high school and college credit.
