The AVID Program
One of the major areas of focus here at Upland is to increase the number of students who meet the requirements upon graduation to enter four-year colleges. We recently implemented an AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) program in our junior high schools, creating a seamless transition to the AVID program at Upland High School and helping prepare all students for college and other postsecondary education opportunities.
We embrace AVID’s research-based curriculum and strategies as our junior high and high school students develop critical thinking, literacy, and math skills across all content areas.
The Guiding Principle
AVID has one guiding principle: “Hold students accountable to the highest standards, provide academic and social support, and they will rise to the challenge.”
