AVID’s mission is to prepare students for college.  AVID is not only a program, it is a lifestyle.  It’s a student’s future.  AVID takes a student on a journey to reach his/her goals in life.  It is a program to help students develop good habits to succeed in college.  As a result, AVID is a program to advance oneself to pursue his/her college dreams.

by Bryanna S.

AVID, a national program that is over 30 years old, is offered in 6th, 7th, and 8th Grade at Sussman Middle School.  In 6th Grade the class is one-semester long, in 7th and 8th the elective is for a full year.  Students may take the class all three years if they like.  Students attend fieldtrips to colleges, work with college-age tutors twice a week in tutorial, practice math and English skills, and learn important organization skills to help students do well in school.

  7. Today we did our tutorials alone. I liked it because you can explore different ways that other people do math problems. The one thing that I didn’t like was that you didn’t have anyone to correct you I you got the answer wrong.
