Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID)

Arroyo is an AVID school. AVID—Advancement Via Individual Determination—fosters a safe and open culture, high expectations for teachers and students, and collaboration in all classrooms. AVID students reflect and question while mastering content rather than just repeating and memorizing. Our students work together to problem solve and to change the level of discourse in the classroom as they prepare for success. Students are taught to articulate what they don’t understand and learn how to seek out the resources they need. By teaching critical thinking, inquiry, and self-advocacy, AVID educators empower students to own their learning. We believe that all students need to learn how to learn. Note-taking, studying, and organizing assignments are all skills that must be taught and practiced as part of our AVID skill focus.
