AVID

 

Beginning this Fall, Vista del Valle students in Grades 3-6 were recognized as a "Showcase" school for the accelerated learning and effective instruction that is occurring as a result of using the AVID College Readiness System.  On November 6th, teachers and administrators from throughout Southern California will visited Vista del Valle Elementary School to learn more about our success.  Advancement Via Individual Determination, is a college readiness system for elementary through higher education that is designed to increase school-wide learning and performance.  This year Vista AVID students visited the campus of UCLA to participate in their "I'm Going to College" Fair to learn more about the university experience.  As part of this experience, they also got the opportunity to attend a football game at the Rose Bowl!

The results of the AVID program speak for itself! AVID students are more likely than their peers to successfully complete rigorous academic courses, with more than 73 percent of the 2012 AVID seniors taking at least one higher-level course (such as AP) and 91% completed courses required for admission into four-year colleges or universities (compared to the U.S. National Average of 36%).

While others talk about what should be done to prepare students for college, AVID is doing it. Vista del Valle was excited to be recognized as an "AVID Showcase School" in only it's second year of implementation.  Teachers and Administrators from across California visited our school to learn more about preparing students for college and career.  We are so excited to provide this opportunity for our students at Vista del Valle.
