We are so excited to welcome our newest 6th graders on our campus next year.

One option at Mesa Verde Middle School is AVID. AVID, Advancement Via Individual Determination, which is a college readiness system designed to increase school wide learning and performance.  Mesa Verde Middle School is excited to bring AVID to our 6th grade students as a humanities course!   Students will learn the AVID curriculum to support them in all their academic classes.

We are looking for students who want to succeed and do well in school and interested in college. In AVID, we learn AVID strategies that are proven successful to help students be successful in middle school, high school, and college. We learn about universities and more.

What is AVID?

AVID Humanities is a block class that is Language Arts, Social Studies, and AVID built into one.  In this class your student will learn the California State content Standards for 6th, but it will be built around the AVID curriculum (Reading and Writing, Inquiry, Organization, Note-Taking, High Level Thinking). 

AVID is a class that strives to make kids more prepared in class. AVID helps with improving study skills and helping students stay organized. AVID builds confidence in kids to make them work for their goals and achieve happiness in what they want to do in life. In 6th grade, we are introducing it as a block class with Language Arts and Social Studies. It is designed to support them across their other courses, build an AVID family, and teach them the skills and foundation to not just get into a university but to be successful while in college.
What do we do?
Tutorial with college-aged tutors, Binder Checks, Cornell Notes, Team Building, Inquiry, Field Trips to universities, Community Service, help students build accountability and responsibility.
