    What does AVID look like at MMS?

    AVID is a schoolwide program. All students have access to an agenda and are required to write down weekly events and important dates. At MMS, teachers are using AVID strategies in every classroom to ensure learning for all.

    We currently have an AVID elective class in 7th grade and will offer the AVID elective in both 7th and 8th grades next school year.  Our plan is to have an AVID elective class in all three grade levels by the 2020-2021 school year.
