So you want to be in AVID?
Thank you for your interest in the AVID program at James W. Martin High School! In Freshman and Sophomore AVID, we will work on academic and personal goals while adjusting to high school, focus on analytical writing, and learn how to participate in collegial discussions properly. We will refine study skills, test-taking, note-taking and research techniques to help you be more successful in advanced-level high school and college courses. Tutorials will occur on a regular basis and there will be a college field trip. Please understand that AVID is a class with activities and assignments that are graded but these activities and assignments will support your learning in other classes.

If you need assistance or have questions that the AVID teacher on your campus cannot answer, feel free to contact RJ Williams, the Martin AVID Coordinator. Once you become a member, you will be able to join the Martin AVID Edmodo group and ask questions throughout the summer and the 2016-2017 school year!
