Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) is a is a global nonprofit organization that operates with one guiding principle:
Hold students accountable to the highest standards, provide academic and social support, and they will rise to the challenge
Williams prepares students for college and career as Austin's premier AVID elementary campus. AVID Elementary supports the mission and vision to provide a comprehensive model of success for all students from elementary through to higher education and beyond.
So what does AVID do?
- Teaches skills and behaviors for academic success
- Provides intensive support with tutorials and strong student/teacher relationships
- Creates a positive peer group for students
- Develops hope for personal achievement gained through hard work and determination
At Williams, we have been implementing AVID for the past 5 years. We use AVID strategies across grade levels Kindergarten through Fifth.
