AVID Program



AVID’s mission is to close the achievement gap by preparing all students for college readiness and success in a global society.

GHS is a proud AVID site, excited to be sharing the experience with our current 9th through 12th-grade AVID students.


We have a total of 8 sections for this 2019-2020 school year with over 200 students in our program.


Attached is a short video describing "What is AVID".
