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 2020-2021 school year with over 200 students in our program.

 Attached is our senior 2020 video: "AVID 2020".
