Students participate in AVID, which is a national college readiness system that targets students in the academic middle who show a strong desire to attend college and are determined to work hard. The class, which consists of 21 sophomores chosen from more than 80 applicants, is graded and credited just like any other course. It teaches academic strategies but also focuses on providing social and emotional help for the students enrolled.
