Welcome to the Palmer Middle School AVID website! Here you can learn about AVID, find out about upcoming events, and apply for the program.
AVID stands for Advancement Via Individual Determination and is a year-long college readiness program designed for students in the academic middle. AVID’s mission is to close the achievement gap by preparing all students for college readiness and success in a global society.
In AVID, we participate in tutorials/peer tutoring twice a week (Tuesdays and Thursdays), we have weekly binder checks on organizational skills and our note-taking skills, and take college field trips to prepare for our future. We also develop our WICOR (Writing, Inquiry, Collaboration, Organization, and Reading) skills each day to ensure our success in our academic classes. Everything we do in AVID prepares us for the future!
