AVID @ RMHS
RMHS's AVID Program seeks to assist all students in being successful in high school, college, and beyond. AVID is a national program whose mission is to "close the opportunity gap by preparing all students for college readiness and success in a global society". AVID intructional methodologies focus on Writing, Inquiry, Collaboration, Organization, and Reading and are utilized by teachers across our building.
A piece of the program includes the AVID Elective Course. To be in the Elective Course, students are required to apply, be interviewed, and be accepted into the course. We run sections AVID 1 (for freshmen and sophomores), AVID 2 (for sophomores who completed AVID 1 freshman year), AVID 3 (for juniors), and AVID 4 (for seniors) each year. Incoming Mustangs and current freshman and soohomores are welcome to apply for the AVID Elective course during our annual recruitment season (December-January).
