AVID Program

J.L. Simpson Middle School
2015-2016 School Year

“AVID’s mission is to close the achievement gap by preparing all students for college readiness and success in a global society.” H4OC supported an AVID field trip to Camp Highroads. Nineteen students were faced with physical and emotional challenges demanding teamwork for success. The confidence and trust build through the activity will lay the foundation for additional lessons throughout the school year involving interviewing skills, collaborative learning, and public speaking.
