• At Pleasant Valley Middle School we have AVID and AVID Excel for 7th and 8th graders.  AVID and AVID Excel are programs to help students become more aware abour college (2-year and 4-year) and careers.  In order to do this students will learn how to become a better student to graduate high school and go to college.  AVID Excel is for second language learners.  This will help them to see that, although they are learning English, college is still an option for them. In 6th grade they will have the opportunity to apply.  There will be an interview and selection process.  Other main points are:

    Learning about carreers

    Learning about colleges (2 year and 4 year)

    Tutorial or Scholar groups 2x a week -these groups are opportunites to get help with a tough question from a core class

    Guest speakers 

    Field Trips
