Spring Valley HS recognized for college readiness

Spring Valley High School was selected as a National Demonstration School by AVID (Advanced Via Individual Determination), a nonprofit organization providing educators with resources to support student success. 

“It is a tremendous honor to be selected as a National Demo Site, and we are proud of our AVID program and our school as a whole,” said Spring Valley High School Principal Tara Powell. “The use of AVID strategies schoolwide has positively impacted students and staff, and we continue to see a more engaged and college-ready student body.”

AVID fosters a safe and open culture, high expectations for teachers and students, and collaboration in all classrooms. 

Through the AVID College and Career Readiness System, Spring Valley High School’s AVID class helps students hone their academic skills, including note-taking, organization, time management, and critical thinking. They engage in peer tutoring, collaborative study groups, and student-centered activities. With AVID’s help, students gain the soft skills and confidence to take on a college- and career-ready path.
