PRESTON ELEMENTARY - AN AVID ELEMENTARY SCHOOL!
Students enrolled at Preston Elementary School have daily access to AVID instructional strategies which prepare them for higher level thinking, writing, reading, and organizational skills. In class, AVID strategies promote College Readiness at the earliest stages of learning. Before students leave Preston Elementary School, they will develop a strong foundation in AVID strategies which will prepare them for enrollment in future AVID programs in middle and high school.
AVID Elementary takes a systemic approach through Beginnings, Foundations, and Bridges implementation resources for different levels and settings in order to support all students on their journey to college readiness.
