Welcome to the newest department here at LQ...the AVID Department!!! We are entering into our 7th year of AVID and are so proud of our students and their accomplishments!  We are excited to announce our new AVID team!! The AVID teachers for the 2013-14 school year are as follows:

AVID 9: Ms. Dang
AVID 10: Mr. Kikawa
AVID 11: Mr. G. Geil
AVID 12: Mrs. Housepian

We also are welcoming a few new college tutors, bringing our total tutoring staff to 17 college tutors and multiple senior tutors!  Wow! The AVID Department is blessed to be a part of a district that has all high schools and junior highs involved in the AVID program, thus providing us with much support and experience.

GGUSD has dedicated much of its resources to the success of the AVID program in all of its schools and continues to embrace the belief that if a student as the "Individual Determination" combined with the support of the AVID program, he/she can achieve great things and go on to college! Take a look at some of the links to additional web pages and files from this home page. We hope these additional resources help everyone receive a better understanding of what the AVID Program is all about! If you have any questions about our program, please feel free to contact the AVID Coordinator (Mr. Geil) at
