AVID stands for Advancement Via Individual Determination. As such, the students who are admitted to AVID are motivated, hardworking, and college-bound, ready to set goals and tackle obstacles. Every Tuesday and Thursday, students advance their thinking through collaborative inquiry tutorials, with the guidance of college tutors. Our curriculum is focused on college and career awareness and how to navigate the challenges of high school. 
The AVID teachers for the 2023-2024 school year are as follows:

AVID 9: Ms. Kim Ngo | [email protected]
AVID 10: Mr. Nakul Poredi | [email protected]
AVID 11 & 12: Ms. Jaime Dinh | [email protected]

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 students have "Individual Determination" combined with the support of the AVID program, they can achieve great things and go on to college!
