AVID Demonstration Schools are exemplary models of the AVID College Readiness System demonstrating the very best AVID strategies and methodologies in both the AVID Elective and schoolwide college readiness practices. Schools and districts interested in implementing AVID or improving their own AVID College Readiness System can arrange to visit these sites and experience a highly successful schoolwide AVID.


At an AVID Demonstration school, visitors can observe:

  • Dedicated and successful implementation of Instruction, Systems, Leadership and Culture
  • Strong and committed leadership
  • Evidence of outstanding student achievement
  • Models of excellent inquiry-based AVID tutorials
  • AVID as a schoolwide approach to school improvement
  • A schoolwide college-going culture with college readiness as a basic expectation
  • A center of learning for AVID best practices
  • A showplace for the synergy and excitement a strong AVID college readiness system creates


To arrange a visit to a Demonstration School, please contact Lynn Nelson or (858) 380-4737.
