AVID, Advancement Via Individual Determination, is an instructional system that is designed to increase student learning and performance. AVID is an integral part of our strategy to create a school culture that supports high expectations and levels of achievement. Teachers use AVID methodologies to develop students’ critical thinking, literacy, and mathematics skills and systematically and explicitly teach students from Years 7 to 12 the skills, mindset and behaviours necessary for academic success.
At Baldivis Secondary College, we encourage all our students to strive to be the best they can – we understand that not all students need or want to go to university, but in the highly competitive world we live in, the AVID system will assist our students to become the kind of person employers will want to hire, companies will want to give apprenticeships to, and develop skills that would assist them to succeed in business.
