Metcalf to host AVID parent information night

Metcalf Junior High will host an information night for parents about the school's Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) program on March 12 at 7:30 p.m. The mission of AVID is to ensure that all students, especially students in the academic middle, will succeed in the most rigorous honors/ Advanced Placement curriculum while participating in school activities. AVID is a college prep program; it is not remedial. The goal is that the students be ready to enroll in a four-year college upon completion of high school. 

At the information night, parents will learn more about the AVID program, criteria for students to join AVID, the application process and more. 

If you are unable to attend but would like more information, please contact Jessica Thomas at or Principal Kelly Ronn at
