AVID is a school-wide strategy to improve student performance, especially for those in the academic middle who have the desire to go to college and willingness to work hard, but are falling short of their potential.

Educators from around the world looking to improve student achievement visit demonstration schools like North Canyon to see AVID in action.

Eight schools in the district have embraced the AVID approach. In addition to North Canyon, they are Shadow Mountain High School, Greenway Middle School (also a demonstration site), Vista Verde, Shea, Aire Libre, Cactus View and Palomino Intermediate.
