Orange Unified School District began offering AVID classes to its middle and high school students in 2013 in an effort to help support all students in their efforts to attend post secondary education. AVID, which stands for Advancement Via Individual Determination, is a college readiness program designed to help students develop the skills they need to be successful in college. The program places special emphasis on growing writing, critical thinking, teamwork, organization and reading skills.
Esplanade Elementary School has offered AVID Elementary to students in 5th and 6th grades since 2015. This program is designed to develop encompassing communication, organization, and writing skills necessary to support students as they advance to higher education.
