Our AVID program focuses on more than just academic content and rigor.  We believe students need critical thinking skills so they can evaluate, analyze and synthesize information that is presented to them.  We help our scholars develop specific skills around goal setting, time management, and note-taking. Our dedicated team of educators uses a variety of strategies to engage students of a variety of ability levels and language needs. 

The AVID team at Ramirez highly encourages committing to both years while attending Ramirez.   Our students have the option to attend college field trips in both 7th and 8th grades to experience various colleges in our area.  Our program is structured:

7th Grade: Highly structured and focused on learning how to take focused notes, AVID tutorials, organization skills, and team building. 

8th Grade:
Builds on the success of the 7th-grade program while focusing on community building and promoting an AVID family.  Our hope is that students are energized to continue into a high school AVID program.
