  • What makes a Longhorn an AVID student?

     

    A Longhorn AVID student is one who consistently scores in the middle range (high level 2 - level 3) on the FSA tests.  Or one who regularly has C's on their report card.  This student has the drive and determination to be successful, but may need some help getting to those above average grades.  They demonstrate good citizenship and make great choices.  Some AVID students may be the first in their family to attend college, while others may have two parents with advanced degrees.   Longhorn AVID students come from many different backgrounds, but they all have one thing in common: the drive to make their dreams come true!
