Adviser Comments

"It's a cool experience. The field trips are what I like the most. It's important for students to visit colleges they might attend." -Mr. Gutierrez

"I love the family-like atmosphere of our AVID classroom. Our students are excellent at collaboration and peer tutoring, which are great skills." -Mrs. Mendoza

Shadow Days

We look forward to hosting Shadow Days with our AVID friends at Foothill Ranch and Westside Charter at Frontier in December.  The FHS students will speak to the 8th graders about their personal experiences in AVID and they will take 7th and  8th grade students to the 3rd period of the AVID 10th-11th grade schedules and observe AVID tutorials during 4th period.
