Mountain View is an AVID Certified elementary school!  

AVID stands for Advancement Via Individual Determination.  AVID Elementary promotes student success by implementing specific skills that enable all students to be prepared and organized.  These skills are habits, behaviors, and strategies that students can learn, strengthen and maintain throughout their academic careers.  

AVID Elementary is designed to be embedded into the daily instruction of all elementary classrooms, across entire grade levels, to impact school-wide structures. Like AVID Secondary, AVID Elementary Essentials focus on the four necessary areas to ensure that all students are poised for academic success: Instruction, Culture, Leadership, and Systems.
