DP’s AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) provides an integrated support program for motivated students to advance beyond high school and into a four-year university. Students from underrepresented ethnic backgrounds or with parents without college degrees, who nevertheless are motivated to work hard and make the jump to a university, should consider applying to be in the AVID Elective.
We are justifiably proud of our AVID program and our students’ success in overcoming obstacles and breaking stereotypes. Our AVID students consistently outperform Dos Pueblos as a whole with respect to academic achievement and college admissions rates. In 2018, over 90% of our AVID seniors were admitted to a 4-year university, more than double the rate of DP as a whole!
