Alamitos Intermediate Named AVID National Demonstration School
Alamitos Intermediate School was named an AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) National Demonstration School last week. Less than 200 schools across the nation and a select few in Orange County earn the prestigious designation, which signifies exemplary school-wide implementation of AVID’s proven college readiness systems and strategies.
Alamitos Intermediate is GGUSD’s third AVID National Demonstration School, making GGUSD the first and only district in California to have three National Demonstration Schools. Doig Intermediate School and Santiago High School also hold the distinction, each having passed a rigorous validation process ensuring AVID strategies are implemented at the highest level across all classrooms.
Last week, officials from the AVID Center and Alamitos Principal Christine Pijl made the announcement to a packed multipurpose room of excited students and staff. Alamitos Intermediate is only the ninth AVID National Demonstration School in Orange County.
