AVID (Advancement via Individual Determination) is an elective class offered to 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students who would like to prepare for four-year colleges and universities. Students must have satisfactory citizenship, regular attendance, and teacher recommendations. Applicants must be motivated to work toward college eligibility. AVID students are selected through an interview process while in elementary school. Ms. Hillary Szalkiewicz leads the AVID program at FFMS.
