Heaton is an AVID National Demonstration School
On Thursday, March 8, 2018, Heaton Middle School was designated a National Demonstration School by AVID officials. Of the 6000 AVID schools nation-wide, only 170 schools have this designation. We join an elite group of schools nationwide to obtain this honor. As an AVID school, we were selected because we have implemented the AVID Systems throughout the school to help students, and we can serve as a model to other schools. AVID strategies in Writing, Inquiry, Collaboration, Organization, and Reading (WICOR) are the core of how we prepare students for the rigors of high school and college every single day! Congratulations to our staff and students.
