One of approximately 125 AVID Demonstation Schools, Heritage was selected through an application process, screening and review that included a site visit.
"Heritage High School was selected as an AVID Demonstration School because it has implemented the AVID system throughout the school and can serve as a model for new AVID sites," said AVID Executive Director Jim Nelson.
Schools around the world that are preparing to implement the system will visit Demonstration Schools to observe a highly evolved AVID system. More than 430 Heritage students are enrolled in the program.
"We have a tremendous population of AVID students at Heritage High School," said AVID Coordinator Justin Marquis. "We can provide them with the opportunities to graduate high school prepared to enroll in college, but they need to develop the motivation on their own. I could not be more proud of a group of students who have all made an incredible commitment to their future."
