We are an AVID School!:
AVID, Advancement Via Individual Determination is a system for building college readiness and student success. AVID is nationwide and at work in 4,500 elementary, middle, high schools and colleges in 47 states and 19 countries and territories including every single RUSD middle and high school.
Being an AVID Elementary school means the following for Highland Elementary School students:
In the coming weeks, you will be asked to give your thoughts on this question: “What would most help all students in RUSD to be successful?” We need to hear from you as our district begins putting together its Local Control and Accountability Plan. Districts throughout California are crafting these plans, which signal a significant change from the state-controlled “one size fits all” educational plans of the past to a more locally-minded plan that specifically addresses the needs of our students here in Riverside. Make sure to have your voice heard! Come of one of the community meetings, included one right here at our school. You can find a full list of meeting dates and times at: www.successforstudents.org. You also can share your ideas at this website.
The activities in the FOSS program are matched to the way students think at different times in their lives. Upper elementary students construct more advanced concepts by classifying, testing, experimenting, and determining cause and effect relationships among objects, organisms, and systems.
Teachers plan and implement FOSS investigations that provide hands on science instruction which support Highland students as they inquire about the world that we live in through the eyes of a scientist.
