Glencoe is one of two high schools in the Hillsboro School District with the honor of offering an AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) elective class. The AVID class is dedicated to helping students achieve their goal of going to college. The class, held within the regular school day, provides support, academic monitoring, and tutoring. Writing, inquiry, collaboration, and reading, along with tutorials and study skills are the core strategies of the class. Students must apply, interview and be accepted before enrolling in the elective. If you believe your son and/or daughter would benefit from being in AVID, please contact your school counselor immediately for an application.
