Farb Middle School Wins Special Distinction from AVID

2010 Salute to Excellence StudentsIt’s all about academic success. With that goal in mind, Farb Middle School has been named an AVID National Demonstration School, the first and only school of its kind in the district. AVID, which stands for Advancement Via Individual Determination, establishes high expectations and requires extra study time and work for students, gearing them toward higher education. Through this distinction, Farb has been recognized for its success in creating a college-bound culture that meets the AVID criteria and will now serve as a role model for other schools and organizations. Congratulations to the Farb staff, students and parents on this outstanding achievement. For more information, please contact Susan Levy, principal, or Donna Rankin, AVID coordinator, at (858) 496-8090.
