    AVID? What's that?

    Dear RTMS 6th and 7th Grade Parents and Guardians,


    Do you have a student with college and career goals who could use academic, organizational, social, or emotional support in getting there? If this sounds like your student, then the AVID class is a great choice for them. The AVID program is recognized nationally for its strength, and our AVID team at RTMS would love to be a part of your student’s middle school journey. All students interested in AVID must apply, and the application is now open and available for current RTMS 6th and 7th graders. Current RTMS AVID 7 students do not need to reapply.


    The link to apply for AVID at RTMS for the 2024-2025 school year is Ronald Thornton AVID Application 


    If your student is an 8th grader who wishes to pursue AVID in high school, here are the links for those:


    The AVID Elective is an application-based class where motivated students receive organizational, academic, and personal support to succeed in academically rigorous classes. This includes the use of a planner, organization systems, note-taking skills, student-led tutorials, grade checks, collaborative learning, guest speakers, character building, and college visits each year. Please speak with your student to see if they would like to apply. All students who submit applications will be interviewed and complete the selection process to determine qualification.


    The application is due Friday, February 2, 2024, and is posted on the Fort Bend ISD website or you can request an application from Mrs. Joseph.


    Interviews will be conducted in February 2024 and students will be notified of acceptance  prior to spring break in March 2023 for the 2023-2024 school year.

    For more information about AVID, please contact Kurllenne Martin.
