Excellence for Every Child
Based on data over the last couple of years, NMS is on its way to being recognized as an AVID School-wide Site of Distinction. "An AVID School-wide Site of Distinction represents the highest level of AVID implementation fidelity demonstrating excellence in instructional practice and the promotion of college readiness school-wide. This elite group of candidate schools represents less than 10% of all AVID middle and high schools worldwide.
This is the first year AVID is recognizing School-wide Sites of Distinction as part of the certification process." By utilizing strategies such as Cornell Notes, interactive notebooks, and Reading with a Pencil in order to better prepare all students for college and career, Northwest is one of two schools in the county to be given this distinct honor.
