• At Simmons-Pinckney, we lead our scholars toward college and career readiness with AVID.

    is an acronym for Advancement Via Individual Determination.

    Student Scholars in each grade level are invited to join the AVID Elective Course taught by Mrs. Shirley Hardiman-Rawnsley.  This course requires an agreement with the student and family to strive higher and harder for college and career readiness in a global society.

    Simmons-Pinckney practices whole-school AVID protocols with each scholar utilizing a 3-inch binder, participating in weekly binder checks, and engaging in strategies to enhance Writing, Inquiry, Collaboration, Organization, and Reading (WICOR).
