Eastridge & EIMS Recognized as AVID Schoolwide Sites of Distinction

For the 5th consequtive year East Irondequoit Middle School has been chosen as an AVID Schoolwide Site of Distinction and continues to be the only National Demonstration School in New York State.  Eastridge High school has also been chosen as an AVID Schoolwide Site of Distinction for the 3rd straight year. 

This honor is awarded to a small subset of AVID school campuses that have demonstrated outstanding commitment to their students. This distinction:

  • Illustrates a commitment to equity and opportunity for all students on a campus.
  • Acknowledges rigorous academic opportunities for all students throughout the campus.
  • Shows a commitment to superb instructional practices across the school.

The principals and the faculty at both schools have established a culture across campus that sets high expectations for all students. Whether students are taking AVID as an elective class, or exposed to and using the skills and tools AVID brings teachers in core classes, our staff is recognized by AVID as a TOP example of work in these important areas.

This is an outstanding honor for both schools and our district!
