When compared to students of similar demographics (Deer Park High School students who were invited to join AVID but who declined the offer), AVID students score higher on the PSAT, take an average of twice the number of advanced courses, have better attendance, lower disciplinary referrals, and a significantly higher GPA.
Over the past 4 years, DPHS graduating AVID students have received more than $600,000 in scholarship offers. The 2012 graduating AVID class received well over $150,000 in scholarship offers.
100% of the 2012 graduating AVID seniors were accepted into 4-year universities.
All AVID students are required to participate in rigorous coursework, such as PAP, AP or Dual-Credit courses. Last year, more AVID students were successful in completing their rigorous coursework than students at DPHS who were not in AVID. Of the students enrolled in Advanced Placement courses, 97% of the AVID students successfully completed these courses with passing grades, as compared to 90% of non-AVID students. Of the students enrolled in Pre-AP courses, 97% of the AVID students were successful in these courses, versus 90% of non-AVID students.
