AVID stands for Achievement Via Individual Determination. The AVID elective targets 7th and 8th grade students in the academic middle who have the desire to go to college and the willingness to work hard. These are students who are capable of completing rigorous curriculum but may be falling short of their potential. AVID is a year-long class where students learn organizational and study skills, work on critical thinking and questioning techniques, get academic help from peers and college tutors, and participate in enrichment and motivational activities that make college seem attainable. Students are selected through a recommendation and interview process. Academic performance, attitude, and other qualifying factors make a student eligible for the AVID program. Usually, the AVID Coordinator will contact a student and his/her parents directly to participate in the program. More information is available online at www.avidonline.org

The Leadership class is designed to provide students the opportunity to help create and organize student activities at Greene. Students will be expected to spend time beyond the class period and outside the school day to perform these activities.
Leadership students will analyze important leadership skills throughout the semester. Students will practice organization and planning skills as they work in committees and organize activities. They will examine group dynamics and gain skills in time and stress management, activity planning, public speaking, and self-awareness.
Math Workshop is intended for students who may need extra help in order to be successful in their math classes. In a relaxed, supportive environment with no more than 15-18 students and a math teacher who is familiar with their respective grade level program, students will work with 8th grade tutors to help them meet their individual math needs. Through individual and small group tutoring, organizational help, games, and computer programs, students will learn how to succeed in math.
