BAHS is an inclusive community where student’s social, emotional and academic needs are valued, honored and met through personalized learning and authentic relationships.
District 191 secondary schools offer AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination), a college prep program designed to increase the number of students who enroll in four-year colleges. AVID serves all students by ensuring they acquire the organizational and study skills needed for them to be successful. Students learn academic strategies to develop critical thinking skills and ask probing questions.
- Accelerate under-achieving students who have potential into more rigorous courses
- Teach academic and social skills not targeted in other classes
- Provide intensive support with in-class tutors and a strong student/teacher relationship
- Create a positive peer group for students

AVID is also available as an elective course for students. Use of AVID teaching methods, such as Cornell note-taking and group collaboration, takes place in all classes and creates a college-going culture across all schools, so that every student benefits from this renowned national program.
