WSE is an AVID school. AVID is advancement via individual determination. AVID's mission is to close the opportunity gap by preparing all students for college and career readiness and success in a global society.
The AVID traits for January were Perseverance and Grit. Having perseverance and grit is a trait of student success. When you have grit and perseverance, you continue working towards your goal even if it takes a long time to get there. Perseverance is persistence in doing something despite difficulty or delay in success. We are so proud of all of our AVID Ambassadors at West Smithfield, where Eagles are future focused!
