  •  We are an AVID School!


    AVID stands for Advancement Via Individual Determination and ALL students at Fort King Middle School are AVID students. Students receive instruction from teachers who have received professional development about AVID teaching strategies that focus on Writing, Inquiry, Collaboration, Organization, and Reading, also known as WICOR.


    Students also receive instruction about the Three Es—Enrollment, Enlistment, and Employment. Students are encouraged to begin thinking about their future paths now, and receive instruction about how to build a roadmap for the future.


    What's your E? Enroll, Enlist, or Employ -- BE ALL IN! What better way to make MCPS’s 3 Es relevant to middle school students?
