Fountain Middle School is proud to be a part of the District 8 AVID program. Our school offers AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) elective courses during our enrichment period, meeting daily for all grade levels. The enrichment course focuses on the necessary steps and skills to help ensure high school, college, and career success in future years.
STEM education refers to science, technology, engineering and math, disciplines that are important not only for students but for the country in general. As these classes are often more demanding on students, STEM programs encourage students to enroll in and learn these subjects to improve international competitiveness in important fields.
