Chase Middle School is an AVID Showcase School

In November 2019 Chase Middle School hosted it's first AVID Showcase event.  Educators from around the area attended to learn more about the AVID program and how Chase has found success with AVID implementation for over a decade.  AVID Elective students were to stars of this successful event!  Way to go Chase!
