Gems logo

GEMS is a student group specifically designed for Varsity girls. The purpose of the group is to help young ladies Grow, Empower, Mature, and Shine together as they go through their years in middle school. Girls are mentored about self-image and self-respect, while other times we discuss drama, boys, academics, and goals. We start and end every meeting hand in hand, in hopes that we will transfer positive energy and thoughts through our girls, which will then turn into positive energy and thoughts into our world. This group is open to all 6th, 7th, and 8th-grade girls.

Activities AVID

AVID, an acronym for Advancement Via Individual Determination, is an international program which helps prepare students for college. This program is an academic, regularly scheduled elective class, during the school day, based on writing as a tool of learning, the inquiry method, and collaborative grouping. Focus on tutoring, reading and organization are included, as well. Students are required to complete an AVID application and be interviewed by AVID site team members, usually in the spring, before the following school year. AVID's main focus is to help VLMS students reach their academic goals and begin working toward continuing their education after high school.
