Avid Exiting Essay
There are many reasons why I wish to get out of the Avid program. I personally feel like this class isn’t helping me in any way shape or form, I know I’ll do fine without Avid and I want to do electives which I would actually enjoy and would make my remaining two years of high school memorable.

I’m aware that this is a new year and a fresh start but if it’s the same thing all over again, I know I would regret staying in the program for yet another year.
The only reason I’ve chosen to stay in Avid the past two years want to please people who encouraged me to stay but...
