The adolescents in our school need at least one person, an adviser, who knows them well. These students need an advocate, someone who will commit themselves to ensuring a successful school year for each student.
These growing students need individual academic guidance. Our Middle School teachers are responsible for over 140 students each day. Splitting the students among 6 teachers will ensure that no child silently falls behind and fails. Each adviser will contact parents immediately when a concern arises.
As these students push to be more independent, each advisory group will learn to work together as a team to complete projects, tackle tough ideas, and problem solve creative solutions in a group setting. Advisory groups meet each afternoon for a 1/2 hour class on an A/B day schedule.
