In the Middle School, each student has a faculty advisor who is available for academic and personal advice. The role of the advisor is to be an advocate, coach, mentor and communication point person for his/her advisees. Advisors often initiate grade-level team discussions when there is a concern about an advisee and convey relevant information to parents when needed. Advisors consolidate information on their advisees and communicate this information to parents during Parent/Student/Teacher Conferences twice a year.
Advisory groups meet daily with the goal of supporting each student’s social and academic well-being. Individual and group activities take place in the daily advising period.
NOTE: Outlined below are some of the roles, responsibilities and activities encompassed by the Middle School Advisory Program. There likely will be some variation in the emphasis of the program by grade level, by advisory, and from week to week based on the needs of the students and the school at particular times. Over the course of the entire year, however, the program seeks to fulfill these goals as needed.
