Personal Development

Most teachers in the Middle School are also advisors to students. Each student meets daily with his or her advisor. An advisor's support helps students navigate challenges, pressures, and choices that students face at school and sometimes beyond school. The school counselor oversees the advisor program, is a resource for advisors and parents, and another adult carefully overseeing the emotional wellbeing of our students. Advisors also keep an academic watch on their advisees so that students, who may meet with many different teachers through the course of their day, have someone with an eye on their overall performance. Advisors also act as a link between school and home. They reinforce and/or revisit many of following topics mentioned in the sixth, seventh, and eighth grade personal development program.
