Each student in the Middle School has a faculty advisor. The advisor serves as the student’s advocate, guide, and mentor. With the Dean of Students, the School Counselor develops advisory programs and activities that address issues commonly experienced by students in Middle School. Students meet with their advisor several times per week and are encouraged to seek their advisor’s assistance as needed. The advisor can provide advice about motivation, organization, study habits, and communicate with teachers. Parents who have concerns about any aspect of their child’s social or academic progress should initiate contact with the Academic Dean or Guidance Counselor.
