Advisory Class

Four days a week, our bell schedule includes a 35-minute Advisory period for students in all grades. This class time is used to promote positive school climate and culture, social and emotional development, and targeted learning in a variety of areas. Advisory period includes silent reading time, during which students can read books of their own choosing to match their reading level and personal interests. Frequent check-ins with Advisory teachers ensure that every student is well known by at least one teacher who can be their advocate for social and academic success.
