Advisor Expectations

The Advisor creates an environment in which students know that they have an advocate, a mentor, and a go-to person for any issue or question that they might encounter in their high school careers. The Advisor is a point of contact for students when they have questions. The Advisor may not have all of the answers, but can at least help to brainstorm possible solutions or draw other people into the conversation. The Advisor also helps to monitor progress in academics, as well as act as another person who may be able to help students with issues outside of academics.
