The Advisory Program at STMS offers an opportunity for students to meet with an adult and a small group of students regularly for academic guidance, coordination between home and school, and to find ways for the student to be successful, as well as to connect to a peer group.
The goals of our Advisory Program are:
- to encourage community building among students and with teachers and staff, thereby increasing appropriate behaviors, and
- to provide service opportunities to students.
Encouraging a sense of belonging and respect is an important part of our Advisory Program. The service focus in small group advisory sessions allows students and teachers to work together on a service project. In addition, the program encourages students to have a positive spirit about the school community and make appropriate decisions. Finally, students will participate in assemblies addressing a variety of middle school emotional and behavioral needs.
