Every day between 2nd and 3rd period, students will participate in either advisory (Tuesday, Thursday) or a breakout session (Monday, Wednesday, Friday).
Advisory acts as a student's "home room" over the course of the year. On Tuesdays, students will work together through developing soft skills such as leadership, communication, time management, and community building. Oftentimes, this time is utilized for school announcements or protocol (teaching a computer application, designing a school function, etc.) On Thursdays, students may meet for a school program such as 4-H or FFA. Students not participating in these functions will have time to work.
Advisory counts as a 1/4th social studies credit each year and is graded pass/fail.
At the beginning of each semester, students will have the opportunity to sign up for breakout sessions - classes that are focused around instructor and student interests that don't fit into a typical school setting. Some offerings include:
These classes are included as apart of the advisory grade and are based on personal growth.
