Leadership and Advisory

Middle School Leadership

In Leadership students shape school culture by reflecting on important issues and planning special projects.  Each week, for forty minutes, students tackle topics like school pride, inclusion and diversity, school-wide celebrations, creating a positive class and school environment, experiential off-campus trips (Yosemite, Ashland, Israel), and starting new clubs, electives or programs. Students also work on their service learning projects. They experience their school as a place where action and ongoing improvement are core values – and they truly make a difference.

Students meet in advisory groups for twenty minutes each week. They learn listening, empathy and problem solving skills in a safe environment.  Here, students have a place to share issues or challenges. Each advisory group sets a structure for participation so each student has the opportunity to respond or share a new perspective.
