At the beginning of the year, new students and their families are introduced to many aspects of school life through New Student Orientation. Then, all new students are assigned to a "supervised prep," or a designated work period for students, in which a teacher and a senior student serve as resources to help new students adjust to the academic expectations of the school.
Throughout the year, all High School students work closely with an advisor to make the transition to High School. Advisors may be seen as mentors, motivators, confidants, and holders of resources. They are also a primary point of contact for parents regarding their child's progress and success in the High School.
