Research shows that a supportive Advisory program, designed to promote the building of student/teacher relationships and goal-setting, increases student performance. Kensington Woods' advisory program allows students to build personal relationships with their teachers and develop themselves academically.
On Mondays, students meet in a grade-level advisory where they discuss grade specific needs, including building social and emotional skills, developing a growth mindset, study skills, setting goals and future plans, college research and application process and SAT prep. Students also develop personal relationships with their advisor, who acts as an advocate for each student.
Tuesday-Thursday, students meet with teachers and address academic needs, including enrichment, extra help and computer lab time. Juniors also are given individualized SAT support. Tuesday-Thursday advisories rotate regularly to allow students to address current needs. Some student clubs and organizations also meet during these times.
