Support Advisory is the first period of the day from 8:55 am and to 9:30 am. It creates time in the school day for students to participate in activities that support learning such as intervention, study hall, EXPLORATION, and character development. Every 3 weeks a new Advisory class is assigned. There are no grades assigned. If you need help in a class then the Advisory period will provide that for you with Intervention Advisory. If you are falling behind you will be assigned to Study Hall Advisory. If you are on track in all of your classes you will be assigned to Exploration Advisory classes . There is a long list of classes to choose from for Exploration Advisory.
