The Nonnewaug High School Advisory Program is designed to build a sense of community among students and to foster meaningful connections between students and teachers. Each student will be a member of a teacher led advisory group that will meet weekly throughout the school year.
The advisory groups will address important issues confronting NHS students. Teachers and certified staff serve as facilitators in group discussion and attempt to open dialogue between students. In the student’s educational experience, the Advisory Program supplements classroom academics by providing an additional opportunity for personal growth. It also builds relationships between students and adult school community members.
