Advisory

Slideshow

Middle and High school students at Lincoln Community School participate in advisory programs.  In general, advisory serves as a grade level home base through which students explore developmentally appropriate topics including academic skills, interpersonal skills, digital citizenship, and strategies for self-care.  

In Middle School, advisory groups are aligned through a house system that brings students together through joint and competitive activities, both across and among grade level groups.  These activities ranges from academic extensions to community building events. Through advisory blocks, students also engage in student-led assemblies and a “Long Advisory” program that focuses on communication skills, self-care, student skills, and building identify.  

In High School, advisory focuses on grade-specific needs.  Students work with advisors, the counselor and the principal to continue to explore topics around wellbeing.  Additionally, the focus becomes more direct academic advising, as advisory topics move to IB expectations including the capstone Personal Project in Grade 10 and the requirements of the Diploma Programme in Grades 11 and 12.
