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 study skills, college preparation and ACT 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 ACT support during Advisory time. Tuesday-Thursday advisories rotate regularly to allow students to address current needs.
