Health & Counseling
The High School Mentor support students’ emotional well-being and overall progress in school. She helps students make healthy choices and identify behaviors that may hinder success. The Mentor offers individual and small group counseling and facilitates support among parents, faculty, and others as needed. She also contributes to the high school orientation and teaches the health curriculum.
The block has focused on a combination of emotional intelligence, communication skills, personal values, identity, mindfulness, healthy relationships and sexual health. Like all health classes, the curriculum is evolving and often dictated by the expressed and observed needs of the group. This is traditionally a shorter block than in 9th and 10th grades.
