Teacher Advisor Group (TAG)

Every morning, students meet in their multi-grade Teacher Advisor Group (TAG). Teacher advisors promote the academic and social well-being of all students in their care. TAG classes also encourage cross-grade socialization. Many service initiatives are organized through TAG groups.

Teacher advisors play a number of roles in Middle School life:

  • act as a student's first daily point of contact, sharing information and taking attendance;
  • monitor the progress of their students and offer encouragement and positive feedback;
  • act as liaison with their students' other teachers;
  • help their students set and achieve goals throughout the year; and
  • monitor their students' extracurricular involvement and encourage participation.
