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.
