Advisement and Supports


All students receive support through our Advisory model. The advisor is responsible for a smaller group of students and checks in on their academic progress as well as social and emotional well-being. Every advisory meets and concentrates on various aspects of the students’ lives. There is time to monitor online grades through PowerSchool and discuss where growth could occur or celebrate successes. Team building activities allow the students to form a smaller community and support one another. The advisor also serves as the liaison between the parents, other teachers and the students. Conferences are often used to review report card data, discuss behavioral concerns and set up specific supports for individual students. 9th grade students also participate in a weekly Freshman Seminar, in which we support with the transition to high school. We use a “restorative circle” approach in this class.


Tutoring is available after-school for students who may want extra help in achieving their academic goals. In addition to after-school support, students have the opportunity to attend Saturday Academy to prepare for the Regents exams. Finally, through our partnership with LaGuardia Community College, we often have field work interns helping out in classrooms. There are extensive opportunities for students to get the help they need, and all have access to online practice and support in literacy and mathematics through Achieve3000 and ALEKS. We offer after-school and before-school intervention groups for students who are struggling with the demands of our challenging academic program.


Finally, we offer a range of college- and career-readiness support through small group mentoring, guest speakers, and College and Career Foundations classes. Our partners at LaGuardia Community College, Con Edison, and National Grid give their time to provide feedback to teachers and mentor small groups of students on a monthly basis about the expectations of life after high school. We feel confident that students who leave our program will be well positioned to secure a range of careers or admissions in competitive four-year colleges.
