Our character mission for all students is anchored in five core values: Respect, Responsibility, Integrity, Perseverance, and Citizenship. Students learn what these values look like in our school setting and how to apply them beyond.
One way that our Jr. High students learn about and live the Cougar Anchors is through their Advisory Groups. Advisories meet weekly. They consist of small groups of same-gender, same-grade students led by an advisor. One goal for each advisory is to work on the citizenship anchor by connecting with or serving our community. Each group creates a project through which they exercise their citizenship skills. They present their work to our community at School Committee Meetings. Attached are some of our Advisory presentations to the community.
