The Teacher-Advisor and Individual Advisor assume the responsibility of monitoring, both on an individual and on a collective level, the academic, pedagogical and disciplinary progress of students in the section.  They serve as liaisons to coordinate communication between students, teachers and parents.

b)

They meet individually with students and their parents as a follow-up to information obtained from Administrators and other teachers regarding students’ academic, disciplinary and personal problems.

c)

They inform students about the School’s rules and regulations, its distinctive features, its organization and available services (i.e. Counseling Office) and advise them with regard to their responsibilities, duties and rights.

d)

They ensure a spirit of cooperation, cohesion and good communication among students in order to foster a climate conducive to student participation in extracurricular activities. they are concerned, as are the students, with activities that broaden students’ education and encourage students' participation in Junior High School Student Community activities. To this end, they collaborate with the 5-member Class Board.

e)

Class counseling takes place during Social Life sessions.  Students meet with their Teacher-Advisor in their section's homeroom where possible student concerns that affect the section (group) are raised, predominantly by the Class President.
