The 6th, 7th and 8th grade homeroom teachers have primary responsibility for students in their homerooms. This includes parent conferences and response to parent concerns, coordinating faculty support for specific students problems and monitoring each student's ongoing progress in all of his or her classes. In 7th and 8th grade, the advisors collect grade reports and write an overall comment on each advisee's performance. One "head" homeroom teacher in each grade coordinates advisory group and team activities for his or her grade.
The school learning specialist works with all new students when they arrive, and then works individually or in small groups with children who need ongoing support. There is also a teacher who works with individuals or small groups of students who need extra help in mathematics. In 8th grade, an extra algebra period is scheduled each week to give support to students who would benefit, and another period can be set aside for help with writing.
