Hingham High School: 9th Grade Advisory Program Survey
Hingham High School has implemented a student advisory program for the past two years. The advisory program supports our community of learners by promoting respectful and meaningful relationships among students and with adult advisors. Providing individual attention of this nature will further engage all students as learners, individuals, and valued members of the HHS community. It is our ardent belief that encouraging meaningful relationships with different members of the HHS community will foster the well-being of the whole student and strengthen our school’s commitment to our core values. Each advisory group is intended to be a welcoming, comfortable environment in which students feel they belong and can contribute. Along with supporting our mission statement, advisories are designed to do the following:

Encourage Engagement with the school community

Foster Resiliency through stronger connections to supportive adults

Develop Responsibility to ourselves and to others

Cultivate personal Integrity

Students have met regularly at a specified time with a faculty or staff member. Groups have been randomized within grades, so students will get to know peers and adults with whom they may not regularly interact. The goal is for every student to be known personally by an adult and to strengthen our school community.

Furthermore, student advisories also support 21st century learning expectations:

Critical Thinking, Creativity, and Problem Solving

Initiative, Resilience, and Personal Responsibility

Collaboration, Leadership, and Community Engagement

Effective Oral and Written Communication

Global Awareness

Effective and Appropriate Use of Technology

The following survey will help shape and inform this program for future advisory groups. Please take a moment to complete a survey that will help guide our work. Thank you in advance for your cooperation and feedback.
