United for Success puts into action the theory that a strong community supports better learning. Emotional and social wellness are built into our curriculum through team-building experiences, such as our incredible Point Reyes camping trip, and the family-like atmosphere of advisory period, where students meet each day with the same teacher-advisor.
Students meet in advisory 4 days a week (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday) to ensure that every child is connected to a caring adult who is focussed on supporting them. It is a space where we build community in circles. Also, as students transition from one teacher in elementary school to many teachers in middle school, the advisor remains the primary singular contact for parents.
