Middle School Study Halls & Tutorial
For those students who need additional support, there are 30-minute tutorial sessions after lunch, Monday through Thursday. These sessions are usually voluntary, but teachers may assign a student to tutorial to make up work. Mentors and parents can also request that a struggling student be assigned mandatory tutorial. Students who are in advanced classes often use this time to work on assignments. If a student does not need to meet with one of their teachers at that time, then they must go to their mentor and work on homework assignments or study.
A Night Study Hall is held Sunday through Thursday, from 6:15 to 7:45 for all boarding students. Students may study in their rooms under the supervision of the dorm staff. If a student's grades are low they are required to study in Community Hall under the supervision of a teacher until grades improve.
At the Middle School, the Study Improvement Plan, or SIP, begins at the begining of sports and intermurals, and ends at 5:00 Monday through Thursday. On Friday, SIP is held from 3:00- 5:00. Students who have not completed homework assignments are required to attend. A student is recommended for SIP based on grades or at the request of parents or the principal.
