In middle school, the students’ lockers and most core courses are in a “House”. The Dean, Counselor and Secretary work together to keep the House in order.
Deans:Help keep students safe and remind students to follow the rules. They will also work with teachers on instruction and curriculum.
Counselors:Help students in three main ways: individually, small groups, and classroom lessons. Classroom lessons include bully prevention, academic planning and career exploration.
Secretaries:Handle attendance, bus passes, early dismissals and general housekeeping duties.
