Student Support & Guidance

Danville offers students multiple avenues for academic and emotional support.

We believe that in order for students to be ready and able to learn, they must feel confident in themselves, comfortable with their peers and their environment, and trust that mistakes will be supported as learning opportunities.

Advisory in Grades 7-12

Advisories are student groups of 7-10 students, in the same grade, paired with a faculty advisor.

Advisory meets twice per week, for 40 minutes on Mondays and Thursdays. Advisors are the primary advocate for students.

Advisory meetings in high school also cover the following: weekly grade and academic conferences, career planning, college exploration and application organization and team building.

Monthly assemblies to honor academic success, good citizenship and accomplishments also take place during advisory.

The Student Support Team….

also manages the process of referring students to be screened for speech and occupational therapy services, as well as initiating evaluation and testing for special education or 504 services.
