An important part of life at MHS is its Advisory system. All new students are assigned to an Advisory that remains together through 12th grade. Advisory meets three times per week for all four years of high school. The advisor is the student's advocate in the building and functions as the primary contact with parents. All advisors have 18 to 22 students in their Advisory and remain with their group for the four years.
In 9th grade, Advisory focuses on creating a community and how to be successful in high school.
In 10th grade, Advisory follows a similar trajectory with an accelerated timeline. During the second semester, each Advisory plans and completes a Community Service Learning Project.
In 11th and 12th grades, Advisory focuses on the college process in depth, in addition to helping guide students through the required Senior Exhibition, while at the same time, supporting academic and social growth.
