Well-being of our staff and students is a crucial focus for XIS. To help meet this need, all students and teaching staff participate in the XIS hand-crafted Advisory Program. The goal of Advisory is to get students connected with XIS staff in order to help in the development of the whole child. Every week, during the first 10 minutes of school, students go through the XIS created Advisory Workbook with their small group and staff member. Various topics are covered including: career and college planning, emotional health and well-being, developing healthy hobbies and activities, the harm and help of technology, ways and methods to reduce stress, as well as so much more.
Even though XIS is highly devoted to academic success, we know our students are so much more than a grade and so, by daily checking-in and connecting with our students, our students will develop holistically.
