Purpose of Advisory

The Westbrook High School Advisory program promotes meaningful relationships between staff and students while providing academic support to students.  Through monthly meetings with their advisor, students experience a more personalized learning environment with a structure and set of practices for monitoring and encouraging academic progress and career/college readiness.  Each student, along with his/her counselor and advisor, develops an individualized student success plan to map out his/her educational path and set academic and personal goals.
