A key component of the close relationships you’ll form with your teachers and peers at Drew is advisory. Advisories are made up of approximately 12 students from the same grade level, along with a faculty member who serves as the group leader. There is one advisory period each week of the school year.

Your advisor is your primary adult advocate on campus who will act as the liaison between you, your family, and Drew throughout your four years at Drew. Your advisor provides individualized support while facilitating a bonding and learning experience within your full advisory group.

Each grade level has an advisory theme that is explored and discussed throughout the year in a series of activities, discussions, and reflections:
  • 9th Grade:  Foundations of Mindfulness
  • 10th Grade:  What are you? A portfolio about me
  • 11th Grade: Power and Justice in The City
  • 12th Grade: Leadership and Social Action

Experience What High School Should Be

Drew knows and believes in teenagers. We engage each student in a process of intellectual discovery to develop an individual voice, the confidence to express it, and the empathy to understand its impact.
